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 greatest joy was] to watch a child who has no life in their eyes become a person again. To watch them start trusting and loving again is something they may never have gotten had they not come into our home. – COBYS Resource Parents Jesse and Bethany
