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.

COBYS staff are on the ball! They are professional and timely. They provide listening ears and helpful resources when challenges arise. They respect and support us, always making us feel like we’re on a highly-functioning team. – COBYS Resource Parent Laura
