Pathways serves individuals who seek healing for body, mind, heart and spirit. Since 1988, we have made our free holistic services accessible to those living with life-threatening and life-changing health situations, as well as those who identify as caregivers. We believe that healing and curing are different, and that healing is always achievable even when curing is not. Pathways helps individuals with life-threatening and chronic illness (and their caregivers) explore and experience a variety of holistic healing approaches and learn what works best for them.
2023 has proved to be more challenging than ever. To manage our finances, we rolled back our planned "in-person/onsite" services to what we're calling "Virtual Plus". Most of our sessions are provided virtually, with limited on-site services through our partnership with Northwestern Health Sciences University School of Acupuncture. This model is working well - we've been able to provide nearly the same level of services, and we've been adding new participants. In looking to build for the future, we gathered many insights from our participants, providers, funders and others in the integrative care world. What we learned is that Pathways is highly regarded as a "touchstone for holistic healing;" a warm, compassionate and safe community for our participants and our providers. While we have more work to do extend our services and impact, we are more committed than ever to ensuring that Pathways' spirit and impact continue to benefit our community.
