Professional Dimensions is proud to support Pathfinders' New Paths program as our 2017-2019 Charitable Fund Project
The mission of Pathfinders is "Empowering Youth, Changing Lives". For almost 50 years, Pathfinders has been bringing safety, hope and healing to low-income youth and young adults dealing with homelessness, sex trafficking, sexual abuse, family problems, and mental health issues. Pathfinders’ innovative and highly effective services reach more than 6,000 young people and their families each year. It is the only organization uniquely positioned to reach runaway and homeless youth who have experienced family conflict or rejection.
The Pathfinders New Paths Program is an emerging, multi-disciplinary and cross-community initiative to raise awareness of sexual exploitation and trafficking, and enhance the ability of the Milwaukee community to help those who have been victimized.
