Chamber Member Spotlight: Pathway Homes of Florida

Homelessness affects nearly 5,000 Central Floridians.  The Osceola Chamber member Pathway Homes of Florida is a nonprofit working to prevent and end homelessness.

“We make home possible for people facing a lot of challenges and connect them with services they need to recover their lives,” explained Sylisa Lambert-Woodard, CEO, Pathway Homes. “We are excited to engage with The Osceola Chamber and the local business community to help more struggling families and individuals succeed.”

By partnering with the Central Florida Homeless Services Network to use funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Central Florida Foundation, Orange County, the City of Orlando, and other public and private partners, Pathways helps chronically homeless families and adults with severe mental illnesses, substance abuse disorders, and/or other co-occurring disabilities find permanent, stable housing and receive services they need to recover and move forward.

To educate, advocate, and raise funds to provide mental health services and help prevent homelessness, Pathways Homes of Florida is holding its 2nd annual DUCK RACE on Friday, June 10th at 8:30am. Pathway Homes invites chamber members to sponsor and/or attend this quacky race being held at Island H2O Waterpark. In addition to a variety of dignitaries, Tom Sorrells, News 6 Chief Meteorologist, will serve as Race Emcee.

Sponsor either a jumbo duck, neon duck, duckling or a special Orlando Magic Mo Bamba duck and cheer them on in-person or virtually as 5,000 ducks race down the lazy river. Ducks range from $5-$100. Those sponsoring a duck will receive half off admission to the park during the 2022 season. All proceeds will go toward Pathway’s efforts to provide housing and supportive services to those experiencing homelessness and mental illness.
