Pathstone Foundation, is HIRING!

Do you want to be the next member of Pathstone Foundation’s Dream Team?

Are you passionate about mental health, and supporting your community? Our goal is to make a positive impact on thousands of lives each year, and we truly mean that!

As the fundraising arm to Pathstone Mental Health, our mandate is to support programs and services that are not covered through other methods of funding. (e.g. Ministry of Heath)

And it’s not just fundraising. We are also doing great mission, education and prevention work around Children and Youth Mental Health. We are making an impact in the work we are doing and our donors know and feel that.

We don’t mean to brag but, Pathstone Foundation has successfully opened and funded through donors, 9 in-person mental health walk-in clinics across Niagara, bringing mental health care to just about every back yard in the region.

We have funded a Natural Playground and Healing Garden, the first to be built at a children’s mental health facility in Canada. We went on to build another one, that feature learning and play hubs. And the latest, we are opening a NEW SITE in Welland, putting mental health care into every corner of our Region for so many who need us. (See what we mean about BIG IMPACT!)

Now, let’s talk about the gig at Pathstone Foundation.
