Phillip, top right, moved up into
the most advanced reading class
at Paducah Middle School! His
sister, Jenna, top left, also began
excelling in her math class!
Lucas, Josie, and Jennifer completed
Etiquette Training, led by our volunteer extraordinaires Ginger, Georgia
Lee, and Maggie Moore. They were
rewarded with a Fancy Manners
Dinner Party where their etiquette
skills were tested and approved!
Local businesses, schools, and fellow nonprofit agencies
continue to strengthen and enrich our ministry to children
in crisis. We are so grateful for the many partnerships we
have been able to build in our community.
Thank You
2nd Annual Trivia Night
Nearly 200 people came out for our 2nd Annual Trivia
Night at Lone Oak Church of Christ on March 28th. Thanks
to the generosity of our participants and sponsors, we
raised over $7,000, more than doubling our proceeds from
last year! A BIG THANKS to our Evening Sponsor, Tricord,
and our many table sponsors, volunteers, and silent auction donors who helped make the evening possible.

Happy Mother’s Day!
Return Service Requested
Mother’s Day is a favorite time each year for Kim and me because we’ve been
blessed with godly mothers who love us unconditionally. Our mothers have encouraged us, supported us, and guided us with wisdom. We always look forward to
spending time with our mothers and celebrating our lives together. Unfortunately,
many children do not have the same blessing. We serve children who are often neglected by their mother and sometimes abandoned by mom. These children
experience great heartache and disappointment because the person who should
care most about them seems to care so little.
Ricky Burse, D.Min
Executive Director
“We serve children who
are often neglected by
their mother and
sometimes abandoned
by mom.”

Great Prizes! Great Course!
Great Cause!
Both Kim and I are blessed that our mothers are still living. We are making a special
donation to New Pathways in their honor for Mother’s Day. Will you join us by making a special donation to honor or remember your mother? Will you send a gift of
$500, $250, $100, or $50 to help bless our children? We will be happy to send
a notice to whomever you request acknowledging your gift.
Grace and peace,
Show your Mom how much you care by
giving a gift to New Pathways in honor
or in memory of her. We will send a
special note acknowledging your gift to
whomever you request. Your gift will
not only bless your mother, but will
also bless the children at New Pathways
who live away from their mothers
everyday. Thank you for helping us care
for children in crisis.
For more information call 270-674-6061
or visit www.npfc.net.
There is a challenge however! We are only able to minister effectively when we
have the resources we need. Our ability to care for children is directly proportional
to the revenue we raise! Your partnership is vital to our success.
May God bless you for caring about our precious children.

The mission of New Pathways for Children is to bring hope to hurting children by
ministering to their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs in a Christ-like
atmosphere. One of the great opportunities we have is to share the unconditional
love of Jesus with our children. We are able to encourage them, support
them, and value them as individuals created in the image of God and fill some of the
gaps missing from an absent parent.

Sheana and her four children have been living at New Pathways since early February, days after her youngest child was
born. After many months of being homeless and finding themselves with no place to go, they gladly took up residence at
Emma Belle’s Haven. We know that being a single mom is difficult and sometimes overwhelming. “New Pathways was there
for me when I needed help. They helped me get to appointments and helped by providing for my children.” Without the
stress of worrying how they would make it day to day, Sheana
says this is the happiest her kids have been in a long time.

New Pathways for Children is a 501(C)3 Christian charity dedicated to serving children in crisis.
