Pathways to Progress

We Take a Personal Approach

Pathways to Progress strives to strengthen communities by creating individualized pathways that help families break the cycle of poverty so they can live safer, more productive and sustainable lives. The Pathways approach includes educating and empowering families to make effective decisions that positively impact their future.

Pathways was launched in 2016 as a Catholic Charities of St. Louis initiative. St. Francis Community Services, one of eight Catholic Charities agencies, provides one-on-one, personalized case management for each Pathways family.

We Take a Long-Term Approach

Pathways to Progress offers members long-term, intensive case management that provides a variety of support and resources. Areas may include: employment training and retention; financial literacy; life skills; health/mental health; legal assistance; and direct connection to other community resources. This is accomplished by working one-on-one with a member advisor for two to four years, creating and fulfilling a personalized plan to enhance individual strengths, develop skills, and build financial assets. The end goal? Empowering families to achieve stability and long-term economic independence. In addition to providing hope for people who are poor and vulnerable, Catholic Charities and its agencies advocate for systemic and progressive change.

We Take a Collaborative Approach

Our relationship with Core Community Partners provides efficient access to additional resources for Pathways to Progress members. Along with Catholic Charities’ own eight agencies, Pathways partners with the fine organizations listed below. Additionally, a volunteer Community Advisory Council provides feedback and expertise.
