May is national foster awareness month. COBYS Family Services, a Lancaster-based Christian agency affiliated with the Atlantic Northeast District of the Church of the Brethren, will talk about foster care and steps to becoming a foster parent. Approximately 15,000 children in Pennsylvania’s child welfare system are unable to live with their biological families due to abuse, neglect, or behavioral problems. The goal of foster care is to assist biological families in resolving the issues that led to the child’s temporary placement in foster care so that families can be reunited as quickly and safely as possible.
