Pathways to Housing PA

Pathways to Housing PA (PTHPA) was founded to positively transform the lives of people experiencing mental health challenges and chronic homelessness by supporting self-directed recovery and community integration. As an alternative to a system of emergency shelter/ transitional housing progressions, PTHPA’s Housing First model is simple: provide housing first, and then combine that housing with supportive treatment services in the areas of mental and physical health, substance abuse, education, and employment. PTHPA currently serves approximately 300 participants living in scattered site individual apartments throughout the city of Philadelphia.
