A hand UP, not a handout





What is Pathway of Hope?

From our Caseworker:

"Pathway of Hope is a long-term, individualized, client-based program. We meet clients where they are and allow them to set the goals they want to accomplish. Clients meet one-on-one with their case manager and discuss goals they find the most important. They get to set their own standard of success, and not have someone telling them what to do and how to do it, unless they want the help.

Goals can range from small to large, short-term to long-term, and in any area of their life that they are seeking growth. We can focus on budgeting, parenting skills, general life skills, healthy lifestyles, resource connecting and so much more. Our clients are offered motivation, guidance, and encouragement along the way. We are flexible! Goals sometimes change, life is not a static moving machine. Things change, people grow, and therefore so do our goals! We work together as a team to accomplish the goals and achieve self-sufficiency for our clients and leading to a successful "graduation" from the Pathway of Hope program!

Beyond our program, we can connect clients with resources outside of The Salvation Army and grow their resources. We connect clients with job training, legal aid, childcare, health services, and housing opportunities as they continue on their life journey in the future.

Lastly, this program offers a place to grow in faith by creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for clients to ask questions, grow in knowledge, and heal from past wounds. The client sets the expectations, and case managers offer spiritual resources to increase their hope and practical application of their faith in everyday life. Overall, this holistic approach is an opportunity to break the cycle of generational poverty and improve the family's future beyond physical needs.

It changes lives, one goal at a time"

"Taking part in Pathway of Hope has helped me improve my parenting, and helped me move from barely paying bills, to building my own savings account."

How do I qualify?

You must have a child in your care under the age of 18.
Pathway of Hope is focused on breaking families out of the cycle of generational poverty. our goal is that by equipping you to overcome, your children will be inspired to overcome as well

You must be ready to CHANGE
You must be open to change and adjustment. Understanding that "the way you/your family have always done things" isn't helping you accomplish your goals or breakdown barriers.

You must be ready to put in the work
Any kind of change or growth takes a lot of work. We don't exercise expecting it to be easy, we shouldn't expect changing other aspects of our life to be easy either.
As a Pathway of Hope client you will meet regularly with a case worker 1 on 1 to work together towards your goals.
