Foster Care & Foster-To-Adopt

NewPath Foster Care has been serving foster children and families since 1990 but began as an Orphanage in 1829.
As the needs of the community have grown over the last several years and the increasing needs of foster children have become apparent as thousands of children in foster care need homes; we understand the importance of offering our foster children & families all the support and guidance they need. Our services provide care for families and children of all ages, with all levels of mental & behavioral health concerns
.

Prepare Your Heart.

Prepare Your Home.

Each foster child and family is paired with a licensed clinician with years of experience and understanding of the special care necessary for foster home success. When there is a special need identified, we can access psychological and special education professionals within the community or through our agency’s continuum of care to provide the required supports to maintain community placements.

Becoming A Foster or Adoptive Parent

NewPath serves children, from birth to age 21, who have been abused or neglected and are in need of a stable home. We have an exceptional network of foster families located in counties across Southwestern Ohio, but many children are still in need of foster families. We offer both therapeutic & traditional foster care. Therapeutic foster care and adoptive homes differ from traditional foster homes because the children may have emotional or behavioral problems. Foster parents receive special training to learn how to help the children heal from their issues. Although this is a challenging task, the reward is great!

Benefits for Foster Parents & Foster-to-Adopt Parents

There are many benefits of becoming a Foster Parent from the indescribable feeling you will have helping a child who needs YOU more than you could ever imagine to the incentives and reimbursements we offer you for your kind and caring heart.
