Pathways Returns From Building School in Haiti
Pathways went to Haiti from June 26 - July 4, 2016 to build a school. We helped lay the foundation and worked with the villagers daily. Many came out to help both young and old. It was a fabulous experience. The Haitian people, although living in extreme poverty, were some of the most gracious, joyful, and generous people we have ever met! We were able to give them the gift of education and the opportunty to learn to read and educate themselves. They taught us resilence, gratitude, and compassion. We learned so much that changed our lives and perspective. We love you Haiti! For more info and see more photos click here to go to our facebook.

Pathways' Rock Band Performs at Tinton Falls Middle School During an "Include ME!" Assembly
Pathways was invited by Tinton Falls Middle School to share our "Include ME!" assembly with their students and staff. The assembly focuses on helping children to realize the empowerment that comes from diversity. It highlights what children with disabilities "can do" and how changing perception of how we view the word "disability" can open up a world of opportunity for everyone. The Pathways Rock Band came to the assembly to perform. The rock band is made up of children of all abilities and is a true example of the empowerment that comes from diversity. The video below is a part of the rock band performing :the Fight Song." The rock band will be performing at the Pathways' 13th Anniversary Celebration on November 13, 2015. Come join us for a great Beefsteak dinner and a night of inspiration at the Brownstone in Paterson, NJ!
