Mission & Core Values

Our Mission

Motivated by Christian faith, COBYS Family Services educates, supports, and empowers children and adults to reach their full potential.

 

Our Core Values

LIFE IS SACRED – Believing that all people are created in the image of God, we recognize the inherent worth of each client by exhibiting empathy, compassion, and respect.

INTEGRITY – We strive to be honest, authentic, and trustworthy in saying what we mean, matching our behaviors to our words, and taking responsibility for our actions.

FAITH – Jesus is Lord of our organization. We trust him to provide for our ministry’s needs and to empower transformation in our own lives and in the lives of those we serve.

TEAMWORK – Respecting our unique contributions, we value and care for each other, both personally and professionally, and enjoy working and growing together.

SERVANTHOOD – Servant leadership is reflected perfectly in the life and person of Jesus Christ. We seek to integrate the highest standards of professionalism with Christ’s example of joyful service.

Our caseworker(s) have been excellent sounding boards throughout our current case. COBYS staff have been helpful in giving us parenting tips when we feel we need advice. We sometimes feel like a number in the county’s system, but our COBYS caseworker listens to the challenges we face and affirms us. Our caseworkers also empathize well. – COBYS Resource Parents Austin and Cathy
