The Andrew Project

The Andrew Project came to us when thinking back to our founder’s story and where the path began. As we seek to create sustainable support for families, we can’t help but think “What happened to Andrew?” and “What about all the other Andrew’s in the world”. 

We acknowledge that every child and family’s story is unique and complex. The Andrew Project’s goal is to provide support to foster families, children in foster care, and families through reunification and preservation support as they experience the life-changing journey that is foster care. 


Through our partnership with Lifesong, we also support those who are preparing for adulthood.

 The Andrew Project is committed to providing financial assistance as foster parents, children in foster care, kinship placements, and those walking through a preservation journey receive trauma-competent counseling and parent coaching on their road to growth and healing.

A pioneering partnership with Lifesong to provide jobs, spiritual training, and stability to aged-out orphans. Pathways has supplied capital for the land for a working farm.

There are over

407,000 children and youth

foster care, and

34 percent

were placed with relatives or kin.
