PATH has been at the forefront of the movement to end homelessness since 1984, prioritizing housing first, while providing customized supportive services for the most vulnerable individuals and families.  Through a two phase project, PATH will construct PATH Metro Villas Town Square, consisting of five, multi-story buildings (three of them new), which will provide 187 new units of permanent housing, 88 beds of interim housing and four connections centers for housing, employment, health and veterans services.  The new Metro Villas will have a maximum occupancy of 280 people since some units will be shared.  Public funding is paying for the three new housing facilities.  PATH is raising philanthropic funding for program start-up and reserves and to remodel two existing buildings for the interim housing and the PATH Mall.  A Keck grant will support the renovation of the PATH Mall to better accommodate administrative and program staff and access to housing placement and employment services.  Once the campus is completed, PATH expects to serve 3,000 vulnerable community members and residents at Town Square annually.
