Residential Care

Residential care is a type of out-of-home placement offering a higher level of structure and supervision than that provided in a foster or kinship home. Pathways has two specialized residential programs both supporting psychiatric services, social workers, licensed professional counselors, qualified mental health professionals, and licensed childcare administrators. Hab Homes serves children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 3H Youth Ranch provides short-term adventure programming for boys ages 11-17.
