The Success Club at Pathways, or as referred to by Pathways clients as “the Club”, Pathways’ Day Program, connects our clients with the world around them through a variety of programs designed to build confidence, competencies, connections and engagement. The Club is a meaningful day program, full of activities and skill development for residential and community clients requiring additional care and supports. Physical fitness programs such as yoga and exercise programs are offered, ensuring proper health and physical wellness. Educational programs like Master Minds, Community Connections, the Fellowship Program, horticultural experiences, writing programs and music practice are also offered. See our Activities Calendar below to see our daily schedule at the Club.
Our trained staff provides support and education for activities of daily living and a wide array of options to keep clients engaged and active. See The Success Club at Pathways Pamphlet to learn all about the Programs offered at the Club.
Every client is recognized for the unique individual that they are and as such activities are tailored to the individual as possible. Volunteers are integrated within the program as needed to expand the breadth of programming we can offer. One-on-one support, the most productive and meaningful strategy, would be limited without a volunteer team. (See Volunteering for more info.)
MASTER MIND PROGRAM:
The Master Mind program emphasizes individualized training done in group settings and combines techniques developed in both neuropsychological and educational models to target neuropsychological deficits as they affect information processing and cognition. The program improves cognition such as attention, processing speed, and problem-solving by incorporating developed activities that work to help stimulate specific skills that support treatment for schizophrenia, depression, ADHD and psychotic disorders.
COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS PROGRAM:
Pathways knows that meaningful work and participation in the community are essential to living a joyful, meaningful life. Although our clients have remarkable challenges, with some support and guidance, they can still contribute to the community. In addition, through the Community Connections Program, client’s are encouraged and aided to take part of community activities, such as attending faith service of their choice.
The Community Connections Program creates meaning and purpose for our clients, allows them to use their talents and allows them to contribute to our community through volunteering, working, engaging in a social club, or participating in cultural activities. Clients receive support in setting goals and practicing social skills, and each client drives the connection.
The Community Connections Program helps our client achieve their goals of being employed, allows them to use their talents and connects them with the community around them.
In addition, recognizing that engagement occurs every time we interact with the world around us, the Fellowship Club sponsors regular field trips to local museums, parks, libraries, and ball parks. Fairfield County has a wealth of options including the Blue Fish in Bridgeport, the Maritime Center in Norwalk, Green Audubon, Tod’s Point, and Bruce Museum among many others. Our central location in Cos Cob enables most of our clients to access the parks, library and shops nearby.
PATHWAYS MAIL SERVICE:
Considered a ‘social cooperative’ (based on the Fountain House model in NYC), our Mail Service employs roughly 15 clients who market their business to the community, participate with staff members in finding new contracts, and execute the mailing job including delivery to the post office. They also file monthly reports documenting the status of the operation. For more information or if you have a bulk mailing job we might handle, please contact Marie Michel at (203) 869-0378.
