“Pathways is teaching me how to
live life, and no matter what struggles
you are going through keep climbing
that mountain until you get to the
other side, and never give up until
you get there.”
“Pathways has changed my life
drastically. Not only have I
received an education,
I have had the opportunity to
work on myself inside and
out. I never thought my life
could be this good.”
“Pathways has shown me that
one person really can make a
difference. That all it takes is
love, hope, faith, and trust.”
