At this time of giving thanks, we are so grateful for the gifts we
have received throughout the year and for the community support we receive each holiday season.  Thank you! 

As you contemplate your year-end giving, please consider
Pathways for Children
  There are many ways you can help. Here are a few!
Winter Giving Opportunities 2016
Your investment could be a family's lifeline!

A long-time Pathways supporter and much loved friend said she and her husband give to Pathways because they believe it is a good investment.They are investing in children, who otherwise might not have what they need to grow into strong students, good learner, with values that will make them successful in life.

Research shows that for every $1 invested in high-quality early childhood education society saves over $8 in future costs. Children who participate in high-quality early education programs have greater success in school and in life and contribute to our country's continued economic growth.

Creating a productive 21st century workforce requires the investment in children now

We take your investment in Pathways and the children and families we serve very seriously. We know it is our job to guide the children as they grow in our care. Thank goodness for all of you who remind us that we are not alone in this work by your generous donations of volunteering and financial support. It is an inspiration to know the children can count on this community.

We are asking you to join us by investing in the future and supporting the children of Pathways.

Every child deserves to have someone they can count on to teach them and help the grow into strong, resilient students, ready to thrive in school. You can count on us to be there for all of the children in our community.

           Holiday Store 
The spirit of giving can feel magical to many during the  holiday season. For some of our families it is difficult to find the additional resources needed to provide gifts for their children. Each year we look to our community to help keep the magic of the holidays alive by donating new, unwrapped gifts for children and youth to our Holiday Store. We would greatly appreciate your help! Click   here  for a list of local businesses where you can find a donation box from November 21st until December 14th. Click  here  for a list of recommended gifts. Donations can also be made at both our sites:
  • 29 Emerson Avenue, Gloucester
  • 292 Cabot Street, Beverly 
Give the important gift of literacy!
Reading with children is one of the most important gifts we can give.  This holiday season, our goal is to give every child in our programs a new book. As you reflect on your favorite books for children or young adults, please consider sharing it with one of the young people in our programs - donate a new book or click here to make a financial donation to our Holiday Book Drive. Donations can be made at both our sites -
29 Emerson Ave., Gloucester and 292, Cabot St., Beverly.

Honor Someone Special
Giving a gift to Pathways is a wonderful way to honor or pay tribute to someone special in your life. We especially appreciate these types of gifts as they not only benefit the children in our programs, but they are also a unique way to recognize life's special occasions and people, or to celebrate the life of a departed friend or relative.

Sharing our Stories

Together we enrich our communities by inspiring children, guiding adolescents, and strengthening families.  


Here is how a former parent puts it:


" this day I say that

Head Start saved my family. Because it did. When families in crisis can find a place where services are so complete, they will grow and thrive and excel.  

Never doubt that.   

Did Head Start save my life? Well, when you are drowning and someone tosses you a lifeline, I say YES!"
