Programs & Services

There is no such thing as a typical day at Pathways. From each individual’s unique program to the varied activities and community initiatives participants take part in, no two days are the same. All participants are expected to give back to the community, whether it’s volunteering at animal rescue centres, working at local thrift stores, adopting parks and roadways or through paid employment.

Pathways also works to involve our participants on a global scale, in order to encourage their awareness and make a difference in the lives of others living with challenges in developing countries. In 2013 and 2016, our participants were involved in planning and fundraising to travel as a team to Romania. They were able to speak about their experiences living with a disability to others, developed long-lasting relationships and hoped to inspire change within the city of Hundedoara, Romania.

“Karli loves to be able to volunteer, and the feeling it gives her to know that she is giving back

to the community. She loves having somewhere to be with her friends, to make meaningful connections and where she has a sense of belonging.”
