Building Life Bridges
for Women

We support East Valley women in need by providing
a life bridge to economic stability, personal growth
and professional achievement.


After careful consideration regarding the recent COVID-19 developments and discussion with partners and stakeholders, we are postponing our April 16 Night of Heroes Gala. Tickets and sponsorships will be valid for the new date, October 8, 2020, at Stonebridge Manor in Mesa. We are also exploring online options. We appreciate your continued support of our mission. If you have any questions, please contact us at 480-788-0615 or email


In order to continue to support the women we serve, we have added a summer online auction  and raffle to help raise funds. Thank you to those who participated in the online auction for purses, restaurant gift cards, spa treatments, passes to local attractions and more. The Sam Edelman Designer Shoe Raffle will continue until 100 tickets are sold or until August 15, 2020, whichever comes first. Proceeds help to provide scholarship and mentoring programs for the women we serve.

Who We Are

Positive Paths is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving women and their families in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona. We are dedicated to advocating for and supporting the economic stability and empowerment of women. Positive Paths is led by a group of forward-thinking East Valley leaders committed to encouraging others to invest in the futures of East Valley women in need, and to support women to be resilient and positive contributors to their communities.

We believe that empowering women to be key change agents is an essential element to achieving a world that works for everyone. In fact, studies show that when women are supported and empowered, all of society benefits – families are healthier, more children complete elementary and high school and go on to trade school or college, productivity improves and incomes increase. In short, communities are strengthened.

Join us as we strive to improve our community by providing the needed education, mentoring, and professional development skills for women to obtain economic security for themselves, their families, and our community!
