Message From Our CEO

Dear Families and Friends,

As winter approaches, there is a calm at the Village that has not been felt in the past couple of years. What’s old is new again; we are back to life as we know and love at Pathfinder Village - happy faces engaged in their daily activities, TOGETHER with their peers. We couldn’t be happier.

In a recent Pathfinder publication, I shared a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King said, “… All life is interrelated. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly…. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.”

Past events have given us moments to reflect and have provided a reminder that we truly are interconnected. Thankfully, the gifts of community have been a beacon for Pathfinder Village. Kindness and consideration are daily watchwords. We embrace the concept of interrelatedness and commit to be our best selves, knowing that individuals, families, and the community rely on us.

Looking back, I recall that everything was meticulously planned, we counted days, we planned for every circumstance, and we adjusted on the fly, starting and stopping many times. Lessons were learned though! We created new ways of connecting, we cheered each other on, we shared time and resources; we celebrated small successes. We cared.

Looking forward, we are mindful of our social connections and how important our relationships with one another are. Through this notion, we will rise to the challenge to foster solidarity within our community while continuing to support and help one another.

We hope that you will plan a trip soon to our beautiful campus so you can see firsthand what a magical place Pathfinder Village is.

Read Our Strategic Vision
