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.

[We foster to] give children the opportunity to experience consistency and structure and to let them be kids without concerns that are for adults, such as meals, clothing, caring for other siblings, etc. We do respite to assist other foster families as other families assist us as well. – COBYS Resource Parents Tiff and Jeff
