Listen to Forrest Emerson, the 2023 Pathways Board Chair, announce the addition of four new Board members who bring so much value to grow our mission! This year, the Pathways building will undergo necessary improvements to meet the needs of our service agencies and accessibility for the clients. Phase I of the sprinkler project is almost complete, allowing the Life House Women's Cottage to operate a 25-bed emergency shelter for women. Phase II of the sprinkler installment will begin in late Spring so that Bethel Shelters can utilize the Day Shelter as overflow emergency shelter beds for men. Simultaneously, renovations will start in the auditorium to convert it into a multifunctional space for our service providers to utilize for workforce development, events, conferences/workshops, ministry programs, and more!
Looking back at 2022, it was an eye-opening year as the Nation began to see the impact of a post-COVID World and its effects on the economy, workforce, and housing. 2023 will be a pivotal year for our community as many of us have researched, brainstormed, and begun to implement new strategies to address the gaps within the homeless-serving system.
We need your help to continue making a life-changing impact this year. See how you made a difference by viewing our 2022 Annual Report below!
