Class of Housing/Services: day center and housing for women.

General Information:
Day Center The Day Center provides for the basic needs of any homeless woman or child who visits the Center, including hot meals, showers, laundry facilities, and clothing. After those basic needs are met, Pathways provides supportive resources such as case management, counseling and life skill classes. Once these services have been obtained, these women are more likely to be candidates for transitional housing programs. Without on-going support, they are likely to remain homeless for extended periods of time. Whether one is staying on the street or is currently staying at an emergency shelter, all women and children experiencing homelessness are elliglble to utilize the Day Center resources. The Day Center is open 365 days a year. Weekdays 8:15 AM - 5:00 PM Weekends and Holidays 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM   Housing Safe Haven Safe Haven is the only program of its kind for women in the state of Alabama. It began in 2006 and can house 10 women at a time. Safe Haven provides a small, homelike environment for chronically homeless women with a mental illness while offering supportive services. Guests in this program can stay at Pathways indefinitely.


Helpful Definitions For Pathways - for Women:
Transitional housing is affordable supportive housing designed to provide housing and appropriate support services to persons who are homeless or who are close to homelessness. The transition is to help them be more self sufficient to move towards independent living on their own. Transitional housing locations are oftentimes called Halfway Houses. The naming of the two (Halfway House OR Transitional House) is oftentimes interchangeable.

Many Transitional Housing programs are subsidized and are income based. Income based transitional housing generally charges 30% of your income for rent when you do have income. Contact the transitional housing facility to see if this applies.

Services provided at transitional housing facilities varies from substance abuse treatment, to psychological assistance, job training, domestic violence assistance, etc. The assistance provided varies, but it is generally affordable and low cost housing. Read the descriptions of each of the transitional living locations for more detailed information. Transitional housing facilities also may or may not assist with alcohol and/or drug substance abuse treatment.
