Pathways Drop In Center – How to Help

Did you know that out of the thousands of homeless adults living in Central Florida, 30-40% of them are living with mental illness?

Pathways Drop In Center, located just off of 1-4 on Orange Blossom Trail, has been providing a safe space for daily essentials and community to this niche group for over 28 years. Here, mental health consumers receive essential services that many take for granted like laundry, hot meals and showers. The only criteria for service at Pathways is having experienced mental illness.


With a combined passion for serving the underserved and guiding those who are unhoused into housing, Pathways Drop In Center and Pathlight HOME have merged as of July 2021.

The Future of Pathways Drop In Center

We are proud to share that since acquiring Pathways Drop In Center we have made improvements on the space from painting to new air conditioning units to new furniture. Still, there is much to do.

Our future goals include additional building improvements, an outdoor community space, mental health support staff and telehealth services.
