Fostering Hope: Families Wanted – An Awareness Event for Foster Care and Adoption

(Lancaster) April 19, 2021 – During National Foster Care Month, COBYS Family Services (COBYS) invites the public to learn about foster care and adoption on May 22, 2021 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Oregon Dairy. Fostering Hope: Families Wanted is a drop-in event designed to help educate the community about foster care and adoption. Staff will be available to provide information and answer questions; foster/adoptive parents will share their experiences and insights in an informal setting. This family friendly event will be held at Oregon Dairy, 2900 Oregon Pike, Lititz, PA 17543. During this awareness event, staff will be available in front of The Market and The Restaurant to answer questions about foster care and adoption for a chance to win a gift card to Oregon Dairy. Those who talk with a foster/adoptive parent outside of The Milkhouse 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. COBYS’ staff will also be available to discuss the requirements and process to pursue becoming an approved foster/adoptive resource family with COBYS.
