Path United

HQ Lawrenceville, GA All Locations

Path United provides a trusted, steady support system for low-income families — primarily first- and second-generation Latino immigrants — living in mobile home developments. Path United staff and volunteers have a consistent presence in the parks’ on-property community centers, teaching, mentoring, and building strong ties with those who often feel excluded from society. In turn, the residents have a go-to resource for any needed assistance, students do better in school, high school graduation rates increase, and a path out of poverty is paved.
