What Do We Do?
Community Pathways provides an inclusive space with programs focused on the dignity and livlihood of our clients. We help individuals and families in Steele County and the surrounding areas to combat food and clothing insecurity through the Marketplace, Marketplace Delivery and Unique Finds. Each of these programs is designed to mimic the shopping experience of a typical grocery or thrift store. We place heavy importance on our members being able to shop in a safe environment that emphasizes the power of choice. We always want our members to feel welcome and happy to come shopping within our stores.
Community Pathways has been able to make a significant impact in the area with the help of our community partners and very generous donors. Many local businesses, farmers, and individuals donate money, food, clothing, and household goods for our members who come in weekly to shop. We have had over 10,000 individual visits to the Marketplace in just the first few months of 2022.
Community Pathways is also a central location for members to find or access other social services and programs. Our new facility, coming in July of 2022, will hold offices for Let's Smile Inc. and Transitional Housing. Our staff is also well equipped to help you locate other resources and programs for many of life's circumstances.
