Pathways of Hope

Pathways of Hope

  • PATHWAYS OF HOPE (formerly known as 'Fullerton Interfaith Emergency Services'-FIES) is a cooperative community organization established in 1975 by the Fullerton Interfaith Ministerial Association (FIMA). The purpose of PATHWAYS has always been to provide emergency food, transitional housing, and other support services to the hungry and homeless in our community.

    In 1987, POH began working with other organizations to coordinate the Holiday Community Program with the Fullerton School District for approximately 800 low-income families, in Fullerton, including 3,000 children. The families are provided with food bags, food vouchers, store gift certificates, and toys for the children. This program operates during the first three weeks of December, but is in planning for much of the year."

    In 2012 FIES changed their name to PATHWAYS OF HOPE, demonstrating that the new name better communicates the organization's impact of their services within the community and to better reflect who they are and what they do.

    FUHS takes Tribe Pride in assisting PATHWAYS OF HOPE with their Holiday Community Program. Each year FUHS students generously donate canned
    goods, toys, sports equipment, and their time to the program.
