Churches of Christ in Queensland is a group of mainstream Christian churches and divisional services which have provided a range of care and support services for the Queensland community for over 125 years. Churches of Christ in Queensland operates a range of services through Churches of Christ Care, including early childhood services, child protection, affordable housing, retirement living, community services and aged care programs.
Churches of Christ Care is a division of the Churches of Christ that through their Pathways program provide a range of services for children and young people under the care of, or at risk of being taken into the care of, the Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services. Pathways began in 1970.
Services include foster care, intensive foster care, residential care, semi-independent living and assessment and intervention.
Pathways provides fully-supervised residential accommodation for young people aged 12 to 17 years old who, for various reasons, can no longer live at home.
The service is funded by the Queensland Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.
