Pathways to Housing

United Way of Northern California has a fiscal sponsorship agreement with Pathways to Housing, an organization that raises and manages funds to supplement homeless citizens in the Redding area as they move off the streets. Pathways to Housing seeks to address a significant obstacle in helping those who are chronically homeless – ensuring funds are immediately available to help move individuals off the street at the same time those individuals are ready to change their circumstances.

Under this model, Pathways to Housing volunteers go into the field, develop relationships with homeless citizens and offer a temporary housing opportunity. Clients must agree to act as responsible tenants, pay toward monthly rent, accept and work closely with a case manager, and be placed on a waiting list for federally subsidized housing.
