Since 1986, Pathways of Hope has led a community effort to end homelessness for our struggling neighbors in North Orange County. Through different types of housing programs – including shelter, rapid re-housing, permanent supportive housing, and prevention – our agency has become a leader in housing services in North Orange County, ending homelessness for hundreds of our fellow community members and neighbors in need each year.
Our shelters provide safety and stability to our community’s most vulnerable residents. We operate two shelter sites, one in Fullerton and the other in Anaheim. Our case managers work alongside the residents at our shelters and guide these families and individuals back to housing stability over 30-45 days. We work at a deep level with these households to overcome housing barriers such as economic challenges to help our New Vista shelter residents secure and maintain permanent housing.
509 people (including 326 children) escaped homelessness at our shelters last year.
PREVENTION AND DIVERSION
We provide consultation services and resources to people on the brink of homelessness to help our neighbors stay housed and to provide options to keep them from entering the homeless services system. We work with households to find practical solutions, including finding family resources, sourcing more affordable housing options, and linking to other available resources. When resources are available, we provide rental assistance in order to prevent eviction due to economic challenges
275 People (including 103 children) were prevented or diverted from becoming homeless through our Prevention & Diversion programs last year.
Rapid Re-housing provides Service Navigation and Rental Assistance resources to quickly and efficiently move homeless individuals and families from shelter or from literal homelessness back to sustainable, permanent housing. This housing model also provides a variety of support services to ensure that each household is able to maintain their housing never become homeless again.
152 people (including 93 children) found permanent housing through our Rapid Re-housing programs last year.
PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
Permanent Supportive Housing Services are reserved for community members experiencing Chronic Homelessness (regular and frequent episodes of homelessness while struggling with a physical or mental disability). This housing model is designed to end homelessness by providing permanent housing and supportive services. Residents can retain their housing and supportive services as long as necessary to ensure that they never return to homelessness.
22 People found permanent housing through our Permanent Supportive Housing programs last year.
