A Message from NewPath’s Chief Impact Officer

This has been a year of growth, not just for the youth in our services but for our entire organization as well. Thanks to the generosity of our partners and our community, we expanded our reach to serve more youth and families than ever before.

A few key growth points include:

  • The expansion to our new building
  • Investing in our workforce through training, development, and appreciation events
  • Seeing greater engagement amongst the caregivers who are working with our youth day in and day out
  • Growth in the experiences our youth have been able to have through our Experiential Learning program
  • The unwavering support of our supporters allows us to respond when a client has a non-clinical need readily

As we prepare to move into the next fiscal year, we continue to invest in our service lines to ensure we are providing Therapeutic Excellence in Every Interaction.

Supporter Spotlights

Empowering Donor Spotlight – Bill Iles

Bill Iles started working with NewPath by attending a couple of our career fairs and volunteering for mock interviews to help prepare the teens and young adults in our services. He then organized a field trip to Beckman Coulter, his place of work, to help inspire our youth and help them discover a career path they are passionate about. On the tour, Bill emphasized the importance of obtaining a high school diploma. Prior to the tour, he hosted a company-wide golf outing to raise funds, which were then used to gift each NewPath youth a pair of Air Jordan sneakers, gift cards, a hoodie, and socks. Bill also sponsored NewPath‘s Topgolf Outing through Beckman Coulter and continues to look for new ways to stay involved in our mission.

“In all ways, Bill’s dedication to our kiddos grows and grows each year and we are incredibly appreciative of everything!“ – Connie Ring, NewPath‘s Director of Philanthropic Giving

Impactful Corporate Partnerships – Allworth Financial

Allworth Financial has been a dedicated partner of NewPath since 2022. Recently, they donated 432 book bags filled with essential school supplies to support the education ambitions of our enrolled NewPath students. Many of our students wouldn’t otherwise have access to the tools necessary for education.

“Allworth Financial has been a longstanding and generous in-kind donor to the Newpath community. Their contributions have grown steadily by providing much-needed school supplies.“ – Allie Daria, Corporate Partnership Coordinator

Client Story

Finding Solutions for the Family

Ryan* (aged 12) came to NewPath after multiple placements with family, and foster care proved not to be the right fit. He entered children’s services after being removed from his biological parents’ home due to physical abuse and exposure to substance abuse and domestic violence. Ryan struggled with substance abuse, running away, aggression, school suspensions, anxiety, and a suicide attempt. NewPath’s team of therapists, teachers, and social workers saw that he was extremely smart, engaging, helpful, and remorseful for his actions. Together, they were able to establish a foundation of trust and begin work on his healing journey. NewPath identified that the best solution for Ryan was to engage his aunt in family therapy and work toward reunification. He has since moved in with his aunt. They continue to partner with NewPath to monitor his progress.
