Pathways’ mission is “to end homelessness for women and children through hospitality, housing, and hope.” We are a private, not for profit, United Way agency that helps homeless women and children put their lives back together. Below, you can watch Robin's journey from a life of drugs and prostitution to a life of independence.

Here’s how we help:

We supply emergency services for homeless women and children – showers, clean clothes and hot meals. Last year, our Day Center served more than 1,200 women and children.

We provide both short-term transitional and long-term transitional housing for women and children.

We offer a Safe Haven for chronically homeless women with a mental illness. Our Safe Haven is the only program of its kind in Alabama.

We assist with life plans so women can identify their individual paths to self-sufficiency.

We teach life and employment skills, such as how to handle money, how to use a computer, how to interview, and how to operate in a business environment.

We assist with transportation, child care, and job searches.

We teach homeless children about decision-making, anger management, and character education.
