Giving Children the Support They Deserve
At Lifespan Family Services, we’re proud to be a highly respected social service agency committed to excellent care and culturally competent services in DuBois and Western and Central Pennsylvania. We believe empathy, hope, and respect for faith are of utmost importance in our family foster care, adoption, and respite care services. Our strength-based perspective is intended to lead clients to positive outcomes and healthier relationships.
As many counties throughout Pennsylvania are working to reduce their county children and youth services expenses, there is always a need for outside-agency placement of children within existing service homes. We aim to place children close to home and provide the best-suited resources for each family.
Building Families Through Empathy,
Hope, and Respect
Primarily, we aim to place children in temporary to long-term care that our resource families provide. We also offer emergency placement 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as needed. In cases where a child is in immediate need of a safe place to stay, we can provide short-term placement with a foster family for up to 30 days. After this period, we recommend that the child be moved into our traditional foster care program.
