Message from our Director of Programs
Having worked with Pathways in several different capacities over the years, and as an ambassador of the mission for longer still, I’m excited to return to Pathways in the role of Director of Programs. I’m proud of the dynamic, innovative and vital programs provided throughout the Region by dedicated Pathways staff and volunteers. I am also extremely grateful to our community partners and funders who are as passionate about our community as we are.
Pathways programs are adaptable and holistic. We deliver innovative programs and services that meet clients where they are at. Getting youth off the streets and providing families with the supports they need, is what makes this job so rewarding. When I think about some of the amazing and resilient people we work with here at Pathways I am truly inspired.
Bonnie Harkness, Director of Programs:

She brings to the team her extensive experience, as well as a passion and committment to helping children, youth and families in our community.
