A Commitment to the
Development of Affordable Housing

In 2007, Urban Pathways implemented a “housing first” approach through our outreach and drop-in center programs.  Our primary goal was and still is to help single adults move rapidly and directly into housing from the street.

To ensure that clients who are willing to accept permanent housing have a place to live and to support the Citys plan to reduce chronic homelessness by two-thirds, we established an original goal of developing 200 new units of affordable, supportive housing.

Thanks to an increased commitment from the City, State, and private sector to end chronic street homelessness, we anticipate placing 1,000 units of housing in operation by 2017.

Dear Friends and Supporters

In the past month and a half, the New York Daily News has run three articles regarding the purported failure of a New York City-based human services nonprofit, Pathways to Housing, to pay the rents of its clients, leading to their evictions.

Please be assured that this organization is not Urban Pathways and has no connection to Urban Pathways, a NYC-based human services nonprofit serving the chronically homeless.
