Event Honors Executive Director John Midwood

An event at the Union League honoring the Rev. John Midwood on the occasion of his upcoming retirement brought many old friends together.

Many in attendance had made a special gift to the John E. Midwood Pathways Fund established in Midwood’s honor. More than $260,000 was earmarked to the fund to support life-changing programs and innovative opportunities that help clients overcome the barriers to success and break the cycle of deep-rooted poverty.

In addition, this unrestricted fund will, at the Board’s discretion, invest in groundbreaking initiatives and agency partnerships to ensure strong support for ECS clients as they find a real and reachable path to self-fulfillment and independence. These goals mirror the priorities Midwood established during his years as Executive Director and reflect the strategic plan of the agency.
