Pathlight HOME Selects SureImpact to Demonstrate Social Impact of Housing First Initiatives

COLUMBUS, Ohio, August 10, 2021 — SureImpact, Inc announced today that it has been selected by Pathlight HOME to automate and simplify the process of collecting and sharing outcomes and social impact data for their supportive housing and wrap-around social-service programs.

Pathlight HOME is Central Florida’s first and largest provider of permanent housing for individuals experiencing homelessness. Its Housing First philosophy focuses on first providing individuals safe, permanent housing and then connecting them with needed services to address employment barriers, addiction, chronic mental illness, and challenges associated with disabilities. For close to 30 years, Pathlight HOME has positively impacted its residents’ health, outlook on life, and economic well-being. In addition, its residents’ use of costly public systems (i.e. jail and emergency rooms) is drastically lower compared to unsheltered individuals, providing cost savings to the community.

“Pathlight HOME has been dedicated to providing high-quality, impactful services to our residents and the broader community since our founding in 1992,” said Babette Allen, President of Pathlight HOME. “Having all of our data in SureImpact, and access to real-time insights will help us learn from and improve our services, prioritize interventions, and access additional funding to continue improving the quality of life for individuals in our community.”

“Pathlight Home has a history of being data driven and focusing on continually improving the programs and services they provide for the community. SureImpact will automate the process of data collection, saving valuable time and giving case managers a holistic view of their clients’ needs,” said Sheri Chaney Jones, president and founder of SureImpact. “SureImpact will also help Pathlight HOME understand the aggregate impact of their programs and services and increase their social return on investment in Central Florida.”
