Pathfinder, a community re-integration program

Pathfinder Program Details

Our team works with each client to increase self-determination and independence through a focus on translating insight into action amid real-life experiences. It’s a person-centered approach that keeps everyone involved in the participant’s care focused and motivated to achieve goals and move toward an individualized concept of “a life worth living.”
