Foster Friday - Special Dedication to our Foster Parents

Introducing Crystal and LIz Detwiler

Crystal and Liz Detwiler have an unquestionable motivation to provide high quality care to children in need.  They became licensed on 9/27/16 and within days accepted one of the most challenging children. As if that wasn’t a victory alone, the child remains in the home and is thriving.  Their willingness to welcome children despite challenges that would prove overwhelming to others has become their trademark. In fact, since their first placement, they have accepted two additional children who previously had been unable to enjoy the normalcy of a stable placement.

The family’s experience in the medical field and expertise with Autism has become a valued asset for children in their care and for the agency. Their willing, can-do attitude has not gone unnoticed; they have the most positive spirit and their excitement and positivity has had a meaningful impact on every child in their home. Although they are not for fanfare and publicity, we are thrilled they have permitted us to acknowledge them here.

CNSWFL and GCJFCS are so grateful for the Detwilers, who are truly phenomenal people and wonderful foster parents.  Thank you Crystal and Liz.
