Are you trying to set a goal, but need some help?
- Are you out of work, working below your potential or want to get an education?
- Do you earn less than you need to live?
- Are there roadblocks keeping you from getting ahead?
Our Pathways program* helps you make and achieve goals. Some people want to get a job, other want to get an education. Some have other goals. People can be enrolled in this free program for as long as it takes to become self-sufficient!
(*also called Self-Sufficiency, Case Management, Family Development)
The Pathways program helps you achieve stability. We work with you over time, rather than just with immediate issues.
Our goal is to help you recognize your strengths and build upon them. Together, we work on reaching your goals at your own pace.

- overcome the roadblocks between you and your goal
