About Pathways Clubhouse:
Founded in 1984, Pathways Clubhouse (PC) offers hope, encouragement and opportunities to people affected by mental illness. PC is a clubhouse creating community among its members. The charity reports that mental illness affects 1 in 5 people and costs Canada $50b per year. PC provides housing subsidies to members so that they can focus on getting a stable job and build fulfilling social lives.
Pathways Clubhouse’s housing program makes up 50% of total program spending. It includes rent subsidies and running a 24-unit townhouse. In F2016, PC helped 117 tenants, a number it hopes to increase to 150 in the next 2 years. Another major program is PC’s work-ordered day. Members choose daily jobs: making newsletters, planning social activities, greeting new members, working reception, and running the restaurant, snack bar and thrift shop. This program builds upon the charity’s philosophy that work enriches lives. Together, this program accounts for 31% of total program costs. The remaining 19% go to smaller programs: public education (5%), social programming (5%), employment services (4%), volunteers (2%), member education (1%), Chinese support (1%), and wellness (1%).
Pathways Clubhouse will soon complete the Storeys Project. The Storeys Project involves the construction of a new facility for PC, which started in 2013. PC, along with other organizations and government support, will finish construction of its new building and move in summer 2017.
Pathways Clubhouse is a micro-cap charity, receiving $157k in donations in F2016. Donations represent only 6% of total revenue, with government funding (76%) and business activities (16%) funding most of PC’s programming. Administrative costs were 6% of total revenue and fundraising costs were 18% of total donations. For every $1 donated, 76 cents go to the cause, which is within Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range.
Funding reserves are -$244k due to a mortgage of $1.1m. However, B.C. Housing makes all mortgage payments for PC. By excluding the mortgage, the program coverage increases to 35%. This is still low and shows that PC only has enough funds to run its programs for 4 months, indicating a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that is currently under review by Pathways Clubhouse. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
