Transforming Lives
Uplifting Communities

A Pathway to Opportunity

Through our proprietary PATHWAY program, we elevate and integrate services, including job skills, training and support to transform lives and enrich communities.

With PATHWAY, those in need aren’t left to their own devices to navigate a maze of programs and bureaucracies. PATHWAY provides a helping hand, guiding those in need through intervention services, training, educational and aftercare programs—and ultimately connecting them to living-wage employment, part of our end-to-end accountability system.

Community Building
