Community Organizations

About Us

A group of representatives from diverse traditions sat around a table in this community in the mid-nineties to discuss ways to put faith into action through partnerships that are seldom forged.

From this and similar gatherings, the decision was made to ''just do it,'' and pathways to healthy development have continued to be forged through lasting partnerships with congregations, finance and business entities, public agencies, other community-based organizations, and local residents.

As an organization, we continue to celebrate and embrace the gift and richness of diversity, and we are committed to recognizing and responding to the value of the human spirit in every person as we are about the work of Building Lives and Awakening Hope.

Pathways, formerly Petersburg Urban Ministries, was begun in 1995 as an inter-faith community development corporation. It was incorporated in 1997 and received its 501(c)3 status in 1998.
