The number of homeless women and children in Birmingham, AL was both startling and growing in the early 1980s.
Five years later, a small group of women from the Cathedral Church of the Advent (St. Mary’s Guild) partnered with Greater Birmingham Ministries (GBM) to fill that critical gap, believing that “wrap-around” services were needed during daylight hours to assist homeless women in their return to a life of dignity and self-sufficiency and created Pathways Woman’s Shelter. Pathways continues to offer a range of transitional and long-term services for homeless women and children.
Through its downtown Day Center, the agency provides food, clothing, showers, laundry facilities and case management. Pathways also provides a program called “Invest in You” which merges key elements of the former Employment Readiness and Fiscally Fit programs while meeting the needs of our ever-changing population.
Our team at Dan Carlisle Agency is on a mission to raise awareness of the support and programs available to women in need and also raise funds to support them with any necessities they might inquire during the holiday season.
You can also visit our Rewards Program to learn how we can donate on your behalf.
Dan Carlisle and team!
