What we DoWe use a housing-first approach in our work, meeting each person where they are, and providing housing and support tailored to their unique needs.

Our continuum of services ranges from Street Outreach to Permanent Supportive Housing, creating pathways home for thousands of New Yorkers who are experiencing or at-risk for homelessness every year.

What is Housing First?

Today’s homelessness crisis stems from a persistent shortage of safe and affordable housing options. At Urban Pathways, we believe that every person experiencing homelessness, regardless of their housing background or personal history, is ready for immediate housing placement and can attain stability with person-centered case management and support.

Embracing a housing first methodology, Urban Pathways tailors its services to effectively address the needs of those we serve and the broader New York City community. This approach is centered around our believe that having a secure and affordable home is essential for each person. By integrating housing with personalized support, we empower those we work with to improve various facets of their lives, including their physical health, mental well-being, substance use, and employment prospects.

    Extended-Stay and Permanent Supportive Housing

    Our supportive housing offers both extended-stay and permanent programs. All programs are designed to help homeless adults move into and remain in housing they can call their own. All program sites offer individualized case management. Programs include congregate residences with onsite rehabilitative and supportive services, and scattered-site apartments for individuals who can thrive with less-intensive support services.
