Executive Director of Haywood Pathways Center in Waynesville, NC. Worked with the homeless population since 2007 and working with those in poverty and in crisis since 1999. 85% of those staying at Pathways identify mental health and/or substance use issues, unemployment and/or release from incarceration as the reason(s) they are currently experiencing homelessness. Pathways provides food, shelter, short-term housing and peer support services for men, women and moms with children experiencing homelessness in Haywood County. Our goal is to not just provide food and shelter, but an opportunity for life transformation that breaks cycles to build new foundations for the future.
