COVID-19 Response

A Message From Executive Director Andrea Wilson 

April 8, 2021

Dear Friends, 

I am so excited to let you know that after over a year of modified service, PATH will be reopening to our neighbors on Monday April 19th. With COVID-19 vaccination on the rise and cases in East Texas falling every day, our staff, volunteers and I are looking forward to getting back to what we do best: providing the one-on-one support that our neighbors need when they walk through our doors.

Since the pandemic hit East Texas, hundreds of families that have never needed assistance before have come to PATH. All the people involved in this organization over the past 36 years helped cultivate a reputation of kindness and compassion, so that our community knew there was a soft place to land when they were slipping through the cracks. Every single one of those people holds a special place in my heart – due to their hard work, PATH was able to respond to this crisis quickly, effectively, and gracefully. 

If you are able, I hope you can join us on the 19th at 8:00 a.m. for the Grand Re-Opening Celebration. I would love to hear your stories about PATH, the pandemic, and the community you love. All are welcome, because everyone has a place here.

With hope, 

Andrea Wilson
