Pathway Village May 22

Pathway Village

We are currently building a village of cottages to meet the needs of homeless families in our area. These cottages will allow us to take families, mothers with more than 3 children, men with children, and mothers with teenage boys. The village will also have a Hub Building that serves as a central dining facility and activity center for the families.

We would greatly appreciate your prayer support as we build the village and implement plans to meet the needs of all these families.

Basic Work Skills Programs

We offer five different basic work skills programs for our clients. Our on-campus programs helps clients learn work skills, coping skills and gain valuable experience in Production, Retail, Food Service, Management and Office environments.

Clients that successfully participate in our on-campus programs become eligible to enroll in the Ready to Work Program at Piedmont Technical College. Clients graduating from the Ready to Work Program earn a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, OSHA Training Certification, and a Forklift Operator Certification.

Clients who complete both phases of the program are typically hired within ten days for higher paying jobs that allow them to afford local housing and earn enough to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
