About Us

Pathways is a private, non-profit agency that provides services for adults who suffer from severe and prolonged mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression. Programs include safe, affordable housing with varying levels of support, case management, and rehabilitation services.

Our staff consists of a dedicated group of professionals and paraprofessionals, providing individualized care and attention, enabling each client to focus on personal strengths while learning and refining community living skills. Service plans are flexible and reflect a client’s goals, ability, and current level of functioning. Short term, transitional, and long-term support are available, depending on need.

Clients receive psychiatric care at local mental health clinics. Pathways’ staff works closely with psychiatrists and other members of the clinical team to ensure clients follow through with all treatment recommendations. Medication monitoring, psychoeducation, and crisis intervention are provided by Pathways to support clients’ efforts to manage their mental illness and live safely and productively in their home community.

Funding for Pathways is provided by the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, the CT Dept. of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the United Way of Greenwich, and corporate and private donors. An active Board of Directors, comprised of community volunteers and relatives of mentally ill adults, establishes and maintains high standards for the quality of care and service provided.

Your unrestricted donation to Pathways will keep our services available for years to come.
Pathways residences and programs have helped hundreds of individuals cope with the trauma of long-term mental illness and they depend upon the generosity of supporters like you.

Testimonials

I am inspired every day that I come to work – what a joy! Each day, I am in the company of people who have endured years – if not decades – of life’s obstacles, and yet persevere. I watch compassionate, professional staff dedicated to our community. And volunteers and Board of Trustees committed to our mission. As an organization, we are moved to honor the people we serve by providing purpose, home, health and community. All around us, we see stigmas breaking, illness becoming wellness, and no shortage of people coming together to help one another.

I have been exposed to chronic mental illness most of my life and when my wife’s sister who is also chronically ill joined Pathways I experienced first hand the remarkable job the organization does for loved ones in providing critical care and a loving environment. As I have become more involved with the organization and joined the board, I came to recognize how often people with mental illness are forgotten and how appreciative they are when someone is willing to listen and lend a hand. What they don’t appreciate is how they have also enriched my life

I was inspired by the enormous need that we discovered from the many frustrating years of trying to find help for our son living with mental illness. Out of that nightmare, I was moved to create Pathways – a place where our son could receive care, grow, and find a home.
