About UsWe envision a New York of thriving communities where everyone has a place to call home.

Our MissionCombatting homelessness through housing and support services while advocating for systemic change.

Since 1975, Urban Pathways has remained unwaveringly committed to addressing the complex challenges of homelessness and housing insecurity in New York City. Rooted in compassion and driven by a desire for positive change, our team provides thousands of people annually with secure housing, complemented by pioneering and holistic support programs. With a focus on empowerment and collaboration, we envision a future where every person has access to safe, affordable housing and the resources they need to thrive.

Within our continuum of care, which ranges from Outreach to Permanent Supportive Housing, we meet each person where they are and walk alongside them on their pathway home.

Our Impact

Urban Pathways through the years...

For nearly fifty years, Urban Pathways has been working to ensure that everyone in New York City has a place to call home. We got our start as a coalition of neighborhood centers and settlement houses based on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Today, we’re a thriving human services organization, operating in four boroughs, that delivers a full continuum of housing and services to more than 2,400 individuals every year.
