Introducing our Fiscal Year 2022 Annual Report
My, what a year it’s been. We have taken on some big projects, which we’re excited to share with you throughout this report, and we’re planning even more for the coming year. Pathways to Housing PA is stronger than ever and we remain committed to providing homes, restoring health, and reclaiming lives for our community. We are grateful for the opportunity to share our Annual Report with you, once again, to highlight our impact in fiscal year 2022.
Pathways Housing Wellness Corporation launched in summer 2021 to develop affordable housing units in Philadelphia. Since then, we’ve gained site control of 20 properties and are planning our first series of apartments that will be available to the community at significantly reduced rents. Stay tuned for additional updates!
We also spent time this year hard at work on Good Haul, a junk hauling social enterprise business. Good Haul will allow us to double the number of Work First transitional employment staff we can support, while also generating revenue to support the Philadelphia Furniture Bank and providing an additional source of furniture donations.
Of course, our core programming also continued throughout this fiscal year. We currently support 550 participants through our Housing First program, and those participants have access to our Integrated Care Clinic, Center of Excellence, Community Inclusion and Work First programs, as well as our Alumni Association. Our very first graduates of the Alumni Association are still stably housed, and our next cohort is preparing to take the next step soon. The Integrated Care Clinic hosted 3,844 medical and behavioral health visits. The Center of Excellence saw 131 participants monthly; a 70% increase from last fiscal year. Housing First University has partnered with 48 different agencies, universities, and community groups and has trained more than 5,000 unique individuals in harm reduction, the Housing First model, and related topics since launching in 2019. And the Philadelphia Furniture Bank furnished nearly 1,400 homes this year.
As always, we are so grateful to you for supporting our important work. We need to be innovative and creative in order to deliver the high-quality services that we are known for, and we appreciate your role in allowing us to do that.
You have our sincere gratitude.
