Pathways to Care is a program of Catholic Charities of Central Florida that is dedicated to providing health, housing and hope to Central Florida’s most vulnerable homeless population. Last year alone – over 200 clients were served and 57,600 pounds of food was prepared. This nonprofit 501(C) (3) organization provides short-term recuperative care and support services for homeless individuals in need of temporary housing while recovering from an acute medical illness or injury. As a licensed assisted living facility, Pathways to Care is focused on helping their residents achieve greater health, self-sufficiency and housing stability.

Catholic Charities of Central Florida is the largest non-profit social service organization in Central Florida. Their mission is to provide vital social services for people in need regardless of their religious, social, or economic background, to improve lives of individuals, families and the community. These social services include emergency financial assistance, food, medical and dental care, transitional housing, and affordable housing programs.
