Pathfinder holds ribbon cutting at Wabash office

Posted: Friday, March 26, 2021

Pathfinder Services and the City of Wabash held a ceremony this week officially proclaiming March as Disability Awareness Month in Wabash as part of the ribbon-cutting for the new Pathfinder Services office.

The new office, located at 407 S. Cass Street, is a brand-new structure that more than doubles the space of the previous facility, and allows for more services to be provided for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

“We are so thankful for all of our partners who helped us with this project,” said Danielle Tips, president and CEO of Pathfinder Services. “We look forward to the expanded services and supports we will be able to provide for those we serve in Wabash.”

Following opening remarks by Tips, Wabash City Council President John Burnsworth read the official proclamation from Mayor Scott Long.

“Family, friends and community members can play a central role in enhancing the lives of people with disabilities,” said Burnsworth. “That happens when the family and community are provided with necessary support services and when public and private employers are aware of the capabilities of people with disabilities to be engaged in competitive work in inclusive settings.”

The City of Wabash contributed $20,000 to the project to help with the installation of water and utility services. For additional information, contact Nicole Hahn at (260) 355-2546, office; (260) 519-3837, cell or nhahn@pathfinderservices.org.
