PathWays of Southwestern Pennsylvania Empowers People to Reach Their Full Potential

At PathWays of Southwestern Pennsylvania, for more than 50 years we have been committed to overcoming obstacles and seeing those we care for achieve more than they ever imagined. Through innovative programs, lifelong services, and individual attention, we empower people of all ages and abilities to reach their full potential.

Our programs serve all ages and all stages of people in our community. We believe that everyone has aspirations and the potential to make them realities. But for children with complex medical issues, families in need of caring support, and adults with intellectual disabilities or autism, achieving those goals presents an array of challenges. That’s where PathWays helps.

To respond to those challenges, we offer programs and resources to unlock potential, celebrate ability, defy obstacles, overcome odds and embrace the exceptional. This is our way. Each year we serve more than 1,600 children, adults and families in Allegheny, Fayette, Greene, Lawrence, Washington and Westmoreland Counties, and meet them where they are in their journeys to self-fulfillment. Our programs include:

  • Your Child’s Place – a specialized, pediatric child-care center for children that need skilled nursing care. Staffed by registered nurses and childcare professionals. At Your Child’s Place children benefit from decreased hospitalizations, faster rehabilitation times, and reduced isolation. Prescribed therapies and instructional needs are facilitated by our staff. We are equipped to handle any medical emergency that may arise.
  • Adult Training Facility – a day program that helps people with intellectual disabilities and autism contribute their talents to the community and enhance social, physical, and emotional needs, as well as provide life skills training. This program emphasizes individualized teaching and training, so that every individual can lead a successful life and connect to their community in meaningful ways.
  • Residential Program – provides a home for adults with intellectual and development disabilities to live their most fulfilling life. We provide multiple services which include intensive 24-hour care living arrangements, supported living arrangements, and respite services. Our program encourages individuals to live an active and fulfilling life, and to explore new and interesting activities every day.
  • Early Intervention – a program that helps children with developmental delays reach their true potential. Highly specialized and individual therapies enhance each child’s learning and growing.
  • Agency With Choice – provides in home & community supports including health maintenance, decision making, home management, supported employment, and more.
  • Rainbow’s End Learning Center – full-service day-care centers for children of all abilities, that provide opportunities for educational and social learning and growth.

No matter what the program, we recognize potential, celebrate milestones, and exude hope for every future. For us, each person is our compass, guided by our team’s recommendations on a path that leads to the ultimate destination — a life that is more fulfilled.
