Last month, Senator Donoghue visited Pathfinder Drop-In Center and Apartments to learn more about Bridgewell’s homeless and housing services.
Program Director David Robinson and Director of Residential Services Shirley Gosnear along with President & CEO Bob Stearns and Director of Development Cari Palmer led the tour through both buildings explaining the various services provided.
The Pathfinder Drop-In Center serves close to 43,000 meals annually while also providing a safe place for homeless men and women in the Lowell area.
While at the Drop-In Center, individuals can shower, do laundry, eat and meet with case managers to help work toward self-sufficiency. Bridgewell’s Drop-In Center also has a resource conference room where other Lowell-area nonprofits can use the space for meetings, professional development and more.
Pictured above: As the tour moved to the Pathfinder Apartments, Senator Donoghue toured Charmain’s apartment – one of the first individuals to move into the housing units. She was able to share her personal story and expressed her gratitude for her home and her new life.
