Welcome to PathWays' Residential Program
With our 24-hour care and supportive living arrangements, individuals are encouraged to live an active and fulfilling life, and to constantly explore new interests.
Supporting Individuals With IDD and/or Autism
In 1962, a group of parents and professionals formed a service committee in Washington County that went on to become United Cerebral Palsy of Southwestern Pennsylvania, and later, PathWays. We opened our first residential home for eight individuals in 1975.
From there, we continued to grow. In 1995, federal and state funding supported the Deinstitutionalization Movement, which aimed to move IDD patients from institutions into private homes. PathWays received HUD Grants to open multiple homes in 1999, 2002, and 2007 – partnering with Action Housing on two of the three grants. Our program is constantly growing, and today we have 11 licensed homes in three counties.
