Who We Are

Maple Star is a private non-profit agency. For over 20 years, we have focused on transforming the lives of children, youth and families impacted by trauma. Maple Star is a part of Pathways, one of the largest national providers of outcome-based behavioral and mental health services. Together, we are on a mission to be the preferred provider, employer and community partner, profoundly transforming lives nationwide.

What We Do

Maple Star provides a range of Behavioral and Mental Health services across Oregon, to empower children, youth and families to succeed.  We use data-informed practices to continuously innovate and improve services. All of our services are relational, trauma-informed, and delivered through evidence-informed and evidence-based practices. This relational approach is the most powerful agent of change.

Oregon children are in foster care on any given day.

Children a day need more than regular foster care.


Foster home can make a difference. Yours.

Children are removed from their homes every day due to abuse or neglect by their family or caretakers.
They need a home.

Therapeutic foster care helps youth build key skills they need to be successful in their home and community.
We're here to help.

Oregon has seen up to 9 children/week go without a placement because there aren’t enough homes available.
You've got this.
