EMPOWERING YOUTH IN CRISIS TO MAKE POSITIVE LIFE CHOICES.

For many young people, maps to guide them to a successful future are often difficult to find. Choosing the right path is a challenge. Wrong turns happen. Detours are not uncommon.

For youth confronted by crisis and trauma, it can seem like no one cares and that there are few role models to show them the way. At Pathfinders, we empower youth and young adults by providing them with emotional support, resources for basic needs, and tangible tools for a fresh start. Our team of 90 employees and 200 volunteers work together to reassure them that they matter, so that they can change the direction of their lives.

We understand that real change, especially for youth in crisis, starts from within.
