Many people tell us that foster care is something that they may have thought about for awhile. Maybe you know someone who was a foster parent or foster child? Maybe you saw something on TV or an ad in the newspaper? Maybe you saw a post on the internet? Maybe you just thought it sounded like something interesting to do?
On June 22, nearly 500 foster children with their families were able to spend the day together at Knoebels Amusement Resort. Knoebels is a family centered amusement park nestled in a beautiful setting in Elysburg, PA, and featuring several award-winning roller coasters and attractions! Once again they very generously sponsored all the foster children and their foster families in the Danville, Pottsville, Williamsport, Scranton, Honesdale, Reading, and Bethlehem KidsPeace foster care offices, providing all-day ride passes and food coupons to enjoy!
Some of the foster children had never been to Knoebels before so it was an awesome first time experience for them. Pictured are some of the children anxiously gazing upon “The Phoenix” roller coaster, one of Knoebels’ most famous and popular rides. They could not wait to ride this award winning wooden roller coaster!
This is the fifth year that Knoebels has very generously sponsored this event for our families and we continue to appreciate their generosity and passion to bringing smiles to the faces of all the children in our programs!

El Programa de Hogares Sustitutos a Largo Plazo KidsHaven, necesita familias bilingües que residan en el condado Northampton interesadas en brindar un hogar cariñoso a jóvenes que hablan sólo español.
Con su ayuda, estos jóvenes prodrán desarrollar destrezas de vida independiente, participar en deportes, actividades recreativas, y aprender más el idioma inglés. Sin embargo, lo más importante es el calor de hogar. La familia recibe un estipendio para ayudar con los gastos del joven, adiestramientos, y apoyo del personal bilingüe, lo cual incluye visitas periódicas al hogar.
Si usted está motivado en promover esperanza para estos jóvenes y obtener mayor información de cómo convertirse en un Hogar Sustituto, comuníquese con Maria Alonso-Tomlinson al 610-799-7741.
