About Pathways

We offer free apartments and supportive services to young adults between the ages 18-24 who are or may become homeless.  Young adults who become residents are expected to work toward the goals of employment, developing a strong support system and permanent housing. Residents have a maximum of 24 months to achieve these goals, and most are ready to move on prior to this.  Aftercare services are also available for any former resident.

There are no program fees; however, residents are held financially responsible for any damage or loss of Pathways property.
