the best word I ever said...
"I contacted Pathway when I was looking for options for a friend coming out of prison. Carey gave me his undivided attention and I remember thinking ‘I’d love to be a part of that place!’ I now pop in once a week and do odd jobs for them. If I can chip away on something for a couple of hours, it might mean they can spend longer with one of their guys, or pick up another client. It all helps!"

a fresh start with accommodation.
Our retreat in Motukarara helps many families and individuals get back on their feet - providing them a roof over their head, support and a safe place to stay.
It also allows them to get involved and help - giving them new skills and purpose while they stay in our care.
This is the truth about Pathway. It’s what makes us different. It’s what drives us every day. People need to know that someone believes in them, believes they can change and will be there to support them along their journey. That’s us. Join us!
Our Community Unit is a new initiative currently in development. The Community Unit will be run pre-release at the prison and helps to prepare for life outside of prison. It will be run in partnership with the Department of Corrections and in collaboration with other community organisations.
a fresh start and a new outlook.
Our prisoner reintegration program supports men wanting to move away from harmful choices and start over.
Our team of social workers provide a service that gets to the heart of the complex issues that lead to crime and replaces them with strategies for a new life.
The results speak for themselves and we are winning the fight and helping one life at a time make the community a safer place.
a fresh start with a good job.
Our employment program enables people who need a job or simply just new skills to work hard in a great environment.
Our team are exceptional at what they do. Many of our workers have gone on to get great jobs after getting the skills from our work programs.
We also place many released prisoners in work spaces around Canterbury. If you have space available - we have someone willing to work.
Mentoring is an exciting part of the pathway story. Our team of mentors works to provide one on one relational mentoring - and it works! People need people to talk with, share with and get wisdom from, our mentors are the cornerstone of new foundations being built. We are always looking for new mentors to walk alongside a released prisoner needing the encouragement of someone else.
a fresh start with real affordability.
Our affordable housing division is pretty self explanatory. Our goal is simply to help people afford a house and we have a few options to make that happen.
We know that helping people get into a house they can truly call their own, helps a family in many profound ways.
A new location is one way to help initiate a fresh start - we love how this new arm of the pathway group is changing lives and making a difference in the community.
