Pathway of Hope
In the summer of 2001 Scott and Sue Gardner started Pathway of Hope out of their own home. Not long after, they were at capacity and arranged for their home to be the official site for the new organization. Pathway of Hope was such a success that the Gardner family had to find a new place to live and let the organization purchase their home. After a few years and hard work from dedicated volunteers and staff, the home can now house 12 girls!
Who Do We Help?
Our programs are designed for troubled girls between the ages of ten and eighteen with serious life-controlling issues. We are committed to helping underachieving and troubled girls live more healthy, productive and satisfying lives. We serve them with love and compassion, using mentoring as a source of strength and accountability.
Faith at Pathway of Hope
We believe in God and we believe in the healing power of Jesus Christ. No matter what her background, church or no church, we will love the girls that come to Pathway of Hope and teach her what it means to have faith, even if that faith is simply in a better life.
Trusting in God is a journey and a big decision that sometimes takes years to work out. Therefore, we do not require our girls to have a suddenly strong faith or adopt our beliefs. But we do teach our girls to appreciate the deep wisdom of the Bible and the countless Christian authors that speak into our hearts.
One thing is for sure; they will know and understand that we do what we do because of our steadfast faith in our almighty Father. It equips us to do what we do. Our faith in God gives us faith in THEM!
How Faith Affects Our Program
- God designed the family as the foundation of society. Therefore, we provide programs that advocate, restore, support, and enhance strong and healthy family relationships.
- Everyone we serve is a precious child of God and as such, will be treated with honor, dignity, and respect.
- We provide a safe, challenging, and rewarding work atmosphere as we feel God wants us to work hard 6 days out of the week.
- God expects us to be good stewards of the resources He has entrusted us with. We require and promote moral excellence and accountability.
- Adventure based experiences are a unique and highly effective treatment tool. We will make use of this to provide opportunities for spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical growth.
