If you were to look back, I am certain that you can think of someone special in your life that had an influence on your success. Be that from something they said to you, a deed or simply just by being an example for you, that person left an indelible mark on your life. Often times that person doesn’t even know, and may never know how much they’ve influenced you. Nevertheless, they changed your life for the better and helped you to change your thinking which would then lead to you changing your life.
At On The Path, we relish the opportunity to be “that person” to a child deemed at-risk who has been entrusted to our care. While a participant in our program, the child and family have the opportunity to develop a relationship with an On The Path staff person. It is this relationship that brings about the influence needed to de-escalate a crisis situation, achieve academic goals and/or support the child in learning to adhere to the rules and limits of the home, school and community settings.
As On The Path prepares to embark on our 26th year in business and beyond, we’re proud of the role we’ve played in the communities we serve. Each new era brings about opportunities to renew our commitment to helping bring about healthy, safe and strong families that meets the needs of their children. We know that with great opportunities come great responsibilities and On The Path embraces this challenge. We commit to serving families with dedication, vigor, and competence, a combination that has distinguished us for over 25 years.
