Get Involved


Pathway relies on a dedicated group of volunteers who enhance our programs, assist in administrative duties, host donation drives, and mentor Pathway children and teens. Our volunteers offer a special skill set that allows them to relate and empathize with our children, promoting trust and healing.


If you or your group are interested in volunteering, contact Liz Hill: or 330.818.0446.
