Meet your Coordinator
Hillary and her husband, Robi, have 4 "original" (biological) children and one "bonus" (adopted) daughter resulting in a 17 year age span. The Haris family has been a foster family since 2008 and has welcomed a variety of ages into their home. After graduating with a degree from Juniata College Hillary received a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Counseling from Radford University in Radford, Virginia. In their spare time they like to hike, play board games and are always up for a road trip. Keystone Alliance birthed out of the Centre County Orphan Care Alliance. God had been stirring a passion to care for the fatherless in the hearts of Christians in Centre County for some time. Out of those stirrings in October 2008, God brought together several local churches to form the Centre County Orphan Care Alliance. After starting in this one county the passion has spread to several other counties in Pennsylvania, growing into Keystone Family Alliance in 2022.
Here are some great resources in Centre County. Contact the Coordinator for more resources!

Centre County Foster Care Program
Centre County Children and Youth Services is the agency within the Centre County government which is responsible for the operations of children and youth programs.
