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!

Andrew and I decided that we wanted to foster, with hopes of adopting, when we were told the only way we could have more children was through in-vitro fertilization. We were thankful to have our son Tyler, but knew we could provide a safe place for children in foster care who needed a home. During that time, we had church friends who were involved with KidsPeace Foster Care and we were able to see the impact they made on the children’s lives. We wanted to be a part of that and wanted to welcome children into our home as our own… READ MORE
