It’s hard to believe that it has been thirty-four years since the founding families of Pathway Homes had a dream to provide stable housing and quality support services to individuals with mental illness and co-occurring conditions. Since that modest beginning, Pathway Homes has continued to grow, to innovate, and to evolve to meet ever increasing public need.
As I reflect on this past year, I see a year of growth, accomplishment and recognition. We submitted several grant funding applications and were awarded funds from a variety of local and state agencies that will make it possible for us to continue meeting the needs of individuals in our community. These funds will also help us further the goals of the county’s 10 Yean Plan to End Homelessness. Some of these efforts already paid dividends as we were able to serve even more individuals than we did last year. We continued to partner with public and private providers across the State to engage in advocacy efforts and further promote the agenda for meeting the housing and service needs of the individuals we serve. We expanded our communications strategies and increased our philanthropic outreach efforts through increased use of technology and social media. Amidst all of that, the dedication and excellence of our staff and personnel practices were recognized through community awards and our ranking in 14th place for The NonProfit Times' 50 Best Nonprofits to Work For in the United States!
On behalf of the individuals served, staff, and the Board of Directors, we would like to express our sincere thanks for your support throughout our 34 years of growth, and your continued investment in our community.
