Post-Permanency Info Meeting
This is a webinar event
|
Do you really know what Post-Permanency services are? We have learned along the way that many families do not know they qualify for this free service in Pennsylvania. Bethany partners with the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) to provide our services at no cost and your insurance is not billed! This meeting is appropriate for any qualifying family in Pennsylvania who wants to learn more information. We also welcome any county workers or other professionals seeking information to share with their clients. Families who have adopted privately, through foster care, or through an agency, internationally or domestically, as well as families with legal custodianship or formal kinship agreements, may receive services for their child(ren) through the age of 18. For children adopted at age 13 or older, these services may be extended until age 21. An invitation will be sent by email prior to the meeting, as well as a survey to help us best serve you! *If you already know about Post-Permanency and are ready for services immediately, then please call SWAN at (800) 585-7926 and request Post-Permanency Services with Bethany Christian Services.
