KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs (FCCP) in Danville offers foster care to children of all ages. In addition, KidsPeace Danville is a licensed adoption agency and an affiliate of the Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN). Other services offered may include Kinship Foster Care, Family Group Decision Making, CRRHH (Community Residential Rehabilitation Host Home), or counseling in the community. Please feel free to contact our office directly for additional details about any of these services!
On Saturday, January 28, the KidsPeace foster care program participated in the annual Susquehanna Valley Mall Children’s Fair. This is a very popular event that attracts hundreds of families to the mall to learn more about different programs that are available for them in their community. The goal of this event is for children to engage in activities with their families and at the same time educate parents on the different programs that are available in their community.
KidsPeace associates – including Paul Price, Tony Gold, and Rebecca Cade from the Danville and Williamsport Foster Care offices — encouraged visiting youngsters and their families to be creative and work with each other decorating a bag and filling it with fresh popcorn! While they are working on this activity, it gives the parents an opportunity to learn more and ask questions about KidsPeace and all the services that we provide.
These children’s fairs are a great way to be visible in the community and educate families on KidsPeace -and to also spread the word of our need for more foster parents in our program. The next children’s fair that we will be participating in is Saturday, March 18th at the Columbia Mall in Bloomsburg. We hope to see you there!
A former KidsPeace associate — and some thirsty folks at her new job — helped to make the holidays brighter for families at the Danville FCCP office last month.
Ginger Henrie continued to help further the KidsPeace mission by taking part in a community service project at her current job in the Bloomsburg (PA) office of Midland, Inc. The office supported Danville’s annual Foster Care Christmas party by collecting empty water bottles, which Ginger and her family recycled for cash at the automated recycling stations at Wal-Mart (pictured below).
The group ended up recycling 2,400 bottles, worth $120 — meaning they not only helped our foster children have a wonderful and memorable holiday party, they also helped the environment by recycling!
Thanks to all the folks at Midland’s Bloomsburg office — Jerry Brokenshire, Jari Williams, Devin Bankes, Matt Jones, and Bonnie Stoppie. And a big “Thank you” to Ginger and her family (including Dylan, Dwight and Nathalie, pictured delivering the check to Martha Brown on 12/8) for their generosity and commitment to the work of KidsPeace!
