Providing Access To Help (PATH), an organization that assists people with special needs, has acquired the 5,000-square-foot former Sturgeon Bay Jaycees building and plans to use a portion of it as a nonprofit center.
“Our goal is to have the entire facility open this spring,” said Deb Doyle, co-director of PATH. “Our first nonprofit renters will occupy about 500 square feet and will be starting their program this month. Any type of nonprofit can utilize space in the building as part of a long-term lease or even if it’s just to hold a one-time meeting.
“Because of the limitations of our geography and community size, many of the organizations that our children and others could benefit from don’t serve this area because of the expenses associated with transportation and having to pay additional staff hours. So, we’re trying to replicate some of the program options.”
PATH is an important resource in Door County that embraces people with any type of disability, regardless of their age. For more information, contact Doyle at 920.495.7137.
