The co-director of Promoting Access to Help (PATH) has said the numerous Door County non-profit organizations have created a positive, welcoming effect for those just moving into the area. Deb Doyle, who was one of the founding members of PATH, said she has worked with multiple families, many who have kids with special needs, who have made it a point to mention how supportive Door County residents can be. Doyle also said she believes Door County has acquired its positive reputation because of a willingness to cooperate from town to town.
PATH looks to increase the number of resources available for parents whose kids have special needs to attend to. The organization recently purchased the Jaycees building and plans to use the space as a central hub for both PATH and other non-profits in Door County.
