Why Pathways to Potential

Pathways seeks to improve school attendance and outcomes by working together with families, schools, and communities. Rather than working out of the local MDHHS office, our success coaches are stationed in schools making them more available to families. Being in the community and where families are means that success coaches are able to quickly forge relationshps with students, families, and community partners. Through these connections, success coaches, community school coordinators, and schools have seen an increase in parental and community involvement. Lastly, Pathways seeks to build sustainable support networks for schools and families. Recognizing that the most meaningful support comes from our "neighbors," we reach out to local businesses, faith-based organizations, and other members of the community to help build a thriving and self-supporting network around families and schools.
