My association with PathPoint has been a rewarding experience on every level.
Innovation and the willingness to think and work outside of the box, coupled with kindness and compassion is a win-win at every agency throughout the five counties where they serve.

My son, Henry benefitted greatly from participating in PathPoint's Project SEARCH internship program. Not only did he learn marketable, real world job skills in his three rotations in the year-long internship at St. John's hospital, doing so also boosted his self-confidence. I'm not aware of any other training programs such as this where developmentally disabled young adults are fully immersed in a business setting and are taught real-world job skills. A few months after graduating, he landed a job at St. John's Pleasant Valley hospital in Camarillo, as an on-call tech in the Central Supply Dept., and he couldn't be happier!

I have been a Director on PathPoint's board for many years. I have seen the great work they have done for our clients and their families, from the inside. The degree of caring, the focus on the detail as to what it takes to make a program successful, has been impressive.

PathPoint's program leadership team along with their caring staff provide for the best possible development experience possible.

I've been proud to be part of the PathPoint organization. Jeff Dodds

I have served on the board of PathPoint for four years, and in my experience, this is one of the best run organizations around. Everyone in the organization, from staff to management, is incredibly dedicated to helping and advocating for individuals in our communities who are disabled or disadvantaged. I am very proud of the work that PathPoint does, and feel fortunate to be a part of this great organization.

I work with many non-profits in the community and currently serve on the Business Advisory Committee for Project SEARCH/PathPoint Ventura County. I have gotten to see first hand how incredible this organization is by the testimonials given by the students/clients and their parents. The recipients of PathPoint's services seem happier and their lives have genuinely been changed by the service they are being provided. Independence is a big deal and the ultimate goal for adults with disabilities and PathPoint is helping more people achieve this goal.

I joined the Pathpoint Board about two years ago and have been so impressed with the organization. Pathpoint has incredible staff and leaders and are deeply dedicated to helping people with disabilities and disadvantages. This is probably one of the best run non-profits I have worked with. Those who choose to donate and/or assist Pathpoint can rest assured that their time and money is well spent.
