WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA

Services Offered

The Williamsport office of KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs (FCCP) offers foster care to children of all ages.   Some of our families’ foster single kids and others care for sibling groups.  Just like the kids in our care, foster families also vary widely and we encourage all kinds of families with a heart for helping kids to learn about foster care and find out if it is a good fit for them. In addition, KidsPeace Williamsport 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).

At KidsPeace, we pride ourselves in meeting with persons interested in becoming foster and adoptive parents for children in need.  When you meet or call us, a KidsPeace staff member will discuss the reason that children are placed into care, how KidsPeace works with families to create a healing environment, the benefits of helping children and how individuals and couples can become foster care or adoptive resource for children. We also pride ourselves in supporting our kids and families in the journey through case management and ongoing trainings. 

We want to answer your individual questions. Call our Family Resource Specialist at 570-326-7811 or email Jessie.young@kidspeace.org and we can schedule a time to meet with you at your home or at the office.

KidsPeace Podcast

Significant changes are rocking the foster care system in America. What’s next for foster care and the kids who need it?  In this episode of the podcast series “Conversations with KidsPeace,” we mark National Foster Care Month in May by hearing from KidsPeace foster care specialists Bryan Hoffstetter and Rebecca Cade on the challenges they face, how traditional foster care may become a thing of the past, and what keeps them motivated in such a demanding profession.

KIDSPEACE ROLLER SKATING PARTY!

KidsPeace Williamsport staff, foster parents and our families all had a blast at our roller skating party at Trout Pond Park in March.  It was a great time to skate, snack and spend some time together.  One of our kids even won the limbo contest!  We can’t wait to do it again next year. 

FOREVER FAMILY

We are excited to announce that Landen Lockwood Brown was adopted by Scott and Lorie Brown on March 13, 2019.  Landen has been living with Scott and Lori through foster care for almost two years and now is in his forever home.  We are delighted for everyone and wish them a wonderful and bright future. 

WE LOVE ADOPTIONS!

On May 21, 2019 the McKinney family grew by three members!  Foster parents Corine and Sarah McKinney formally adopted Lewis, Kayla and Lukas who had been in foster care for over a year and living with the McKinney family for 9 months.  It was such a joyous event and we wish all of them the very best.

EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT

Michael Van Ess had been working with caseworker Jessie Young for over a year on his project for the Boy Scout’s Eagle Scout Award.  Michael fundraised and solicited donations and volunteers to help him create “first day” boxes for children entering into foster care.  These boxes contain necessities like toothbrushes and wash clothes as well as activity books, t-shirts and a little stuffed friend.  Michael’s Eagle Scout Ceremony took place on May 11, 2019 and Jessie had the privilege of speaking to the group and sharing about KidsPeace and Michael’s project.  Thank you Michael for the wonderful donation and good luck in all of your future endeavors!   

You can make a difference in the life of a child.
