Pathways to Permanency


Pathways to Permanency

Stanford Sierra Youth & Families believes each and every child deserves the love, safety, and unconditional commitment of a family and the opportunity to develop as a healthy and productive young adult. The Pathways to Permanency Program supports this goal and provides several paths to permanency to ensure every child/youth has a lifelong connection to family and the opportunity to thrive.
