Building a Partnership

05.28.2010

Martha’s Table has a new partnership with Pathways to Housing.

Pathways to Housing
Seeks to transform individual lives by ending homelessness and supporting recovery for those with psychiatric disabilities. They believe housing is a basic human right, and aspire to change the practice of homeless services by:

Providing immediate access to permanent independent apartments, without preconditions
.
Setting the standard for services driven by consumer choice that support recovery and community integration
.
Conducting research to find innovative solutions and best practices for those who suffer from mental illness and homelessness.

How Martha’s Table Helps
Martha’s Table provides grocery baskets and clothing once a month to Pathways clients to help with their immediate needs of food and clothing. Providing these items as a part of Pathways permanent supportive housing is an effort to be a part of the solution of homelessness, one person at a time. This partnership is still young, initially we started by giving away about 47 grocery baskets a month within the first 2 months that number has almost doubled to our current 82 baskets a month. Pathways to Housing, Housing First Program services over 700 people. With the support of donors and volunteers we could eventually work to provide grocery bags to all Pathways Housing First clients.
