Post-Permanency Info Meeting
This is a Virtual event

Do you really know what Post-Permanency services is? Chances are you or someone you know would benefit from it. We have learned along the way 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 to your family. This meeting is appropriate for any qualifying family in Pennsylvania who wants to learn more information. We also welcome any community members, county workers, or other professionals seeking information to share with their clients, friends, or family. 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. This meeting is held virtually and a zoom link will be sent a few days prior. *This information meeting is not required for services to begin. You can self-refer today by calling SWAN at (800) 585-7926 and request an assessment with Bethany Christian Services.

Virtual Foster Care/Adoption Information Meeting
This is a Virtual event
|
Foster Care Adoption - More than 115,000 children in the U.S. are waiting to be adopted. And every year in the U.S., 23,000 youth "age out" of foster care, without the safety and security of a family. So, what does it take to be an adoptive parent? You simply need a willingness to provide stability for kids who need it most. Children in foster care are removed from their families due to neglect or abuse and are often bounced from foster home to foster home. Their greatest desire is to have a permanent family of their own. Will there be challenges along the way? Absolutely. But we provide training, resources, and support services before, during, and after you adopt a child. Join us for a virtual orientation to find out more!
