WELCOME TO THE WAY HOME

Supporting children in foster care and the families who love them

WHO WE ARE

The Way Home exists to support children in foster care, and the families who love them, through resources, relationships, and support services (training + coaching + counseling). We partner with individuals, organizations, agencies, and corporations to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children and to strengthen and encourage the entire family unit, recognizing the intrinsic value in and prioritizing the health and wholeness of all members of the foster/adoptive constellation (particularly the child + first family + foster/adoptive family).

Volunteers Packing Food

"I could be sitting on the sidelines, in blissful ignorance of the brokenness that surrounds me, enjoying the whole-ness of a sweet and sheltered life, missing out on the beauty of breaking off pieces of my heart and life to make another whole."

Jamie Finn, Foster the Family

RESOURCES

Meeting Tangible Needs

We seek to fill the gaps, when it comes to meeting the tangible needs of foster children and their families. We assist foster families in opening and maintaining their homes, first families in meeting the requirements to prevent removal or to achieve reunification, and foster children with products and services that are not reimbursed by the state or provided by other agencies or organizations.

RELATIONSHIP

Community + Connection

We were created for connection...to be seen, known, cared for, and loved by others. The Way Home seeks to support children, first families, and foster/adoptive families through healthy, nurturing relationships. We know that the foster care journey entails many emotions. Loneliness doesn't have to be one of them.
