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.

One of our favorite parts of the Chair Affair is reviewing the artists who apply to participate. This year we had an incredible number of artists apply and our guest curator, Damon Reaves from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, had a difficult time selecting the artists who would be a part of this experience.

Like everyone else, Pathways participants have had to navigate challenges brought on by the COVID-19 virus. Our participants have dealt with health concerns, feelings of isolation, challenges in maintaining supports, and loss of income during the ongoing pandemic. One of our Team 7 Service Coordinators, Emily Reichner, spoke with one of our participants, Dan, regarding his experiences during the last nine months and his hopes for 2021.
