The Pathfinder Network and COVID-19

A Message to our Community

The Pathfinder Network is taking active measures to protect ourselves and our communities in response to COVID-19. We are following guidelines put forth by the World Health Organization and Oregon Health Authority and meeting daily to discuss how to best support our staff, program participants and community partners during this time.

As of today, all of our offices are closed and staff are working remotely. Our Center for Family Success has suspended all in-person services and classes. Center staff are available to meet the needs of our clients via phone or email. The Oregon Department of Corrections has suspended all visitor and contractor access to all prisons in the state. Our corrections programs will not be running during this time.

Although we are not able to physically hold space, now more than ever we are committed to providing justice system-impacted individuals and families the tools and support they need to be safe. We are working closely with our criminal justice system partners to ensure we can support and advocate for those who are most adversely impacted by this crisis.

Our hope is to find ways to support ourselves, our work and our participants as best we can during this time. Please reach out to with any questions, comments and concerns. Check back here for additional updates and information.

Thank you all for your understanding, commitment, and engagement.


With support and solidarity,

Your friends and partners at The Pathfinder Network
