Message from our E.D.
“For over 20 years, Pathways for Children, Youth and Families has been working hard to meet the ever changing needs of York Region. As the Region continues to rapidly grow, and the needs of our communities change, so will Pathways. In April 2011, Pathways launched a 3 year strategic plan that will see the organization serve more people in York Region with the highest possible quality of program. I am privileged to work with a dynamic group of staff and volunteers who are truly making a difference in the lives of children, youth and families in York Region.”
