Please Support PathWays PA as We Support Families and Children

As we close the books on this fiscal year, we are finishing one of most successful years from a services and advocacy standpoint.

While our programs have gained local, statewide, and national recognition, the recession continues to affect our bottom line.

During these economic times, we are asking you to make a small contribution: $33, or $1 for every year of service we have provided to women, children, and families in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Your support will help PathWays PA to provide the high quality services that continued to be recognized nationally for their excellence.
  • In the past year, PathWays PA has again received accreditation from the National Council on Accreditation for our work with children and in child welfare.
  • Our child welfare programs have gained high marks with the Department of Human Services, while our EARN Center has very successfully assisted TANF clients in taking the next step to self-sufficiency.
  • Our Transitional Living Program (TLP) has been recognized by state and national monitors, and our focus on financial literacy helped us earn one of five national grants for similar programs.
  • Our advocacy work continues to grow, with over 250 new people joining our enewsletter list, 300 new followers on Twitter, and, most importantly, a strong focus on earned paid sick days legislation in Philadelphia that will ensure that over 200,000 workers in the city have the ability to earn a minimum amount of sick days to care for themselves and their loved ones.

With your help, we can work together so that all families have the opportunity to reach self-sufficiency. Please make a contribution to PathWays PA today.

Very truly yours,

Carol Goertzel
President/CEO
PathWays PA
