Haywood Pathways Center Shelter

Haywood Pathways Center provides overnight and/or short term shelter for adults who are in crises or chronically homeless in Haywood County. We are open year round and accept men and women over the age of 18. The shelter does not accept anyone under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. We are unable to accommodate anyone who is determined to be a danger to self or others, but will assist in finding an appropriate facility and transportation.

Haywood Pathways Center has the capacity to provide shelter for 30 men and 30 women. Guests have access to hot meals, showers, hygiene items, clothing and laundry facilities. All guests participate in center activities – devotion, prayer, bible study, and chore teams for dorms, kitchen, dining room, laundry, and grounds maintenance. Dorms are closed from 8:30 AM- 4:00PM each weekday.

Cold Grace Program — During the winter months, Haywood Pathways Center implements the Cold Grace Program for temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Any man or woman, without safe shelter for the night, who is alcohol and drug-free, will be accepted and permitted to stay, and/or return, for an unlimited number of nights until the weather has improved and safety can be assured.
