This grant to PATHS (Program of Affordable Transitional Housing and Services) provided case management services to low-income and homeless mothers and their children.  The program provides single mothers a safe and stable living environment in which to strengthen their families, while achieving educational and personal goals to become independent and self-sufficient. Women accepted into PATHS are usually self-motivated although struggling with homelessness, poverty, abuse and past addiction. PATHS provides support, training, therapy, childcare, and parenting classes to create new lives for the women in this program and their children.
