Live, Work & Play
The Greater DuBois Area has the relaxed lifestyle of a small town that appeals to visitors and residents alike. We have the relaxed lifestyle of rural living, plus award winning health care and education. Conveniently located in Northwest Pennsylvania on Interstate 80, it is less than a day's drive from major cities in the Midwest, East Coast, and Canada. That makes DuBois a convenient stop for travelers, and a perfect location for our businesses to ship their products to market.
Featured Member of the Month
LifeSpan Family Services always believed empathy, hope, and respect for faith should be the main priority in providing culturally competent foster care and adoption services. As a faith-focused, non-profit agency, LifeSpan embraces a strength-based perspective that leads to positive outcomes and healthier relationships with partners and families.
The LifeSpan Family Services Mission...
Since its inception in 2009, Founder and Executive Director, Patrick Shea, has made it a mission of LifeSpan Family Services of Pennsylvania to be a premier social service agency committed to providing exceptional social services to counties throughout PA.
Stories Throughout Our Communities...
LifeSpan's stories take place in small towns throughout central and western Pennsylvania. For example, the family in Westmoreland County, PA that provided a foster child with the experience of a Disney World vacation in Orlando, Florida or the single woman in DuBois, PA that became a foster parent as a result of mentoring a young girl at the local YMCA. LifeSpan boasts about families that open their hearts and homes to children in need of a safe and nurturing environment. These stories are plentiful and the families that star in these roles are extraordinary people. Some may call them heroes, LifeSpan believes that is true, but the superheroes are undoubtedly the children they provide services for.
The Who Behind Our Why...
Children in foster care are special people that develop a unique set of characteristics as a result of their experience. They are tough, resilient, intelligent and resourceful in their growth and development. They thrive in a favorable environment and are active, fun and engaging. LifeSpan currently works with over 25 county agencies in the state to provide foster homes that give children a chance to succeed. It’s LifeSpan's way of doing their part.
It Takes A Village...
LifeSpan believes it takes a strong support network to successfully reunify a child with their biological family. The network consists of county agencies, resource parents, Lifespan staff, and many others who play an integral part in the daily care and well-being of a child in foster care. LifeSpan Family Services believes when successful reunification happens, everyone wins.
Do you have the desire, interest and motivation to do more? By becoming a foster parent, you can positvely impact the life of a child and potentially the entire generation of a family. It’s worth the conversation to learn how you can become a licensed foster parent through LifeSpan Family Services of Pennsylvania. If you can’t be a foster parent but still want to help, simply share the cause with your friends and family.
