Haywood Pathways Center is a faith based 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization in Haywood County that provides adult and family emergency shelter, a short term residential program for individuals seeking life transformation, and a community kitchen providing meals to those living in the shelter and within our community.
Our services are open to residents of Haywood County regardless of age, race, gender, religion or nationality.
Haywood County Residents who are sober and drug free are never turned away for a short stay, but participation in the short term residential program requires the commitment to create and work on an individualized goal plan with our case management team which addresses 6 focus areas:
Haywood Pathways Center is supported by individuals, churches of all denominations, community organizations, businesses, private foundations and corporate grants who believe all people are God’s people.
Thank you for your wonderful support of our 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Dinner. With such wonderful community support we raised almost $14,000 at our SOLD-OUT event. The funds you helped raise go toward our work in feeding hungry families, women, and men. Let’s hear it for a fun “takeout” event that changes lives. A tremendous “Thank You” goes out to our volunteers; you are the best! The pottery provided by our local potters was beautiful and much appreciated by all. I am already excited to see the wonderful handiwork they will provide next year. Thank you also to the restaurants and bakeries that graciously helped us “fill bowls” this year. Thanks also to WNC Social Media Buzz and Beth Brown Photography for the tremendous professional support.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

We can’t do it without YOU.
As we work together to meet the needs of Haywood County’s less fortunate we depend on people like you to help achieve our goal of true life transformation. Whether a one time gift or a monthly partnership…Thank you!
We continue to need and accept financial contributions, but did you know we also accept everyday items that are used to meet the personal care needs of our guests. Please see our list for the most current requests.
We have seen lives transformed—through prayer, staff support, gifted volunteers and access to resources- such as individualized Case Management, life skills training and job search assistance. We strongly believe, with your help, we have a chance to make a positive impact on residents of Haywood County who suffer from homelessness. Our goal is to provide a hand up rather than a hand out.
The Myr-Ken Family Dorm finally opened June 21st, 2019. Thank you to the community and innumerable donors who helped make this dream a reality!
Become a financial partner through a one time gift, or reoccurring monthly donation. Every little bit makes a difference and goes directly toward our mission of helping those seeking life transformation learn to ‘break cycles and build foundations’.
Haywood Pathways Center is looking for volunteers to work with staff and guests at the Waynesville campus on Hemlock Street. There are many opportunities to choose from, with flexible hours and time involved. Adults 18 and older, or supervised older youth, from all walks of life and backgrounds are invited to apply.
