Ever wondered how a child comes into Pathway’s care? Read on to learn more!

CPS Investigates

Child Protective Services (CPS) plays a crucial role in the process of a child coming into Pathway’s care. When a child is removed from their home due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment, CPS takes action to ensure the child’s safety and well-being. Once CPS determines that placement in a foster home is necessary, they reach out to Pathway through a call or email.

Pathway Gets a Call (or an email)

Pathway serves as a foster care agency that collaborates with County Children Services to provide safe and caring homes for foster children.

Foster Child is placed in a Safe and Caring Home

Each placement is carefully considered and intentional, with the aim of creating a nurturing environment for children in need. Pathway supports and guides foster parents throughout the process, ensuring they receive the necessary training and licensing to open their homes to these children.
