Charity gets boost from Cash Back programme

Pathways Bermuda has been given a $15,000 boost through the Cash Back for Communities programme, which uses seized criminal assets to benefit the community.

Senator Jeffrey Baron, Minister of National Security, presented the charity's executive director Gita Blakeney Saltus with a cheque, thanking them for the work they do to tackle addiction on the island.

“There are hundreds of Bermudians who have reclaimed their lives and who have been transformed through treatment and recovery,” he said. “To highlight Pathways Bermuda's mission, their aim is to provide a holistic and compassionate environment so those affected by substance use and drug addiction can find a permanent path to recovery and healing.

“And the Government stands firmly in support of Pathways Bermuda and the important services they provide. In addition to expressing my support, I wish to encourage residents to do what they can to help Pathways Bermuda — either by donating to the organisation or by volunteering their time.”

Pathways Bermuda is dedicated to providing a permanent path to healing for those individuals and families in the community whose lives have been devastated by addiction. The organisation, established in 2007 as Canon Bermuda, is focused on local services, programmes and the delivery of charity care where the need is critical.
