Pathways for Children


Community & Civic Organizations

About Us

Pathways' services began in 1967 with the founding of our Head Start preschool classrooms on Cape Ann, and we have continued growing and adapting since that time in order to meet the changing needs of our communities.

With educational programming for children from birth to 13, robust social support services for families throughout Essex County, and professional development initiatives designed to inspire the next generation of teachers and youth/family services workers, Pathways is helping children and families thrive.

Pathways nurtures children and supports families impacted by economic and social inequity through programs that educate, enrich, empower and motivate.
