About Economic Mobility Pathways

Economic Mobility Pathways (EMPath) is a Boston-based nonprofit that disrupts poverty through direct services, advocacy, research, and a global learning network. Our mission is to transform people’s lives by helping them move out of poverty and to provide other institutions with the tools to systematically do the same.


Our previous names include Crittenton Women’s Union, the Women’s Educational and Industrial Union, and Crittenton Inc. This organization has been continuously operating in one or more capacities since 1824. While our name has changed over the decades, our focus on economic empowerment has not.

EMPath is known worldwide for our coaching approach, which is founded on the belief that each pathway out of poverty is different. We are at the helm of a movement to shift thinking from human services to human development, and to create lasting pathways to economic mobility for all.
