Pathways Center receives grant

Haywood Pathways Center in Waynesville is the recipient of The John William Pope Foundation’s 2018 Joy W. Pope Memorial Grant in Human Services. 

Pathways Center will use the one-time, $100,000 grant to help fund the construction of an emergency/short-term shelter for homeless families. Increased need and a local motel’s closing expedited the project. When completed, it will be the only emergency housing in Haywood County for homeless women with children and will be able to accommodate up to 10 families at a time. 

“Haywood Pathways Center is extremely honored to receive this prestigious grant,” said Haywood Pathways Executive Director Mandy Haithcox. “We look forward to expanding to include moms and kids, so that they can also benefit from services to help break the cycles of homelessness and build solid foundations for the future.”
