We address significant barriers for people in housing crisis. Individuals and families are met first at their place of largest need with protection, food, shelter and stabilization services.
The process of restoring begins through compassionate coaching, housing navigation, health care services, and wraparound services that are provided to promote self-sufficiency and family restoration.
Our holistic, community based approach contributes to improving the overall social, economical and spiritual health and vitality of those affected by poverty and homelessness.

Homelessness is a situation,
not an identity.

Path of Life Ministries is a non-profit organization (501c3) providing support services to those affected by homelessness in Riverside County. We are committed to rescuing, restoring, and rebuilding lives by creating permanent solutions and providing the emergency relief, the helping hand, and guidance that people need to get safely back on their feet. With a home, a self made plan, and a network of care, individuals and families in crisis can become sustainable and learn to thrive.
