Providing Homes,  Restoring Health,  Reclaiming Lives

Our Impact



formerly homeless people with disabilities are living independently in every neighborhood in Philadelphia



individuals are receiving financial management assistance



households furnished for people and families moving out of homelessness


of those who were previously chronically homeless retain their housing for over five years



hours of paid transitional employment for marginalized people



medical appointments and 198 behavioral health visits were held in our clinic this year

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. We also provide furniture to folks moving out of homelessness from all over the city through our furniture bank.

Dear friends,

Needs change, and so we adapt and expand our services to meet those changes. We are grateful to our funders who trust us to expand our services in creative, out-of-the-box ways at Pathways to Housing PA.

We're thrilled that our CEO, Chris Simiriglia, is a finalist for the Social Innovations Journal Housing & Community Development award this year.

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our updated mission, logo, and tagline.

After ten years we’re saying goodbye to our familiar key logo and updating our look to better reflect who we are and where we’re going in our next ten years. 

Why are we updating our look? September 1 marked the start of our tenth year of operations and we have grown quite a lot since then.
