Pathways Family Shelter Features:

80 New Beds

The Pathways Family Shelter will provide an additional 80 new beds, doubling the current capacity for housing families (adults and children) and single women. It will also free up beds at the North Avenue facility for single men & veterans.
 

Children's Library & study / play areas

The dedicated study areas will ensure children have a quiet place to focus on their studies during the school year. Additionally, the play areas will give them a place to go to release some energy, freeing parents to focus on accessing support services.

Medical Day Shelter / Onsite Healthcare Staff

The new building will house a first-of-its-kind respite unit focused on decreasing the spread of common illnesses, and will potentially include space for substance abuse therapies. Onsite healthcare providers will provide additional care.
 

Centralized Administration & Support Programs

A centralized location for HomewardBound administrative staff and onsite partner organizations as well as adult quiet/study areas and private/confidential conference rooms for training, coaching, and completing job and public assistance applications.


A campaign has been launched to raise $1 million locally from individual, business and organizational supporters. Your donation and continued support will help us reach our goal.

June 2018

The Pathways Family Shelter will provide a safe place for these families, access to assistance services, a first-of-its-kind respite unit to decrease the spread of common illnesses, and will potentially include space for substance abuse therapies. This model of providing opportunity through services is proven. A recent study on homelessness found that more than 80 percent of people who enter homeless shelters and receive one or two services, exit and do not return.
