Pathway Homes recognized the dedication, leadership and support of Del. Mark Sickles, Potomac Health Foundation and Tom Fleetwood, head of Fairfax’s Department of Housing and Community Development, at the social-safety-net provider’s annual Steps to Pathways Breakfast.
Honorees at the Nov. 1 event were saluted for their efforts to ensure vulnerable members of the community have needed services and a place to call home. The event was attended by more than 200 people and raised nearly $175,000.
