If you have ever considered becoming a foster or adoptive parent to children in the foster care system, now is the time to contact COBYS Family Services. We’ll help you learn about the ways you can provide a safe and loving home to children in need. There are short and long-term care options for you to consider.
Because of COVID-19, schools are closed, appointments at doctor’s offices are limited and children are not attending church and other community activities. These are often many of the places where abuse or neglect of a child is first detected and reported. During this time of quarantine, COBYS Family Services continues our services to children and families involved in the foster care system.
While there is always a need for qualified resource families, with our area’s current restricted social contact, we anticipate a greater need than normal as restrictions are lifted. COBYS will be here to answer the expected increased call for services.
We need families across our community to join us in providing loving care to children by becoming resource parents. Resource families are a critical part of the foster care system as they serve children and create supportive relationships with birth families.
Please prayerfully consider for you and your family if foster care or adoption is right for you. Is It Time?
Individuals and families interested in becoming Resource Parents, and churches interested in promoting the need for Resource Families please contact us at email@example.com or 717-656-6580.
For a preview to Foster Care, please watch and share this video. Hear three COBYS foster families discuss how and why they provide love, guidance, nurture and structure children need to heal from past experiences to realize their God-given potential, through one of three types of foster care.
Motivated by Christian faith, COBYS Family Services educates, supports, and empowers children and adults to reach their full potential.
The training and approval process provided my husband and me with the opportunity to talk through “what if?” scenarios and helped us to avoid surprises when placement happened. It gave us time to clue in our family and friends about the changes that were going to happen in our life. I’m also grateful for the time to get to know the COBYS staff prior to having any children in our home. – COBYS Resource Parent Laura
