Reclaiming Lives

Self confidence is a struggle for most of us. Appearance plays heavily into self esteem, and the desire to fit in and just look like everyone else is especially strong for folks who have had injuries that affect their appearance. Some turn to cosmetic surgery for a boost to their self esteem, though not everyone has the means or the opportunity to make that happen.

Hat that Jose made

Jose is a multi-talented participant on Team 2 at Pathways. He is currently working hard to enroll in a GED program and recently completed his resume to branch out and look for employment. Jose has decided to focus on working towards some exciting career goals and his team is there beside him if he wants help.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted everyone, but especially those in vulnerable communities. In an effort to uphold our mission, Pathways to Housing PA implemented a multi-pronged approach to maintain services continuity, staff and participant safety, and innovate service delivery.

I’ve worked for nearly 20 years in public health in various capacities and organizations. For 13 of those years I have worked as a nurse, mostly with people experiencing homelessness.  Through two decades of experience, Pathways to Housing PA is the organization that operates most closely to its mission day in and day out.  To be able to work with our mission in mind is a rarity, and a gift to both participants and staff.

We at Pathways to Housing PA, are so excited to celebrate our participant Michael! Our Integrated Care Clinic was able to support him and successfully treat him for Hepatitis. When any of our participants complete treatment our clinic recognizes them and their path to restoring their health by having a celebration.
 

At Pathways to Housing PA, we are committed to helping people reclaim their lives on their own terms. To do this, we help our program participants to discover what they want their lives to look like based on their goals, hopes, and dreams.

Saturday, November 16th is the start of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, which is a week dedicated to drawing attention to poverty. While hunger and homelessness are issues that require attention and support year round, we stand by our fellow social services organizations this week in advocating for community support and funds to address these critical issues.

Man looking off to the side
We are so grateful to have the opportunity to share this Annual Report with you. 2019 has been a year of continued growth at Pathways. In a city with a 26% poverty rate and so many people in need, there is always more to do.
