The Path

Citrus County Homeless Shelter and resource center, specializing in caring for the addicted, the abused, the homeless, and the poor; preparing them to be stable, productive members of the community. They are located in four adjacent houses in Beverly Hills, where they can provide safe shelter for program participants. Each participant is assessed to determine their needs. The Case Management Program helps them focus on life skills training and work ethic so they can get back on their feet and work towards independence. The supervised work programs are an important part of the process. The Path operates two bargain stores, an offsite wood shop, and a 15-acre vegetable farm. Throughout the program, participants receive Christian-led group counseling, Biblical discipleship, chapel services and bible studies.
