Each year around this time, the Butler County Children and Youth Agency reaches out to our community members to help enrich the lives of the children they serve through Adoption Finalization Celebrations and The Christmas Program. Through the continued generosity of our community, these two events exceed expectations every year.

Adoption Finalization Celebrations occur throughout the entire calendar year for deserving children and their forever families. These celebrations occur with the family on the day of their final court hearing to commemorate the occasion. The family is given a customized blanket, a Christmas ornament, and other customized keepsakes. It is the intent of the agency to make this a positive and memorable day for the children. If you would be interested in making a monetary donation please contact Nicole Burdett at 724.284.5156 or nburdett@co.butler.pa.us for more information.

It is also time for the Agency’s annual Christmas Program. This program serves children who are involved with the agency or who are in Foster Care. Through generous donations and sponsors this program helped give a Christmas morning to over 400 children in 2017. There are a variety of ways that you may help with this effort. For more information on the Christmas Program please contact Cathryn Heakins at 724.284.5156 or cheakins@co.butler.pa.us. Thank you for your consideration of supporting either of these efforts.
