General Information
Description of ServiceFoster Family Care and Recruitment – Through case management and support services, WCA works to help families help themselves. Whether a family seeks out services or is referred through other means, the primary goal of foster family care is to provide a safe and healthy temporary home for children who are required to live separately from their birth families and to reunite them with their families whenever possible.

Family Case Management – The goal of case management is family stabilization. WCA provides in and out-of-home services to families with children from birth to 18 to help families cope with a variety of challenges including parent-child-sibling relationship counseling, HIV/AIDS, drug and alcohol addiction education, parenting, health care, home management, and other issues.

Adoption – WCA provides comprehensive adoption services to birth families, children up to age 18, and persons interested in enlarging their family through adoption. Support services include pre-adoption workshops for prospective adoptive parents, home study materials to assist families in learning about the realities of parenting through adoption, pre-placement orientation and other assessments to determine the prospective parent’s ability to meet the child’s needs. WCA’s adoption services program is recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare as a model approach.
