Residential Services - Group Homes

At Pathways to Community (PTC), we take great pride in our relationship-centered approach to services and the opportunity to make a difference every day in the lives of the individuals we serve. We understand that the process of transitioning your loved one out of the home and into a new environment can often times be overwhelming. Our intent is to eliminate any uncertainty and stress that may be associated with such a transition and help you focus on this opportunity for growth of your loved one.

We believe that collaboration and communication are essential for any great partnership; we are committed to doing both consistently and effectively. From our first interaction, you will experience the genuine passion that fuels our purpose and ultimately, our services. From discussing your initial questions/concerns to identifying the best opportunity for your son or daughter, you can expect unrivaled support and communication to help you make this important decision. The PTC Intake Coordinator is accessible throughout the entirety of the process to ensure you are informed and confident through each step of this exciting opportunity. This level of accessibility, genuine investment, and commitment to you and your loved one is something that you can expect throughout the lifetime of your partnership with PTC.
