Wanted: Foster and adoptive families

COBYS is looking for loving families

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. If you have discerned the call to serve kids who are in need of a safe, loving environment, we’ll help you learn about the ways you can answer that call.


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?


Want to learn more?

COBYS is hosting Fostering Hope: Families Wanted, a drop-in event on May 22, 2021 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Oregon Dairy. Staff will be available in front of The Market and The Restaurant to discuss the requirements and process of becoming an approved foster/adoptive resource family with COBYS. Ask staff a question about foster care and adoption for a chance to win a gift card to Oregon Dairy. Foster/adoptive parents will be by the playground outside of The Milkhouse to share their experiences and insights in an informal setting. Those who talk with a foster/adoptive parent will receive free mini scoops of ice cream for their family to enjoy (while supplies last). An activity table and a fantastic playground offer kids a chance to play while grownups converse. This family friendly event will be held at Oregon Dairy, 2900 Oregon Pike, Lititz, PA 17543.

How do we start?

For an introduction to the world of foster care and adoption through foster care, sign up to learn more and join a FREE Information Session. COBYS’ staff will describe the unvarnished, fulfilling, life-altering difference you’ll experience while serving as a resource family, as well as the impact you can have on children and families who are in desperate need of loving help and care.

[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
