Reaction to Supreme Court Decision

Ill-founded, expensive and inhumane! We join the National Homelessness Law Center and National Alliance to End Homelessness in condemning SCOTUS’ decision on the criminalization of homelessness.


Our 4th Annual Duck Day at Island H20 Water Park was a great success! Thank you to everyone who came out to on June 1st to help raise money for our homeless community!

Success Story

Pathway Changed and Saved My Life

Patricia came to Florida in 2011 and became homeless immediately. She was using drugs and alcohol and bounced between couch surfing and living in a tent in the woods. She had been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and was not taking her medication.

After 6 years on the streets she was put on the Permanent Supportive Housing list and housed with Pathway Homes.  Once in her apartment, she started to reconnect with family from whom she had been estranged for years.

She stopped using drugs and alcohol and started working on recovery goals. She got her license back, bought a vehicle and spends her time now helping others.

She always has a smile on her face and says that Pathway Homes changed and saved her life.
