We start by housing people directly from the streets, without precondition.  Then we address their underlying issues around mental health, addiction, medical care, income, and education to help integrate and welcome them back into our community.

    It's movie day! Thanks to generous donors, we are able to provide simple yet meaningful activities such as movie day, picnics and trips to the park.

This September 1st, Pathways to Housing PA reached a big milestone. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love. We have come a long way from the days of working in a single room with a few employees to now, ten years out, having a staff of over 80, supporting over 400 of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens using the Housing First model. We have also helped thousands move out of homelessness by providing furniture through our program, the Philadelphia Furniture Bank.

Joe Quinn has a unique job. He is a guide, but his turf extends beyond city streets and notable landmarks into human motivation. Joe’s job is to help people navigate the bumpy road out of addiction. And like any good guide, his insights come from hard-earned personal experience.
