From Suffering To Healing With PathForward Medical Care.

Tim was homeless for many years and would come to the PathForward Day Program on occasion. Like many others experiencing homelessness, he was not able to receive the medical care he required. When Tim entered the HSC he connected with the medical team at PathForward, and there he received the attention he needed desperately. Unfortunately, due to serious complications from a simple sprain, he had to undergo an amputation of his right leg.

Partner Spotlight: AFAC

The AFAC and PathForward collaboration has a long history. In the early 90’s, PathForward shared offices with AFAC in South Arlington. Today, AFAC is a critical partner, serving as the food supplier for the Homeless Services Center and many of our clients in housing who have limited income. Their generous support provides PathFoward with nutritious food items for the full production kitchen at the HSC, where we provide three meals a day for our clients. This partnership alleviates the burden and expense of purchasing food for the Center, allowing PathForward to ensure financial support of other life-saving programs for our clients.
