The Pathway Home

What is The Pathway Home?

The Pathway Home is a voluntary, comprehensive, individualized mental health program for adolescents from 13 to 18 years old. Its mission is to create a loving and supportive community environment where Alaska Native children can develop into independent, service-minded, and productive leaders. Referrals come from a variety of sources, including clinicians, case managers, social workers, counselors, parents, teens, or representatives of the state.

Once in the program, The Pathway Home team of clinicians and employees assist youth improve their mental and behavioral health, physical and spiritual wellness, and academic and/or vocational skills.

Through a combination of individual, group, and educational therapy, youth learn healthier methods of managing behavior, handling conflict and anger, progressing in recovery, and improving relationships with family members.

The Pathway Home provides a safe, comfortable, and nurturing environment for adolescent youth. We place emphasis on building and maintaining healthy, positive, and supportive relationships. We support customer-owners and families working through challenges and developing new skills that provide autonomy, preserve values and culture, and provide healthy alternatives to navigate life’s challenges.
