$17,977 raised by 39 donors
At Pathways to Housing, we help individuals experiencing homelessness build healthy lives by utilizing compassionate assistance and self-reliance as tools for growth, learning, and stability.
We collaborate and partner with other local organizations and government agencies to achieve our mission, so that our efforts are not redundant and to maximize available resources.
We are grateful for individual donors and grants from community partners that provide the majority of our funding.
Programs and Services
Founded in November 2020, Pathways to Housing began by providing prepared meals, supplemental food, hygiene items, clothing, and more to individuals enrolled in Shasta Community Health Center's HOPE Medical Respite program. The program serves homeless individuals who are discharged from the hospital and need post-acute care services such as wound care, home health nursing and physical therapy.
In February 2022, we opened the Hartman House: a 15-bed congregate living facility located in South Redding. Funding for this facility was provided by Dignity Health and a grant from Shasta County Health and Human Services. The Hartman House is a safe and welcoming environment where we serve up to 10 men and 5 women at a time. Residents stay for 4-8 weeks while they heal and become medically stable. They have their own sleeping area, locking storage, receive three nutritious meals per day, and have access to laundry and showers and mail service.
SCHC's Medical Respite team provides health care services on site and our staff is available 24/7 to provide assistance and case management services. Meals are prepared in the commercial kitchen and served in the dining room. Residents are connected to other support services like job training, mental health and substance abuse treatment, Medi-Cal enrollment and housing opportunities.
We also operate a scattered site model for individuals who are not a good fit for a congregate living model, such as those who have pets, family members or severe and untreated mental health or substance use challenges. We place people into a motel room and bring medical care, case management, laundry service, meals, hygiene products and clothing to them.
Starting in March 2023, we began providing case management and meal delivery services to those living at United Way of Northern California's South Market Micro Shelter Community. This is 10-month transitional housing program for homeless individuals. Our staff assists residents in overcoming barriers to obtaining permanent housing (insert examples of assistance provided)
