Many Ways to Give

There are many options for people who support the positive difference COBYS is making in the lives of the children and families we serve. While we receive county and state funding, as well as public and private grants, we couldn’t provide the expert, compassionate care we do, going beyond the basics, without support from people like you. We are blessed that many people agree that potentially life-altering care given with extra time, extra warmth and delivered in a way that shows dignity to all, is worth the effort and expense.

It was a huge commitment, and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make it through, but the group leaders for the parenting segment were wonderful, made coming each week a pleasure, and we could definitely see a difference in our child enrolled in Dina. I can’t say enough good things about their program! –Incredible Years/Dina Program Participant
