Safe Havens

Temporary housing facilities and rehabilitation services for homeless individuals who have been diagnosed with serious and persistent mental illness, and have not successfully engaged in conventional housing or outpatient treatment.



Permanent & Temporary Supportive Housing

Our supportive housing residences serve homeless single adults, many of whom face obstacles to independent living. Our programs promote self-sufficiency and independence, enhance residents' ability to function in their communities and encourage participation in wellness and recovery-oriented activities.  


Medical Wellness Program

Urban Pathways’ Medical Wellness Programs work with program participants in getting them healthy and staying healthy. Clients suffering from mental illness, substance abuse, untreated health conditions, and the long-term effects of homelessness are encouraged to attend wellness workshops.  


Career Enhancement

The Career Development Program serves program participants multiple barriers to employment, including prior involvement in the justice system, poor work histories, substance abuse problems and/or limited education. Staff work with clients to identify employment opportunities that match the client's skills and experience. Staff also assist these individuals in completing applications, prepare for interviews, and provide support with job leads.

Moving On Initiative 

Urban Pathways was awarded the Moving On Initiative, a partnership between the Corporation for Supportive Housing, Robin Hood and Urban Pathways. This program supports the transition to independent housing for 20 tenants who have achieved stability in our supportive housing. Along with a new apartment, the Moving On Initiative provides case management, community support, mental, physical, substance abuse counseling, landlord negotiation services and aftercare services for participants to ensure a stable transition.
