Pathway Family Services provides contracted services to resource families who are working directly with county social services as resource parents. These special services provide these families assistance with accessing community services, scheduling appointments and strengthening relationship and communication with assigned county social workers. Our role is to support County Resource Parents with coaching and resources to help them to successfully care for the foster youth placed into their homes.
Many youths are in need of additional support and services beyond the normal therapeutic foster care home. Pathway has established a new and rapidly growing Intensive Services Foster Care (ISFC) program. Resource families are recruited, provided additional specialized training and work closely with their assigned ISFC Pathway social worker to provide the appropriate level of supervision, and to access counseling and other needed services to help the foster youth to achieve success in living as a member of a family unit.
