Who is Delta? Delta Community Supports, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit organization that was established in 1977.  President, David Wyher, founded Delta to offer the best lives possible to adults with developmental challenges.  Delta successfully operates 28 residential homes, and a dynamic community center in Bucks County.  Services are provided in Southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

 

What is Family Services? In 1995, Delta created a Family Services division that began offering foster care services to children, youth, and families.  Delta's professional staff and foster parent partners provide required services to children, youth, and their families in court ordered foster care.  Delta's caring, loving, and innovative approach has enabled it to build an excellent reputation and become a model for other agencies.  In addition to general foster care, Delta offers Kinship, Medical, Treatment, and Supervised Independent Living programs.  Delta is also a full service adoption agency providing complete services to its foster parents and others in the community who seek to adopt a child or youth.  Delta primarily serves Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties.

 

What is Foster Care?  Foster parents help children, youth, and teenagers thrive when their own parents, for reasons such as illness, cannot take care of them.  Delta's foster parents actually raise the children, youth, and teenagers, and are responsible for meeting their needs until they can return to their parents, or find a permanent home.  Delta's capable and committed staff is always available to help.

 

What is the application process?  Delta's prospective foster parents participate in a thorough application and training process before children, youth, and teenagers are placed in their homes.  Background checks, a complete application including references, and a home safety check are required.  Delta's training is comprehensive and includes topics, such as CPR, First Aid, and Crisis Management.

 

What are the rewards?  Helping a child, youth, or teenager through a difficult time due to family instability often provides its own rewards.  Many of Delta's foster parents have helped dozens of children, youth, and teenagers  by providing essential mentoring services, thus enabling other parents to succeed while growing personally and professionally.  The value of helping our children, youth, and teenagers reach their potential is immeasurable, yet so necessary to our community.
