Celebrating One Year of Path-Now: Empowering the IDD Community Together

As we celebrate the first anniversary of Path-Now, we reflect on an incredible year of growth, learning, and community building. Launched in May 2023, Path-Now has dedicated itself to being an invaluable resource for individuals and families in the intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) community across California. Our mission is to connect users with custom-matched resources and services that meet their unique needs, and in just one year, we have made significant strides toward this goal.

Our Milestones

Connections Made: In our first year, we have successfully facilitated 50 meaningful connections between individuals and the resources they need. Each connection represents a step forward in improving the lives of those in the IDD community.

Profiles Created: Our platform now hosts 150 individual profiles. These profiles help us understand the specific needs and preferences of our users, allowing us to provide more personalized and effective support.

Service Providers: We are proud to have 9,600 service providers on our platform. This extensive network ensures that our users have access to a diverse range of services and resources tailored to their needs.

New Features

Review Feature: We introduced a new review feature, enabling users to share their experiences and feedback about the services they receive. This addition not only helps other users make informed decisions but also helps service providers improve their offerings.

Referral Feature: Our new referral feature makes it easier for users to recommend Path-Now to others within the community. By sharing our platform with friends, family, and colleagues, users can help more individuals find the resources and support they need.

Community Engagement

Media Highlight: Path-Now was highlighted on KTLA, bringing greater visibility to our mission and the work we are doing. This recognition is a testament to the impact we are making in the IDD community.

We understand that the needs of the IDD community are dynamic, and we strive to ensure our services remain relevant and impactful. Our team is constantly working on new features and enhancements based on the feedback we receive from our users.

A Year of Learning and Growth

One of the most important lessons we have learned in the past year is that we are stronger together. The feedback and support from our community have been invaluable in shaping our platform. We rely on the insights and experiences of our users to guide our development, and in turn, we are dedicated to empowering the IDD community with the resources they need to thrive.

“I recommend other service providers to be on Path-Now. It provides that one-stop shop for a client participant or an individual to find services readily available that suits their needs. So it’s very individualistic and also person-centered.”

“Path-Now, we needed you yesterday! When we first heard about this new resource, we were almost stunned to realize its potential. At its best, the app bridges the gap between the unknown and the known and cuts through months of research self-advocates and parents have done on the journey to resources for optimal quality of life. We found several options for our son on Day One. Looking forward to continued participation!”
