Call in to speak with the host
Pathways admits young women who come from poverty and severe abuse. They commit to full-time school, a part-time job, weekly therapy and weekly mentoring. In return we give them a housing stipend, pay for their education beyond financial aid, and provide healthcare, automotive repairs, a licensed therapist and more. In essence we remove any barrier that could impede their ability to graduate. Most importantly, it works. Our girls enter Pathways with little or no self-esteem, and graduate as confident contributing members of society. All of this takes place with over 300 volunteers, including 125 dentists, doctors, optometrists, therapists, and mechanics. In addition, we are grateful for pro-bono legal, accounting, and printing. We only have two part-time employees, who also volunteer, and have never paid anyone to manage Pathways in our 22 year history.
It's good to talk.
