Building community through education is what Pathways is all about!
They make a difference for local families by providing skills to create a career and that pays a living wage… and prepares them for success in the workplace.
More importantly, Pathways creates the community that inspires and connects women with a shared goal of future success.
Integrating into a new community can be extremely difficult for immigrant women. Some of them come from places where they’ve experienced trauma or abuse—places that are hard to forget.
