A Commitment to the
Development of Affordable Housing
In 2007, Urban Pathways implemented a “housing first” approach through our outreach and drop-in
center programs. Our primary goal was and still is to help single adults move rapidly and directly
into housing from the street.
To ensure that clients who are willing to accept permanent housing have a place to live and to support the Citys
plan to reduce chronic homelessness by two-thirds, we established an original goal of developing 200 new units of
affordable, supportive housing.
Thanks to an increased commitment from the City, State, and private sector
to end chronic street homelessness, we anticipate placing 1,000 units of housing in operation by 2017.
