Pathways to Your Future is a non-profit 501(c)(3) program that’s committed to increasing the number of clean and safe shelter, transitional and permanent housing in the Los Angeles area. We collaborate with other non-profit organizations like Veteran Social Services, Inc. (VSS) and Volunteers Of America (VOA), to provide facilities and services for the homeless and to enhance their core skills and capabilities.


To provide comprehensive education, health, and human services to reduce homelessness of underserved youth, adults and families, while promoting their development and enriching the communities of Los Angeles County.


PTYF envisions that every homeless individual should experience greater expectations, self-realization, and hope for the future through a clearly defined path that leads to self-reliance and healthy, high-quality lifestyles.
