OUR OPERATIONAL COMMITMENT
Intake & Referrals:
Our specialists provide essential guidance, helping clients navigate various resources efficiently. They conduct thorough assessments and make real-time referrals to appropriate services, ensuring clients receive the necessary support. By tracking outcomes, we continuously refine our collaboration with providers, benefiting our Continuum of Care agencies and clients seeking self-sufficiency.
Maintenance and Improvements: We offer partner agencies below-market rental space, reducing operational costs and allowing them to focus on client services. Ongoing maintenance and upgrades are required for accessibility and dignity for all in our 98-year-old facility.
24/7 Security 365 Days a Year:
Ensuring safety is a cornerstone of our operations, especially vital as we shelter many clients transitioning from insecure environments.
Network Hub: Fostering Collaboration:
Pathways is a network hub, bringing together different organizations to work towards the common goal of self-sufficiency.
OUR FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP:
Since our inception, the local community's generous donations, grants, materials, and loans have allowed us to invest about $800,000 in improvements, benefiting our agencies and their clients.
Our current operating budget is $875,000.
The Founding and Current Board Members have collectively contributed $492,161, showcasing a 100% giving rate.
Supported by funding from the State of South Carolina, we're carrying out a $1 million project to install fire sprinklers at Pathways, enhancing safety across the facility.
