Haywood Pathways Center Adult Shelter

Adult Shelter: Haywood Pathways Center provides overnight and/or short-term (1-3 night) shelter for adults who are in crisis or chronically homeless, and are residents of Haywood County. We are open year round and accept men and women over the age of 18. Each intake has the following requirements- proof of residency, 8 panel urine drug screening, background check, and breathalyzer test.

Haywood Pathways Center has the capacity to provide shelter for 32 men and 28 women. Guests have access to hot meals, showers, hygiene items, clothing, and laundry facilities. All guests participate in center activities – devotion, prayer, and chore teams for dorms, kitchen, dining room, laundry, and grounds maintenance. Adult Shelter Dorms are closed from 8:30 AM- 4:30PM each weekday. However, our dining hall is open 24 hours per day, to ensure that our residents have a safe and stable place to be. 

Exclusions: The shelter does not accept anyone under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. We are unable to accommodate anyone who has been convicted of violent crimes or sex offenses. For safety reasons, we are also not capable to accommodate anyone who is determined to be a danger to self or others, but will assist in finding an appropriate facility and transportation.
