Pathways to Prosperity
Established in 2009, Pathways to Prosperity is a non-profit organization based in Boynton Beach, FL.
We are dedicated to strengthen communities across Palm Beach County by improving outcomes for children and families through education and social services. It is our mission, through our holistic approach, to have a positive, meaningful and empowering impact in the lives of children, parents and entire families in the communities we serve.
Our goal is to ensure that our families have what they require to not only survive, but thrive. We offer a wide array of parenting and family education programs and social services to give parents the tools that they need to make sure their children grow up healthy, safe and strong.
We offer a range of programs to uplift individuals and families out of economic hardship through education, parenting support, food assistance, healthcare, and other social services. Our programs help hundreds of people every year reach their goals of financial self-sufficiency and independence.
Circles Palm Beach County® is a community-driven solution that addresses the underlying causes of poverty and supports families in a holistic, long-term pathway to economic stability.
This national movement reinforces the belief that every member of the community has gifts and strengths to
share with one another. It offers participants, referred to as Circle Leaders, the opportunity to identify their
own strengths in order to improve their lives and to help build the community around them.
Participants are eligible if their household income is 150 percent or less of the federal poverty guidelines and must reside in Palm Beach County. Successful participants are those who are motivated to become economically stable and are dedicated to the Circles USA model.
Circle Leaders (Participants) are expected to be a part of Circles for a minimum of 12-18 months. Initially participants attend a 18-week training where they establish their goals and future plans and learn new tools to reach economic stability.
Upon class completion, participants are each matched with trained volunteers called Allies. Regular weekly meetings begin where the meetings are centered around Circle Leaders and Allies discussing goals and concerns.
