Our Purpose

Pathways reduces financial barriers for adoptive families to help bring children home and provides support along the journey.

Pathways for Little Feet was founded on the principles of James 1:27. 

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.”

Our Impact

Over 650 children have received support from Pathways for Little Feet in their adoption journey

OUR Programs


Pathways’ interest-free loan program provides up to $10,000 in adoption financial assistance.


Pathways understand that the journey does not end when a child is placed in your home, this is only the beginning.


The Andrew Project came to us when thinking back to our founder's story and where the path began
