PATH Inc. was founded in 1972 by a group of committed and innovative foster parents and social workers who saw a need for a more specialized and personal approach to foster care. Pioneering the treatment foster care concept, PATH has built a reputation for quality and leadership in the foster care field.

Treatment foster care is a specialized form of care, designed as an alternative to institutional care such as psychiatric wards, group homes, and residential treatment facilities.

Foster parents and staff at PATH provide a foundation of nurturing and stability, while building a structure of trust and empowerment. We believe that treatment foster care and family based services are a cost effective resource for children and families in crisis.

PATH provides services in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Colorado. Its programs for children and families include:

  • Treatment Foster Care
  • Medical Foster Care
  • Adoption Services
  • Respite Foster Care
  • Family Preservation and In-home Services
  • Education Institute (Foster Parent Education)
