Rick L. Smith, our Founder and Executive Director started Pathway Family Services in the early Spring of 2006 and was fully licensed to provide Foster Family Agency services on July 19, 2006.
He volunteered his time for six months and initiated the agency with one part-time employee and one contract social worker. Within 18 months, PFS quickly grew to be a team of 9 full-time employees. Over the next 14 years PFS has continued to grow from one office and one program, serving one county to having 5 offices, 6 programs, serving 6 counties (soon to be 7 counties)!
Rick and his leadership team have planned several celebration events this summer for PFS’ resource parents, staff and the PFS Board. There is much to be grateful for and to celebrate!
