As we spring forward into April, March ended with smiles blooming on several children's faces, thanks to a generous donation of Easter bags from Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish ACTS community & friends, and mentor Dori Davis.

April is Volunteer Appreciation month and we want to say THANK YOU to all our amazing volunteers! Join us for lunch on April 14th in honor of all that you do for the families and individuals in our community.

Thanks to our partnership with Cowtown Bowling Palace, our mentees are able to attend a monthly event in which they have the opportunity to meet Family Pathfinders Mentors and enjoy an evening of fun and camaraderie.

Please remember to check out our upcoming events and share some  valuable resources with your mentees and coaching clients.

   Thank you Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish ACTS community and friends, for making this Easter a little more special for several families! The smiles and thank yous were abundant and express how much your kindness and the amazing Easter bags were appreciated by all the families and everyone at Family Pathfinders.
Thank You!

How the Gender Wage Gap Impacts Women, Men, Children and Families
Tue, Apr 19, 2016 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Women earn only 79 cents for every dollar earned by a man and minority women earn even less. Families rely on women's earnings, but closing the gender wage gap has stalled. Join us to explore the facts and figures behind the gender wage gap and how public policies - especially in training and education - can help to increase women's earnings, lift families out of poverty, and close the gender wage gap.
