• our mission & Vision

    Mission: Partnering to meet life's needs through Christ.

    Vision: New Path, as radical servants of Christ, invests in meeting needs, transforming lives and restoring community through collaboration and wise stewardship.

    Our Covenant With You...

    Our supporters, servants and clients are a very important part of the relationships we have developed at New Path.

    As part of our renewed commitment, we have developed a covenant agreement with our supporters, servants and our clients. It is through this agreement that everyone who interacts with our organization and can understand the guiding principles that we operate under to help bring stability to people and transformation to our communities.

    Strategic Partnerships

    Reaching out farther and wider

    We actively seek strategic partnerships with other nonprofits in the communities we work with to increase opportunities to share resources and not duplicate services already provided in the community.

    Servant Trainings

    Equipping the saints with knowledge and safety

    Because resources are many and some come with restrictions, food pantry servants are required to take a civil rights training each year. See your supervisor for the next training date.

    When storing or preparing food a "Servsafe" training is required, so if you're serving by preparing food or stocking cold or frozen foods see your supervisor for the next training date.
