What a great month October was! Thank you JP Morgan Chase and The Financial Clinic for making Change Machine available to our agency! We celebrated three of our mentees who successfully completed the Insensitive Day Treatment program and our recognition as a Blue Zone participating organization.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Family Pathfinders is thankful for all our amazing volunteers! It is a rare nonprofit that is completely driven by volunteers. Without volunteer Mentors, Financial Coaches and Board Members our programs would not be as successful as they are. Thank you for donating your experience and your time. 

The Family Pathfinders office will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27 for Thanksgiving and will reopen on Monday, November 30. 

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

We hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
