One of Pathways' goals is to foster development that leads to the health of both a neighborhood and its residents as well as relationships between persons and their environment. These efforts provide the foundation for all we do.
All people deserve a healthy, decent and efficient home, built for the long-term. Pathways' housing units are EnergyStar and EarthCraft certified, meeting the highest standards of energy efficiency and green construction. All of Pathways' housing units are sold at an affordable price to the families who will live in them - increasing the rate of homeownership and community investment.
Whether in Haiti, the Gulfcoast, or here in Virginia, Pathways will always stand ready to help rebuild homes, neighborhoods, and lives. Pathways staff, program participants, and volunteers put their training and expertise to work when disaster strikes.
Gardens provide us with a place to reconnect with nature, each other, and the food we eat. Pathways meets this community need by engaging residents in transforming vacants lot into vegetable gardens and reclaiming a parking lot for a paradise. Sustainable landscaping practices such as water retention systems, permeable pavers, and native plants insure a lasting impact on the community.
Food is a fundamental need. Pathways addresses food needs in our community through meal provision and acting as a regional distribution center, helping other area non-profits meet their clients' food needs.
The most valuable asset in our community is the people who live here. Pathways provides a myriad of opportunities for service, fostering neighborhood attachment and good citizenship.
