"Love A Baby" Diaper Drive 2015

Youth & Family Services, Inc. is inviting community members to assist babies in need by donating diapers, pull-ups, and baby wipes, through our 3rd annual “Love a Baby” Diaper Drive throughout the month of February. Our goal this year is to collect 800 packages! Diapers we receive will benefit children in our emergency shelter, foster care, and independent living programs. We’ve seen a great need for diapers among our different programs that serve youth and families because diapers are a bare essential for every baby!

Foster Care Spotlight: The Lenharts

Tiffanie Lenhart says this quote from faith leader and orphan advocate David Platt sums up her journey toward foster care:

“Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms,” Platt writes. “But once you do, everything changes.”

Foster Care Spotlight: The Arbetellos

Kathryn Arbetello 

Walking through the mall with Kathryn Elizabeth Arbetello is like walking down the red carpet with a movie star.  Whatever star power is – she’s got it!  People love to stop and talk to her, comment on her pretty curly hair and cute little glasses.  She loves all the attention, and hams it up for her fans.

Life is good for this silly, adorable three year old, but it wasn’t always so good.
