Brenda Dawson is CEO of Pathways PA Center for families, an rganization that our club has supported for a number of years. The general goal of the organization is to break the cycle of poverty through education.

There are currently approximately 50 families living at the center (located in Wawa, near Media), all referred by the city of Philadelphia human services program. These families consist of mothers with children.

A number of services are provided for the people staying there, including clothing, food, education, lessons in personal care for mothers, financial education, income tax preparation, career counseling, payments to school districts for such things as school trips, summer camp at the local Y, and others. Length of stay depends on the availability of housing for the families, and sometimes can stretch into months

Pathways has two other smaller shelters, one for homeless young women aged 18-22 and one for runaway teenage women.

Our Club has provided support for mothers taking the GED examination, and we have attempted to provide Christmas presents for a number of families each year.
