We regret to inform you that KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs will close its Duncansville, PA office as of November 30, 2018. This decision has been made necessary by a significant decline in the need for programming in the counties served by that office.
In an effort to make this a seamless transition for our existing clients, families, and customers, we are partnering with another local, reputable agency, Bair Foundation. We have every confidence in Bair Foundation’s ability and commitment to providing our clients and foster families with quality services going forward.
After 11/30/18, foster parent inquiries should be directed to Bair Foundation at 814-941-5382.
On behalf of the entire KidsPeace organization, it has been a privilege serving our dedicated foster and adoptive families from the Duncansville office, along with those who benefited from FGDM, Reflections for Life and LifePaths. We offer you all our thanks and good wishes for the future.
NEWS & NOTES
On March 25, KidsPeace’s Duncansville office took part in Superhero Day, a day for kids and their families to get out and enjoy quality time while embracing their inner Superhero! Many families joined us for an afternoon of fun, activities, superhero obstacle course, games, and all the selfies they wanted with their favorites superheroes! There were firetrucks and many other emergency respondent vehicles for kids to explore. It was a fun event and families were able to learn more about KidsPeace, what it is we do, and how they can be a superhero to children in need.
