Pathway Family Services, Inc. is licensed as a child placing agency by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and provides several levels of foster care services.
A child is placed in the state’s care when a court determines the child’s home life is dangerous, inappropriate, unhealthy, or when the child’s behaviors cannot be managed at home. Many children have experienced lives of abuse and/or neglect.
Resource foster parents open their homes and hearts to children who can not live with their parents, providing them with what every child should have…shelter, food, clothing, medical care, and the stability of a caring home. The ultimate goal of Resource Foster Care is to resolve family conflicts or disruptions and return the child to his or her biological family.
If reintegration with the biological family proves impossible, children are often placed for adoption or if an older teen, prepared for adulthood through independent living.
Through the entire process, the Resource Foster parent works closely with the child’s biological family and child welfare professionals to ensure that the child has a chance to blossom as a healthy, well-adjusted member of the community.
