The Positive Pathways workshops incorporate the idea that by addressing certain issues and building certain skills, participants are in a more stable position to actively participate in the community and increase the opportunity for sustainable outcomes. The services provided by Positive Pathways assist in prevention and recovery through preparation for further education, training and employment factors in obtaining financial security and independence. Particularly for the women who have experienced family and domestic violence and have been socially isolated, we provide a non-threatening environment with people who have had similar experiences. A majority of the women are inspired by each other, what they have survived, overcome and achieved.
The sessions often include guest speakers, referral opportunities and complimentary services and we partnered with other service providers to deliver the programs. It is incredibly rewarding seeing the internal and external transformations of the women, the ongoing participation and pathway to higher education and employment.
