Pathway is the only program

Providing income- based, peer driven, substance-free transitional and permanent housing. Pathway provides a solution for individuals graduating from other programs, which allows those agencies to decrease their waiting lists to serve those in desperate need of help.

Housing is matched with Individual Needs

Pathway offers three levels of substance-free supportive housing.  Each level has different criteria with placement depending on status of housing, recovery and or  stability and employment and income needs.  Applicants may enter advanced phases from other community programs and are not required to begin at Pathway-I.

We need our residents as much as they need us. They give the new guy walking through the door, the same hope they found.
