PATH, a leading human services provider in Northeast Philadelphia, is developing PATH@1919 to better address the social determinants of health affecting the children, youth, families, and adults in its programs and the community at large.

A PATH Forward

Meeting the Need

PATH@1919 will meet the evolving needs of Northeast Philadelphia, which is now one of the city’s most diverse communities. A recent Community Needs Assessment ranks Northeast Philadelphia as the area lowest in the entire city for social capital, an indicator of a neighborhood’s capacity to internally address its challenges. With PATH as its anchor, PATH@1919 will deliver key resources to this diverse and growing neighborhood, providing community members with the opportunity to develop important strengths in multiple areas of their lives.

An Integrated Hub

PATH@1919 will be an integrated, multi-service community hub that will meet the community where they are, in Northeast Philadelphia, to help individuals obtain needed resources and services. PATH@1919 will become PATH’s new headquarters, located in a more centralized location, and as a community hub, will house highly-regarded non-profit partners offering complementary services that help individuals lead more independent and fulfilling lives, including economic empowerment, supplementary education, and civil legal aid services.
