Lake Worth Beach Community Redevelopment Agency Welcomes Path to College to New Home

On Tuesday, April 9th, Lake Worth Beach CRA will welcome Path to College to their new home at 1213 Lake Avenue. The 5,000 sq. ft. building was blighted and unusable until the CRA purchased and renovated the neglected space using a $1 million dollar investment composed of grants and foundation gifts. The goal was to offer the space to a nonprofit that would serve the area’s youth. “Our children are our future and I can think of no better use of this building and our investment than Path to College,” said CRA Executive Director Joan Oliva.

Path to College plans to name the new center Catapult! Youth Mentoring Center. The name “Catapult” reflects the gap that exists between high school graduation and post-secondary attainment for low-income students in Palm Beach County.
