Pathways to Housing DC

Pathways to Housing DC is a unique agency that provides permanent housing and a range of specialty support services to single adults experiencing chronic homelessness in the District.

We do not accept direct referrals for our Housing First programs. Instead, we participate in the community’s Coordinated Assessment and Housing Placement (CAHP) system for prioritizing housing and services. Most shelters, case management, and outreach providers are conducting housing assessments as part of CAHP. For a listing of participating agencies or to schedule an assessment, please click here.

If you are currently experiencing homelessness and are looking for help, please click here for a list of resources in Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD.

If you would like to be connected to mental health services, please call the Access HelpLine at 1 (888) 7WE-HELP or 1 (888) 793-4357 provided by the DC Department of Behavioral Health. This 24-hour, seven-day-a-week telephone line is staffed by behavioral health professionals who can refer a caller to immediate help or ongoing care.

To refer someone for outreach who is homeless and in need of assistance in the DowntownDC Business Improvement District, you may contact the DowntownDC BID Dispatch at [email protected] or 202-624-1550.

To refer someone for outreach who is homeless and need of assistance in the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District, you may contact the Golden Triangle BID Dispatch at [email protected] or 202-293-9580.
