Support Our Mission


Make Donation

Portage Path provides life-changing services to over 10,000 local people annually. Our clients are people who have chosen to make a commitment to recover from the difficult issues that keep them from leading a full, productive life.

Together with our warm professional staff, these brave people are able to begin rebuilding their lives.  Consequently, they gain renewed sense of hope, and recover to the point where they can make a positive difference in their family and their community.  So, when you support Portage Path, you are investing in the future of these local people, and in the future of our Akron and Summit County community.

Where does my donation go?

Portage Path Behavioral Health is a local nonprofit.  All funds donated go directly into the programs that most help local people recover from mental illness and related substance use problems.

For example:

  • $25 helps provide an individual counseling session for a single mom trying to keep it all together for her family.
  • $50 helps provide a week’s worth of Transitional Support Group sessions for a man who’s recently been released from inpatient psychiatric care, to help him readjust and return to life in the community.
  • $500 underwrites three months of counseling, psychiatry, and medication for someone trying to constructively manage Bipolar Disorder.

Thank you for believing in what we do.  Your donation will make a tangible difference in the lives local people each and every day.  You can read brief stories of successful recovery here.
