Since I got with Pathways, I have to listen to suggestions. I found that it’s started to work for me. I have a lot of people in my life right now. I got a whole lot of help going on for me right now.

I really remember what happened. It was October 18th of this last year. I don’t know if I was walking across the street, or standing with a sign, I don’t know. I got hit by a car. But it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.

Fastening a seatbelt before driving a vehicle, applying sunscreen before a day at the beach, and putting on a helmet before riding a bicycle are strategies many use to reduce the harm associated with potentially risky every day activities. The desire to stay safe is a natural instinct, particularly when the health and wellness of ourselves and those around us may be at risk. Recognizing this risk and taking steps to protect ourselves is the foundation of harm reduction.

Housing First is a human right
Our most basic needs for survival are food, water, warmth, and rest, but a person is only able to maintain these things if they first have safety and security. Housing First is a philosophical approach that says, let’s start with a permanent place to live.
Pathways to Housing; the Housing First, Harm Reduction Model

We belive that housing is a basic human right.

It's that simple.
