Invest In You

Invest In You combines content from our previous Fiscally Fit and Employment Readiness Program, while meeting other needs of our ever-changing population. Topics include: career and social development/networking, financial literacy, computer skills and self-image education.  The program is facilitated by Junior League of Birmingham volunteers.  Invest In You occurs once per month, for four consecutive nights and includes a meal shared by both volunteers and guests, childcare, and transportation. Attendees are comprised of Pathways' housing guests as well as women from partner agencies in the community.
