PATH: local families helping local families in need 

Helping hands

PATH is a faith-based social services agency addressing poverty in Smith County, Texas. PATH stands for People Attempting to Help. Our grassroots organization started in 1985 in Tyler and helps people struggling with life's most basic needs—those who have lived in multigenerational poverty and want to become self-sufficient and those who are experiencing poverty for the first time and just need a helping hand.

Annually, thousands of families in Smith County benefit from the support given to PATH.  Help from PATH is available by calling 903.597.PATH (7284) or by visiting our offices located at 402 West Front Street. Let us know more about your specific need. We're open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
