Pathways to Housing PA, CEO Christine Simiriglia cheers the team on at Generosity Philadelphia 5k run

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.
