The Pathway Home, a Celebration of Ending Homelessness, will be held on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at 5:00PM. In celebration this year, we will honor a  Woman of the Word Award to a woman who has made significant contributions to our community. We will also recognize a former client who has transformed their life with the Client Transformation Award.

We look forward to celebrating at the Atrium at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, which is next to our emergency shelter.

Hosted by nicole koglin

Nicole Koglin, Honorary Chair, will host the 2022 Pathway Home event. With her passion for the Milwaukee community and storytelling, we are in store for a moving evening in celebration of Cathedral Center's work. Nicole Koglin is Director of Strategic Initiatives at CBS 58. The Menomonee Falls native's broadcasting career spans two decades, 16 years of that working here in her hometown market Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Nicole's early experience of lugging around her own camera equipment, shooting and editing her stories serves as the foundation for her enthusiastic approach to storytelling. She came home to Milwaukee in 2004, serving as a Morning News Anchor and Host of 'Real Milwaukee' at WITI-TV before joining the CBS58 team in August of 2021.

Nicole and her husband Jason have two daughters. They enjoy camping in the summer, sledding in the winter and living room dance parties year-round.

2022 honorees

Raquel Filmanowicz

This year, we will honor Raquel Filmanowicz as the Woman of the Word. Recipients of this award match their words with actions, inspiring others to do the same. Milwaukee is a better place because of Raquel. She has touched countless nonprofits, leaders, and community organizations, including Cathedral Center. Every step of the way, Raquel ensures that she paves the way for others, breaking down barriers and creating opportunities for women and people of color.

Raquel serves as the Director of the Economic Equity Advisory Group for Commercial Banking at BMO Harris Bank. In this role, she works to level the playing field for marginalized communities. As the daughter of Mexican immigrants, Raquel saw first hand the challenges of extended family members who did not have a banking relationship. Through her work with the BMO Empower Initiative, people of color have greater access to business loans, home loans, and other investment opportunities.

As a first generation college graduate, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee and holds a certificate of Corporate Community Involvement from Boston College.
