Why Housing First Works
For the Chronically Homeless
For the Community
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.

The first thing you're likely to notice about Pathways' CEO, Chris Simiriglia, is her incredible energy. Don't let her beautiful flower garden deceive you; between starting Pathways to Housing PA in 2008 and the Philadelphia Furniture Bank in 2014, she doesn't have much free time.
If you chat a while, you'll realize she's a problem solver, "chronically responsible" some friends have called it; driven to make things better. That's part of what drew her to Housing First, and it's why the Furniture Bank exists.
