Post Adoption Support

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

Counseling and Therapy Grants

Counseling and therapy can be a useful tool to support families, adult adoptees and birth mothers in different phases of their journey. Pathways seeks to provide financial support for those who need adoption-competent and trauma-informed counseling. This may include but is not limited to:

Marriage Counseling Family Counseling Individual Counseling Play Therapy

Conference and Retreat Scholarships

Pathways for Little Feet recognizes how valuable the opportunity to attend a conference and/or retreat can be for a parent, marriage, family, adult adoptee or birth parent to renew, connect, equip or learn. The Conference and Retreat Scholarship program provides financial support for those who are interested in these opportunities.

Conference Scholarships have a maximum award of $1,500 and Retreat Scholarships have a maximum award of $800

Testimonials

“If I could give any adoptive parent advice it would be to find your trauma-informed counselor before you begin the process of adopting, you are going to need them”

“Counseling continues to be the thread that Keeps us going and we will forever be grateful to pathways for a little feet for that! I cannot even begin to explain the progress we have had! Trauma is definitely a journey, but we are finally able to breath and enjoy life so much more as a family! I feel like my other kids have a mom and sister again! We truly are so so grateful!!’

FAQ

  • Research tells us that adoption and the impacts on the individual and family are unique. Pathways understand that most insurance companies do not provide coverage for this type of care which is where Pathways hopes to assist.

If awarded, the counseling and therapy grants are up to $5,000 per application. These are made available through reimbursement or paid directly to the provider.

While Pathways recognizes the immense need for financial support in providing this type of care, at this time Pathways for Little Feet is not able to provide grants for this type of therapy and care. 

Pathways is here to financially support your journey to healing. While we have some counseling centers that we can recommend depending on where you are located, we want you to either continue with your current provider or find a provider that works best for your specific need.

Absolutely! There are many benefits to beginning your counseling journey prior to your child joining your home.
