General Information:
The Pathways Center for families is a shelter program of Greensboro Urban Ministry. Our purpose is to provide homeless families a safe, temporary environment to live while they are searching for other housing.  The Pathways Center shelters 16 families. Each family has a private studio living area. There is no fee to stay at the Pathways Center. Case managers work with families to help them move as quickly as possible back into permanent housing. Pathways Center for families is more than a temporary shelter for parents and their children. It is a place to plan, learn new skills, work with a case manager and share time with a devoted group of volunteers who want the 16 families living in the center to know that they are not alone in their journey back to stability. Eligibility Guidelines:     Must be a resident of the Greater Greensboro area     Must have income (employment, child support, disability, Work First, etc.)     Must have children living with you at the Pathways Center     Must have custody of all the children living with you at the Pathways Center Greensboro Urban Ministry actively works toward a day when no one is without shelter by keeping families and individuals housed and re-housing those who have lost their housing.

We provide the tools and support they need to become self-sufficient again. By assisting individuals and families at the onset of problems, homelessness can be prevented with minimal assistance. Types of help available: Through our Emergency Assistance Program (EAP), financial assistance is provided for costs necessary to maintain housing – utility, water, rent, and/or mortgage payments. Food assistance is also available. People applying for assistance need to bring their photo ID and Social Security number, as well as Social Security numbers for everyone in the household. This information is needed each time clients apply for service. How can people access help? No referrals are needed for food assistance.

Those who need to come after 4:30 p.m.  should call 553-2659 or 553-2660 to make arrangements. Utility/water/rent or mortgage: Due to high demand for services, potential clients meet with an interviewer who reviews their situation.  After being qualified, these individuals receive immediate assistance with past due bills to prevent eviction.
