Founded in 1970, Visions and Pathways is a privately run nonprofit organization that helps abused, neglected, and at-risk youth. They provide kids with housing and services that help them develop life skills, gain educational and career support, and improve their self-esteem. While 90% of their operating expenses are government-funded, the organization relies on fundraising and donations for the remaining 10%.
The majority of their funding is dedicated to their programs, which include but are not limited to:
- Street Smart, a program that aims to identify and help at-risk youth (ages 13-21) by providing them with crisis intervention counseling, human trafficking prevention education, job and housing opportunities, access to shelter, food, and clothing, transportation, and more
- Wellness program, a program that aims to foster an appreciation of the arts and improve the mental and physical health of our youth by giving them access to visual and performing arts as well as fitness programs
- Residential and housing services, which allow youth 13 and older to find housing that meets their educational and/or social needs
- Transitions, a program that aims to help youth navigate and prepare for life after being discharged from a Vision and Pathway program by helping them find and develop community relationships
- Scholarship program, a program that aims to help students in Vision and Pathway programs cover college expenses (i.e. housing, books, travel costs, summer school tuition, etc.)
This quarter, Kevin McHugh (our owner) had the honor of presenting a donation check to Visions and Pathways trustees Emily Benadon, Laurie Pellegrino, and Director of Administration Zoila Gonzalez. Congratulations to Visions and Pathways and thank you for all of the amazing work you all do. We also want to thank our community and voters who nominated and supported this nonprofit.
