When Jessica Souto unexpectedly lost her job, then her apartment, she didn’t know how she would support her three young children. Then she found the compassionate encouragement and practical tools she needed at Pocono Area Transitional Housing (PATH), which provides temporary housing and individualized support services to homeless Monroe County families. 

“The staff at PATH became a surrogate family to me and my children during our stay,” said Jessica, as she glanced over at PATH’s Executive Director Sharon Taylor.

“They not only provided for my family’s immediate needs of shelter and food, but also helped me proactively plan for the next chapter of our lives. The services at PATH assisted me in working toward my goals, which included finding a permanent place to live and also learning how to save money for the future. 

“I’m so thankful that when I and my children had nowhere else to turn, PATH was there for me.” 

PATH received $75,000 from the 2016 Pocono Mountains Community Fundraiser.
