About Austin Pathways:
Austin Pathways provides scholarships to eligible residents who are living in HACA’s housing communities and this support enables these individuals – most of whom are the first in their family to attend college – to build the knowledge and skills need to be economically successful and independent of public assistance. Over the past 17 years, more than 400 renewable scholarships have been awarded for a total of over $1 million invested.
The journey toward self-sufficiency is different for each individual and family. Diverse paths of varying lengths all lead to greater independence. HACA and its team support HACA residents and their unique paths – connecting young adults and seniors to services that serve as a springboard for economic independence.
