Pathways is an 18-36 month housing program offering a full spectrum of support and opportunities for former foster and probation youth including housing, educational mentoring and assistance, career/vocational counseling and development, life skills training, health education and mental health services, and alumni services, all aimed at increasing youth’s self-sufficiency.
Get an Apartment. Find a Job. Build Relationships.
Graduate High School. Go to College. Get a Degree.
We’ve created an 11-year education support continuum that follows foster youth from the seventh grade through the completion of a Bachelor’s Degree. Our College Readiness and College Sponsorship Programs work harmoniously to create this pipeline for success.
College Readiness provides academic preparation and other forms of support over a six-year period to help students in grades 7-12 graduate from high school and go on to college. College Sponsorship provides students with financial and emotional support to attend and graduate from four-year colleges.

“Since joining the College Readiness Program in the 7th grade, UFC has been like a second family and has always been there for me. My life with UFC has changed me completely. I learned who I am, what I want to become, and how I can get there.”
