The best way to spotlight how the Pathfinder Outreach Network assists families is to let them tell you themselves. Many of those who were assisted by a Pathfinder in the past are now outreach volunteers themselves.
"I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks for all you do...I am always thankful that there are folks out there getting good information to the rest of us so we can, in turn, pass it on."
"I know I have not even come close to the end of this journey, but I know from talking to Pathfinder volunteers that I have been given the best life line for support there is. I only hope to give back what I have been given."
"As a Military Health System Health Planning Analyst and as a TRICARE Beneficiary myself, I would like to thank you and your organization for your efforts to get this information out to our service members, retirees and their families."

"My son was born with a cleft palate and PRS. Thanks to a new friend with the Pathfinder network who sent us new feeder nipples, we are now doing much better with the feedings. How lucky we are to already have great support!"
"I can only imagine what a tremendous resource this would have been to me when my daughter was first born...the help on filing insurance with good documentation is just priceless. Thank you to all the great people who are here to help each other. This is such an important resource!"
"I am so proud to be a part of the Pathfinder Outreach Network. It has inspired so many of us to help others. I'm sure none of us thought we'd be actively seeking out new mothers to give them guidance and support. You've created a community that WILL change things."
"For six years no one I knew understood my concerns or what I go through to make sure my daughter gets the care she needs. Now that I have the Pathfinders, I feel stronger than I ever have. I can come here whenever I need/want to and ask anything or share anything. I can help others by sharing my experiences with other families, as well."
