- Our Work
Communities that are free from intimate partner and family violence.
PATHS’ mission is to support and collaborate with member agencies and others to address, prevent, and ultimately to eliminate intimate partner and family violence.
We support our membership and communities through: awareness; education; research; advocacy; revenue generation; and providing programs and services.
The following are our values and ways that we demonstrate them:
Professionalism is demonstrated by our experience, transparency and open accountability and by maintaining confidentiality, being open to change and having a strong commitment to equality.
Equity is demonstrated in all our relationships, by being inclusive and acknowledging diversity and intersectional feminism that includes all cultures, genders, ages and beliefs.
Knowledge is demonstrated through our research, sharing of evidence-based practices, and participating in formal and informal communities of practice. We share our knowledge with our membership, partners, and communities.
In the spirit of reconciliation between Indigenous Canadians and non-Indigenous Canadians, and in recognition of the harms that have been caused to Indigenous people since colonization, we, the members of the Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services of Saskatchewan, reaffirm our commitment to acknowledge the rights and obligations resulting from our national character as treaty people. We will support The Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, especially those that speak to services for victims of violence.
