Queridos amigos:

Les anuncio con gran tristeza, que Pathways to Wellness cerrara sus puertas. No nos ha sido posible recaudar el efectivo necesario para subsistir, nos vemos obligados a cerrar nuestras operaciones el domingo 14 de Septiembre de 2014. 

Nuestra organizacion ha tenido un impacto significativo en nuestra comunidad durante los ultimos 25 anos. Hemos mejorado la calidad de vida de miles de pacientes reduciento su sufrimiento y su dolor. Estos pacientes no hubieran tenido acceso a atencion holistica si no hubiera sido por Pathways to Wellness. Brindamos alivio a personas con enfermedades mortales, con discapacidades severas, a pacientes en recuperacion de heridas procucidas en combate y por otros accidentes asi como a pacientes que sufren de adiccion. En anos recientes hemos brindado mas de 10,000 tratamientos anuales. Hemos promovido la practica de cuidado holistico, mediante la medicion clinica de resultados de tratamientos y mediante publicaciones de investigaciones en esta area. Hemos educado centenas de profesionales y de voluntarios en la comunidad acerca de la efectividad de terapias holisticas y hemos completado y publicado investigaciones en el campo de la acupuntura en conjuncion con la Escuela de Salud Publica de la Universidad de Boston, el Consorcio de los Veteranos y el Instituto Nacional de la Salud.  
 
Por estos y muchos otros logros durante en nuestros anos en funcion, debemos estar extremadamente orgullosos.  

Durante los ultimos 12 meses, Pathways se mudo a 35 West Newton Street, con grandes expectativas para nuestro futuro. Desafortunadamente, encontramos multiples dificultades y perdidas en nuestro camino, dificultades que se han acumulado. En este momento, nuestra situacion es insostenible, simplemente no tenemos los fondos suficientes para seguir funcionando. Nos vemos obligados a cerrar la clinica y proceder a disolver nuestra organizacion. A pesar de que nuestra direccion continua buscando financiamiento y oportunidades de asociarnos para poder realizar nuestra mision, es necesario tomar la dificil y muy seria decision de cancelar nuestra organizacion como la hemos conocido hasta hoy.  

Si necesita comunicarse con Pathways por cualquier razon, envie un correo electronico a info@pathwayboston.org. Nos comunicaremos con usted lo mas pronto posible.  

Se que esta noticia genera una profunda decepcion para todos los empleados, nuestros patrocinadores y especialmente, a los clientes de Pathways. Este momento es desgarrador, para todos nosotros.  
 
Sinceramente,

Devan Dewey

Dear Friends,

With great sadness, I am announcing the closure of Pathways to Wellness. Barring an infusion of capital to sustain the organization through a restructuring, Pathways to Wellness is closing its doors effective Sunday, September 14, 2014.

Our organization's impact on our community over the past 25 years has been significant. By reducing pain and suffering for those who would not otherwise have access to holistic care, we improved the quality of life for thousands of clients. We brought relief to people suffering from life-threatening diseases and their treatments, severe disabilities, the aftermath of armed combat and other traumatic events, and recovery from addiction. In recent years we have provided over 10,000 treatments each year. We also have advanced the practice of holistic care by measuring clinical outcomes and publishing research in the field. We have educated hundreds of medical professionals and lay people in the community regarding the effectiveness of holistic therapies, and we have completed and published research in the field of acupuncture in conjunction with the Boston University School of Public Health, the U.S. Bureau of Veterans Affairs, and the National Institutes of Health. 

For these and our many other achievements over the years, we should all be extremely proud. 

Over the last 12 months, Pathways moved to a new location at 35 West Newton Street with very high hopes for our future. Unfortunately we encountered multiple setbacks and losses which compounded each other. It seemed that we were thwarted at every turn, and at this point we do not have the funds to continue operations. We must shut the clinic doors and proceed with dissolving the organization. Even while the Board continues to seek out other sources of funding, partnership opportunities, and alternate strategies for fulfilling the Pathways mission; we must also undertake the difficult and serious business of closing the organization as we know it today.

If you wish to contact Pathways for any reason, please send an email to info@pathwaysboston.org. We will get back to you as promptly as possible.

I know that I share a deep and personal disappointment with all the employees, supporters, and especially the clients of Pathways. This is a heartbreaking moment for all of us.

Yours truly, 

Devan Dewey
