Homelessness is a situation, not an identity.

Path of Life has 10 programs serving those affected by poverty and homelessness in Riverside County. We offer three shelter programs in the City of Riverside and have a number of housing programs throughout Riverside County. Our premier outreach team traverses the entire County to find and connect those living on the street with community based resources to help them safely get back on their feet. Our additional stabilization services include child care, behavioral health services, employment development, and a myriad of supportive services that help our shelter guests and housed participants rebuild their lives.
