Haywood Pathways Center
invites you to be a sponsor for our
6th Annual Empty Bowls
to be held on Thursday,
March 21, 2024
at Long’s Chapel in Waynesville.

Haywood Pathways remains a self-funded faith-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our vision is to provide “a community where all our neighbors have access to safe shelter, nutritious food, and pathways to flourish.” This vision informs our foundational mission to, “in Christ’s name, provide food, shelter, and individualized supportive service for Haywood County residents.”

Haywood Pathways Center is dedicated to providing meals to those who are hungry, both on campus and via Holy Cow Food Truck. On campus at Haywood Pathways, emergency shelter and short-term housing is offered to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Haywood County. Over the past 9 years, more than 400,000 meals have been served and we have provided approximately 150,000 nights of shelter to over 220 individuals annually (including men, women, and children).

Haywood Pathways aims to help those in crisis break destructive cycles and construct new positive foundations. We prioritize the basic needs of food, shelter, and safety while also offering person-centered and holistic case management. This support empowers residents to access resources and services to achieve recovery, learn life skills, rebuild relationships, and obtain income and housing.

Haywood Pathways is grateful for your generous sponsorship, which enables us to continue providing critical services to those in need in Haywood County. 

We sincerely appreciate your support!
