IDS Dallas/Ft. Worth Chapter Raises $25,000 for Pathways Project
Did you know there are over 10,000 children ages 0 – 17 in protective custody in the DFW Region alone? Pathways opened its first Child Placing Agency and today operates 15 Banch Offices combining both Foster Care and Mosaic, a behavioral Health program. Pathways is serving approximately 500 children in the Foster Care Programs in Texas.
The Dallas/Ft. Worth Chapter of IDS redesigned every office and main area. Here are the before pictures:
And here are the after pictures!
What a remarkable day we all just had in celebrating the completion of the Pathways . My heart is so full to have seen how a group of dedicated industry people can pull together and design a space that is functional, fun, practical and a wonderful place for Foster Families to come in and train in a beautiful facility. Thank you Jody Clarke and Sarah Marek for bringing this opportunity to IDS last year and to get the ball rolling. IDS raised a total of $25,000 for Pathways and was able to completely re-do every office and main area. WOW! Thank you Nicole Arnold and Barbara Gilbert, both past presidents of IDS and Lori Withey, incoming president, for pulling this all together. Please take a moment to see some of the before and after pictures and be proud of your incredibly faithful and kind members. You blessed a legacy of children more than you know.
Linda Baker, President of IDS DFW
