Paths for Families builds and supports healthy lifelong connections for every child and advocates for continuous improvement of systems that strengthen family well-being.
Paths for Families is an adoption and family well-being organization that partners with communities dedicated to the life-long work of building and sustaining families. For over 30 years, we've been here for expectant parents exploring adoption, birth parents, prospective and current adoptive families, children in need of adoption, people who were adopted, and professionals in the community.
Every child will grow and thrive within a caring, supportive family and community.
We understand that each journey is different for everyone. That’s why we always do what’s right, putting the dignity of our clients first in each of our actions. When it comes to building long term, sustainable connections, we know that there aren’t shortcuts to nuanced challenges.
We're here for the long-haul because permanency and well-being is a lifelong journey. We foster partnerships—within families, within communities, and across organizations—to create a multifaceted voice, centering those with lived from combined experiences. These invaluable partnerships support our mission of building healthy, lifelong family connections focused on the well-being of our community.
We make sure everyone is fully embraced throughout the journey. Our commitment to empowering individuals across race, ethnicity, gender, and beyond is core to who we are as an organization. We work to lift oppressive structures and practices that create and maintain disparities in service for peoples who have been systematically excluded or underserved. It’s a set of ever-changing conversations and we’re here to actively take part. Our work is made up of perspectives and experiences that connect us and collectively make us stronger as individuals, families, and a community.
Paths for Families is partnered with organizations throughout the region to build a more resilient, trauma-informed, and permanency-focused community.
With a focus on nurturing positive and restorative experiences, we bring dedicated, technical expertise and trauma-informed, evidence-based practices to the communities we serve. On a systemic level, we share our training with professionals in child welfare and the broader community to build trauma-responsive systems of care.
