What we do
The Way Home Adoption provides adoption recruitment and matching services focused on older youth in foster care. We assist youth in care by working on individual cases with a child-centered approach. We collaborate with CPS and traditional Child Placement (adoption) Agencies by including their youth in our program. We support potential parents by giving them the opportunity to know youth so they can make an informed decision about adoption. And we are a service for our community, eliminating the number of children that will age-out and become a startling statistic in our society. When we're asked to explain our work in the simplest way, we say we're a little like a cold case unit and a little like Match.com. We focus on youth that have been in foster care the longest and look to find them permanent homes in a variety of ways.
all that matters
The Way Home Adoption focuses on youth who are lingering in foster care and are at risk of being emancipated with no stable or safe environment. There are more than 11,000 children in Texas, and 1,100 will age out this year. The Way Home Adoption is the only organization in Texas focusing exclusively on these youth.
