Intensive Services Foster Care

Serving Those Who Need More Care and Services

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 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.

  • In 2018 CCL announced that it would be closing most Group homes in California and would create a home based program- ISFC.
  • We currently have about a 15-bed program.
  • We are growing this program in 2021 to have at least 20 youth in this program.
  • Drew Langston is our ISFC Program Manager and will expand our ISFC program to include other counties that Pathway is serving in 2021-2022.

God has given each of you special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God's many kinds of blessings. (1 Peter 4:10)

Our Commitment to Our Children & Families

Pathway Family Services demonstrates a deep commitment to the children in foster care in California by training, certifying, and supporting resource families in their efforts to care for abused and neglected children. Pathway Family Services has transformed the lives of hundreds of families by providing mentorship, resources, and on-going education to resource families in hopes of restoring health, hope, and wholeness to these abused, neglected, and at-risk children.

In addition to ongoing support, Pathway Family Services provides numerous enrichment opportunities for foster children and resource families including Holiday celebrations, resource family networking events, and other encouraging celebrations. In joining Pathway Family Services, you are joining a team with one goal in mind – to see each foster child’s destiny changed to impact the future generations to come.

Pathway resource families receive initial training as well as on-going resource family training to maintain the excellence of their care to their foster children. Pathway resource families are connected with a Pathway Social Worker who mentors, guides, and visits the home on a regular basis, keeping resource families informed of rules, regulations, and resources. Pathway on-call Social Workers can be reached by telephone at any time, as needs arise.
