Pathlight is the premier provider of exceptional services to people with disabilities and their families. In partnership, we design high-quality, innovative, and person- centered supports for those we serve within our community. Pathlight offers a
variety of community-based living options through residential supports, shared living, and adult family care. We also offer enrichment and recreational opportunities for children and adults through our Whole Children and Milestones programs and autism- support services through Autism Connections. Family Empowerment is a Hampshire County-based program that provides information, referral, and support to people

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES
A gift to Pathlight provides friendship, supports innovation, and champions dignity for children and adults who are served by one or many of our programs. Pathlight
has multiple ways a donor can support our mission: gifts of cash, stocks, and legacy bequests, as well as one-year and multi-year pledges. Memorials or honorariums are a great way to make a difference. Corporate partnerships and matching gifts are a great way for the business sector to get involved. Also, you can attend or host a fundraising event.
UPCOMING EVENTS
April 27, 2023: Autism Connections Autism Conference, online and in-person at Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel. As the number of people diagnosed with autism continues to rise, so does the importance of this full-scale hybrid conference, featuring expert speakers, valuable educational resources, exhibitors, networking,
and more. This year’s keynote speakers are Jennifer O’Toole, The ‘autism expert’ on Netflix’s Love on the Spectrum, and Andrew Arboe, founder of Driving with Autism. The conference will also feature a number of workshops, breakout sessions, and a packed exhibitor hall. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn, connect, and find inspiration for people with autism, families, and educators.
