Steps to Pathways Breakfast

Steps to Pathways Breakfast - You're Invited

Wednesday, November 1st – Join us as we gather to support individuals in need.  We’ll have a delicious breakfast while supporting our mission of providing mental health services—starting with safe, stable housing—to individuals who are often marginalized by poverty and inequity.

Help us get them HOME.

Pathway Homes relies on financial support from the community and countless volunteers to provide comfortable, safe homes and support for those with serious mental illnesses.

Recovery is possible and happens every day.

Pathway Homes helps make recovery possible for those with serious mental illness.  We currently provide community-based homes and support services for nearly 600 adults.

In His Own Words

My name is Nick. I live in Pathway Homes’ Assisted Living Facility, Stevenson Place. I have been living here since the facility opened in 1999! Before Stevenson Place, I lived with my parents in Annapolis, Maryland. It was a difficult time for me, especially since I was dealing with anxiety and schizophrenia.

In the past, I experienced a number of anxiety attacks that were worrisome. When I’m anxious, I feel like the walls are caving in on me. It is my brain’s way of alerting me; however, it can be extremely exhausting. Often times, my natural response is to pace to soothe my nerves. Thanks to Pathways, I have developed healthy coping mechanisms, such as meditation. By meditating I can focus on my breathing and what is happening around me. It is a great way to relax. I would like to start journaling because it would help me practice mindfulness. It can also help me with my memory since I tend to forget things.
