PATH House

PATH House

“PATH” stands for Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness, which is a statewide initiative designed to reach those who have historically been considered unreachable or unhouseable. The PATH Street Outreach team serves our unsheltered neighbors, who are living in places not meant for human habitation such as under bridges, in the woods, or in homeless camps.

 

While a few of the homeless population choose to live “off the grid,” most are not homeless by choice in the unsheltered homeless population, there are many individuals who have debilitating mental or physical health conditions. Some have experienced significant adversity such as childhood abuse or traumatic military combat. These individuals are frequently distrustful of social services that they may feel have failed them in the past.

 

Fifth Street Ministries PATH House is available to all homeless individuals in our community who are living unsheltered. Individuals can visit the PATH House on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to receive resources, such as food, clothing, showers, do laundry, access Internet services, and connect to other community resources. Also, once a week, a support group meeting is held at the PATH House for enrolled PATH clients who would like to participate. Enrolled clients are also provided with case management, life skills training, transportation assistance, and housing search, as necessary. On Tuesday and Thursday, staff utilize these days to complete administrative tasks and provide outreach and engagement to homeless locations throughout Iredell County.
