Charity: Pathways to Independence

Contact: 562.493.5899   //   info.chartreuse@verizon.net

In 1997, Pathways to Independence was struggling financially, and ready to close it’s doors. Along came a small group of can-do women who formed “Friends of Pathways” (FOP) to raise money for Pathways to Independence (PTI). We started with a bang, hosting a progressive dinner party in Park Estates in October of 1997. The generosity of that first group of guests enabled 12 students to begin their journey on the path to Independence. We have grown from a gathering of a handful of Friends to a committee of over 40; with over 500 guests in attendance each year. 2013 was a banner year for our Fundraising event – over $450,000 was raised at our “Oktoberfest in the Park”event. Our Friends of Pathways committee remains strong, however we are always looking for new friends to join our group. In addition to the joy of “giving back”, we also benefit from enduring friendships formed while working alongside other women who are equally committed and big hearted. We welcome any questions you may have and look forward to having you as a friend.
