Former Leader of Larimer Humane Society Will Lead Pathways Capital Campaign to Expand Services

We have great news to share! Judy Calhoun, who previously was CEO of the Larimer Humane Society, is our new Director of Development. Judy will lead our campaign to build an inpatient care center.

Judy has more than 30 years of experience in nonprofit leadership. She led the successful $2.1 million campaign to build the Humane Society’s new animal care facility. Judy’s success and experience with big capital campaigns, and her deep ties to northern Colorado, will be a huge benefit to Pathways and our expansion plans to meet the growing needs of patients and families in our community.

“I’m really excited about another opportunity to support our community, this time with a new facility that is so needed,” Judy said. “A new inpatient care center will help transform hospice care here in Northern Colorado and it will mean so much to family, friends and patients.”

Through our campaign, we plan to raise $8 million to build a 12-bed inpatient care center next to our Fort Collins campus at 305 Carpenter Road.

The Pathways Inpatient Care Center will be designed to care for hospice patients who have the greatest end-of-life needs. The Care Center will have a comfortable, home-like environment, distinctly different from a hospital-based center.

Each of the 12 rooms will accommodate groups of visitors as well as family members who wish to stay overnight with a patient. There will be access to outdoor garden spaces where patients will be able to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of their bed. Also included will be a chapel, a large, shared communal kitchen, areas for quiet reflection and gardens and walkways throughout the site blending indoor and outdoor spaces.

Judy’s first day was Monday, Jan. 18. We’re so excited to have her on board! Reach her at Judith.calhoun@pathways-care.org.
