Mission Statement

Pathway Caring for Children's mission is to help children and families realize the possibilities of their lives through foster care, adoption, and mental health.


Jim and Velma Bridges founded Pathway Caring for Children in 1973. We have grown from our humble beginnings as one group home for f our boys to a full-service agency meeting the foster care, adoption, and mental health needs of over 1000 children and their families. In 2023, Pathway is celebrating a half-century of serving vulnerable children and families in Northeast Ohio. Our anniversary theme is "Here’s to 50 More" as we look to the future to continue to provide vital services in our community.

Stay away from Pathway (Not Caring For Children). They didn't and don't honor Jim bridges's Motto. If you are looking to foster or adopt there are other agencies out there. Trust me, I know Pathway personally. They were not there for me when I needed them the most. Because of this so called NONE PROFIT AGENCY I now suffer with PTSD, OCD, AGORAPHOBIA, DISSOCIATE IDENTITY DISORDER. Thank you Pathway for ruining my life. Because of you I can't work and I can no longer coexist with other people. Please look else where to volunteer at.
