• The mission of Pathlight HOME (incorporated in 1992 as Grand Avenue Economic Community Development Corp.) is to change the lives of low income individuals and especially the homeless, by providing affordable housing and economic opportunities.   In our 25th year, we continue to be inspired by our founder, Rev. Fred Maxwell, whose vision was to solve homelessness through housing and job opportunities.  Rev. Fred Maxwell instinctively believed in “Housing-First,” long before it was adopted by communities around North America as the critical innovation needed to truly end homelessness.

    A decade after Rev. Maxwell’s passing, Pathlight HOME has become Central Florida’s largest provider of permanent supportive housing for the homeless.  Today, over 600 residents receive safe and dignified housing as they interact with a compassionate team providing housing and services for the homeless and especially those who are chronically homeless.


    Looking for a corporate team-building opportunity?  Do you represent a faith-based group planning a service opportunity? We are planning to refresh and renew Maxwell Garden Apartments this October.  Help us create a beautiful home for Central Florida citizens who are recovering from homelessness.  We need your help!  This paint blitz is a hassle free volunteer opportunity for groups large and small.  Just show up and go to work.  Our project coordinator will train and equip your team.  Space for professional development meetings and lunch packages are also available upon request.  Contact Brian @ 407-360-6032.


    Chronically homeless Floridians need a roof over their heads before addressing mental and physical health challenges and addictions.  Once a permanent home is provided, Pathlight HOME offers much more than a roof.  A dedicated team of case managers, social workers, and property management staff provide compassionate and dignified support services—like assistance to medical care, mental health services, addiction treatment, goal setting, along with recreational and community building activities.

    Pathlight HOME provides its more than 600 formerly homeless residents with housing and supportive services through two apartment complexes and three supportive services programs. Maxwell Terrace Apartments and Maxwell Garden Apartments, The rent for each unit includes utilities.

    Our three supportive services programs for the Chronically Homeless include Homes for New Beginnings, Safe Haven and Restore. Residents receive case management, nutritional support, help with budgeting and goal setting, assistance with support services including transportation and access to mental health and addiction treatment.
