A traditional matching event will take place in the outdoor tent area from 12-1 pm. During the matching event, families can talk with permanency workers from several different agencies about the youth they represent, as well as meet some youth who will be attending the event. From 1-3 pm attendees will have the chance to interact on the farm during refreshments, a hayride, cornhole, craft, animals and more!

We need more families to sign up! In order to make this event a success, we are also asking for your help in spreading the word to all foster/adoptive families with whom you are working. The event is free of charge to all pre-registered families. Families are welcomed to bring their children to the event...all are welcome to enjoy a fun day on the farm!

RSVP: Anyone planning to attend should register by September 6, 2021 to Molly Smithmyer msmithmyer@pfcs.org, 814.255.9559 x104.

Consider adopting older youth. In Pennsylvania, youth can remain in foster care until the age of 21. Many of the matching events listed on this page provide families with opportunities to meet older youth in care who are in need of permanency. Even though many of these youth are on their way to young adulthood, they continue to need permanent connections and a family to support, love and care for them. To learn more about this group of older youth please visit the Waiting Children section, and use the Search Kids tool and search by age range 17 to 21.
