Our roots can be traced back to 1973 when PATH was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation. This came about from the efforts of a group of dedicated community members, many of whom had family members in need of services, which were scarce to non-existent at the time. They worked tirelessly with a group of caring professionals to form PATH and to secure funding in order to provide much needed services to individuals with disabilities in Northeast Philadelphia. This tradition of the involvement of dedicated and compassionate community members continues today through our volunteer Board of Directors. The Board continues to strongly advocate for the needs of the community. Over the years, our community has expanded to include individuals throughout the city of Philadelphia and expanded services to almost 3,800 children, youth, adults, and their families each year. Starting with a staff of 14 in rented office space providing only information and referral services, PATH has significantly expanded its programs in our various Behavioral Health Programs, which include both Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment, as well as in our Intellectual Disabilities programs. With over 500 competent and considerate staff members, we are able to provide a wide array of quality services to meet individuals needs. Our facilities include our main campus at 8220 Castor Avenue, 6 satellite locations, and over 50 homes in the community where we provide residential supports to enable individuals to remain living in the community. We also provide school based services in numerous Philadelphia schools. We have remained true to our mission of helping individuals achieve a more independent and fulfilling life and hope you will join us!
