Pathways to Promise administers and disseminates The Companionship Movement, a practice of presence. The Companionship Movement is a relational response to isolation and distress, and supportive of healing and recovery through the community.
Pathways to Promise is an interfaith cooperative, which was founded in 1988 by fourteen faith groups and mental health organizations to facilitate the faith community’s work in reaching out to those with mental illnesses and their families.
We provide training, consultation, and other resources for faith groups who want to become supportive, caring communities for people with mental illnesses and their families. Our written resources, which include ministry manuals, bulletin inserts, and training curricula, are used by people at all levels of faith group structures from local congregations to regional and national faith group staff. Some written materials are available in Protestant, Roman Catholic, or Jewish versions.
