Outreach & Access Center
Mark P. became homeless following an acrimonious divorce. In the midst of a hostile child custody battle, he was admitted into the PATH Achieve Glendale Emergency Housing program. Within three weeks he secured a temporary job with Labor Ready that turned into a permanent assignment paying $14 per hour. His Employment Case Manager not only assisted Mark with gaining employment, but facilitated his move into a two-bedroom apartment that CalWORKs is subsidizing for one year, and helped him retain an attorney to advocate for him in the custody battle. Mark now has a home, a job, and partial custody of his 5 year-old son.
The Access Center is where we connect people who are homeless to the housing and services needed to get out of homelessness. Our outreach staff use agency vans to go to people who are on the streets. If you see someone in need of help, please call our main number, (818) 246-7900, and we will send an outreach case manager out to the location.
If you need help getting back on your feet and into housing you may apply for case management to assist you in meeting your goals. To apply for services, please call (818) 246-7900 for more information or come to the Access Center at 437 Fernando Court in Glendale, Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. until 11am.

“An employment search is difficult, even under the best of conditions, but when one is homeless, it seems like an almost insurmountable task. PATH Achieve gave me a solid foundation from which to see – and secure – employment.” - Deryl
