Pathway Home Program

The Pathway Home program provides financial assistance for up to 12 months to help individuals and families move out of homeless shelters and stay with family members or friends until they can move into a home of their own. 

If you have been living in a shelter for 90 or more days, you are encouraged to apply for the program.

If you are approved for Pathway Home, the family or friend you will stay with will get monthly payments of up to $1,800 for up to 12 months. You and your host family will also each receive a $500 gift card.

If you’re currently eligible for CityFHEPS and remain eligible at the point you apply, you will be able to use this program to move to your own apartment, even if you leave shelter now to join family or friends.

Your case manager or housing specialist can help you complete the application and gather the required documents.
