Pathways to Housing is a community based nonprofit deeply committed to addressing chronic homelessness in the Washington DC area. They are one of the leading organizations working to end homelessness in the greater Washington DC metro. Their approach to eliminating homelessness is simple: assist individuals experiencing homelessness in obtaining permanent housing. Pathways to Housing has a “housing first” motto, as they do not believe that treating the issues surrounding homelessness is particularly successful until individuals have access to a clean, stable home. Of course, those at Pathways to Housing do understand that housing insecurity is just one part of the problem. They also offer other services that support sustainable, self-sufficient living: job development and placement, street outreach, a drop-in center available to all those in crisis, and a free clinic that provides vital healthcare services. For more information about specific services, individuals should contact the organization directly using the information on this page.
