Welcome to our page!

We always have a need for foster parents for children of all ages, infant through eighteen. Different children have different needs, so the more families we have the better the match we can make for our kids and our foster families. Singles, couples, alternative lifestyles; all are welcome to make the call to change the life of a child, teen or a sibling group. Feel free to call Jennifer at 717-770-1364 or send an email to jennifer.kirsch@kidspeace.org to learn more about our program and criteria/process for applicant foster families.

2019 | six months in quick review

In the first six months of the year our office has celebrated six children being able to return home to their parents and five adoptions that allowed ten children to find their forever home with their foster family. While every adoption has a very special place in our hearts; a special shout out to a family who adopted a sibling group of four teens and another family who adopted a sibling group of three school age children; brothers and sisters being able to stay together for always is a truly wonderful event.

CONGRATULATIONS

Staff members and a foster family from the Harrisburg office were honored at a ceremony in June by the Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN).  The group presented its “Permanency Teamwork Recognition Award” to the Bender family (pic) and KidsPeace associates Trish Bolster, Family Resource Specialist, and Carolyn Dorazio, Casework Supervisor (pic), for their efforts to facilitate the adoption of a 16 year old boy. 

FOSTER PARENT APPRECIATION BANQUET

On April 27, 2018 our Harrisburg office held its annual Foster Parent Appreciation Banquet.  The event was held at the Harrisburg Best Western Premier; The Central Hotel and Conference Center.  The evening was attended by both traditional foster families and kinship families as well as KP staff. The night was full of laughter, support and fellowship as foster parents got to know one another.  Everyone had a wonderful time and look forward to the event again next year.

Christine Covaleski, a Permanency Specialist for Harrisburg, was the imagination behind the first place award winning KidsPeace SWAN display board for the SWAN Spring Quarterly Meeting held in Enola, PA.  The theme was “On an Adventure to Our Forever Home”. This was Christine’s second award winning KidsPeace display board.  Congratulations to Christine for an awesome and imaginative job.
