Pathways is a community-based organization specializing in foster care, adoption, residential care, and behavioral health services.Pathways contracts with the Department of Family & Protective Services (DFPS) and regional Single Source Continuum Contractors (SSCCs) to provide safe, nurturing foster homes for children navigating the foster care system.
Pathways licenses foster homes for children ages 0-17 and supports extended foster care for youth up to age 21. We provide extensive training and support to ensure foster families are ready and able to handle a range of situations. Fostering requires a high level of dedication, a willingness to work with our team, and a commitment to support a child on a daily basis when issues arise. The reward of helping a child is worth the work!

The safety and well-being of our children is of utmost importance, and our primary goal is to foster healing and growth in children placed in our care while working collaboratively to find the best, permanent home for the child.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Adults who are new to the fostering process sometimes feel overwhelmed and wonder if they will have support on their journey. Your child-placing agency is the first resource. Social services caseworkers provide aspiring foster parents with various types of support and connections. These include free educational training programs, helplines, and support groups.

It is important that foster parents build their individual support network, too. Connecting with other foster families with more experience is an excellent place to begin. Texas groups offer foster parent meetups; you can search online for the closest one.

The Texas Foster Family Association provides state training, a regional directory of support services, a summer training conference, and more. Membership benefits include getting access to foster care professionals and learning more about ways to become better caregivers. Children of TFFA members can also get assistance through the Scholarship Fund.

Austin Angels is another support organization that strives to assist foster parents and Texas foster children. They offer care packages and gifts for foster children and their caregivers, mentorship options, and education, among other resources. Foster children and teens can learn valuable skills that help prepare them for independent living, as well.
