Bryan Tate, York County Register of Wills & Clerk of Orphans’ Court, announced that the 4th Annual York County National Adoption Day Celebration is being held Friday, November 17, 2023, at 11 AM at the York County Administrative Center.

The 4th annual event will feature keynote speaker Tanya Stauffer, Administrator of the York County Office of Children, Youth and Families. She is responsible for the overall administration of case management services, fiscal operations, and continuous quality improvement efforts of the CYF office. Stauffer’s passion for keeping children safe and providing them with permanency began more than 20 years ago upon beginning her career as an intern at York County CYF. The mission of the York County Office of Children, Youth and Families is to protect children, promote strong families, promote child well-being, and to provide timely permanency for children.
Friday’s program will also extend special recognition to an individual who has made a tremendous impact in York County in the area of adoption. This 2023 honor has become an annual tradition, which began in 2020, paying tribute to members of the York County community who uplift foster care and adoption.
