Pathways Announces the Release of V5.16.57

This release addresses updates relating to the Client Housing Status.

Several fields are updated on the General Information, Program Enrollment, Program Discharge and Program Record Editing pages (via the Programs command on the Client Visit menu). These fields are: As Of Date, Housing Status, Chronic Homeless, Zip Code (Quality field and Zip Code itself), Prior Night’s Residence and Length of Stay.

In all cases, Client Housing Status is kept separately for each agency, so only Client Status fields entered by the agency in session are used. Client Housing Status fields entered by another agency are ignored.

General Information Page update:The most recent Client Housing Status entered by the agency in session on the General Information Page displays on the General Information page.

Program Enrollment and Program Record Editing:During program enrollment, the most current Client Housing Status will show on Process Program Enrollment Information page as the default value.

Program Discharge and Program Editing:
On the Program Discharge page the most current Client Housing Status recorded by the agency will show as the default values. (Although only Housing Status is shown, all other Housing Status values will be stored and visible on the General Information page – as long as the Program Exit Date becomes the most recent “As Of Date”).

PATHWAYS COMPASS New Training Registration Process

We now have a new website for the training registration process. The process remains the same for the webinars; however, there is one difference that we wanted to point out for the new onsite registration process: Once you select the link for the training, the system will redirect you to When you land on this page you will have the option to register for the selected training from a drop down menu. You will notice that once registered there will be a reference to having purchased a ticket for the training. Please ignore any comments or references to “tickets” as these references are embedded into the design of the page.

If you have further questions or need assistance, please contact the Support Team at 404-639-9933 option 2, or 866-818-1032 option 2

Volunteers Conduct Atlanta/Fulton/DeKalb Homeless Census

ATLANTA - Hundreds of volunteers, on a cold, rainy night, canvassed the streets of DeKalb and Fulton counties and the city of Atlanta in an effort to count the homeless population of the area.

The homeless census, which is conducted every two years, is sponsored by Metro Atlanta Tri-Jurisdictional Collaborative on Homelessness (Tri-J), a partnership of government representatives and service providers in Atlanta, Fulton County and DeKalb County. The project is managed by Pathways Community Network, and our research team will author a study based on this count and a large scale survey conducted afterwards.

Read more about the count in The Champion.
