Who We Are

People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) is a non-profit organization that has been serving our community since 1983, providing services to the homeless and disadvantaged individuals of San Juan County.

On average, PATH provides services for over 800 clients staying at the shelter an estimated 20,000 nights per year, and serves over 30,000 meals through our Daily Bread Program.

The Emergency Shelter was opened in 1984 by the San Juan Council of Community Agencies of Farmington, New Mexico and in 1992 the organization became People Assisting the Homeless, Inc. or PATH. Throughout the years the shelter has undergone many changes and is now assisting the homeless person with a comprehensive program which works to address the needs of the homeless in our community.

It is our vision to “provide opportunities for homeless individuals and families to transform their lives by learning to believe in themselves and realize their potential.”

Through activities which support the mission and vision we hope to reduce homelessness in our community which can improve the lives of future generations.
