The Pathway of Hope is a strengths-based, long-term approach to helping families leave poverty behind for good. With its design to help hard-working, dedicated families who simply do not have the means to get ahead in life on their own, Pathway of Hope provides the guidance, tools, and assistance necessary to support struggling families along the continuum of growth to self-sufficiency. Pathway of Hope focuses on possibilities rather than problems. We help families identify the skills and assets that they bring to the table before, then collaborate with them to make a plan utilizing those very strengths to improve their situation. Pathway of Hope is about going the distance and walking alongside these families in need so that they can achieve lasting change, both for themselves and their children.

The Food Pantry provides food for those unemployed or who have fallen through the cracks. Last year, we served 39,949 meals and filled over 4,400 grocery bags.
Various services are available to aid our community members in crisis. We assist them in preventing utility shut-offs and provide them with food, clothing, furniture, and holiday assistance (food, clothing, and toys). Through our Citadel, we use volunteers to assist in stocking our pantry, sorting clothing, packing food, and collecting clothing and toys, as well as aiding in distribution.
We also operate a "Diaper Bank" to assist families with little children on a weekly basis. The diapers come from The Diaper Bank, which centralizes the fundraising and distribution of free diapers to poor families through existing service providers, including local food pantries, soup kitchens, daycare centers, social service agencies and shelters. Through its extensive Diaper Distribution Network of 66 agencies, The Diaper Bank provides free diapers to poor and low-income families in New Haven, Bridgeport, Hartford, and Middlesex County. Visit www.thediaperbank.org for more information.
This program offers various music classes for children, including brass instrument instruction, sacred dance, and singing. The program’s age group is seven-years-old and up. Its purpose is not only to improve musical skills, but also social skills. All performance pieces are Christian-based so children can also grow spiritually, as well as mentally. Our staff/volunteers are dedicated to helping children find their musical talents and developing them, encouraging participants to share what makes them unique. Opportunities for public performance and contests are offered so that children can experience personal achievement.
We distributed 4,373 gifts during this past holiday season. With the help and generosity of businesses, schools, social groups, churches, and individuals, we were able to provide happiness to those in need during the holiday season.
