Christine Simiriglia, MA
President & Chief Executive Officer @Pathways to Housing PA
Christine Simiriglia established Pathways to Housing PA in Philadelphia in 2008 and launched the Philadelphia Furniture Bank in 2014, providing furnishings to individuals and families moving out of homelessness. In 2016, Pathways became the first Housing First program to use a scattered site/harm reduction model to work with people who are street homeless with a substance use disorder, primarily opioids. That same year, Pathways established a medication-assisted treatment program, in house, to fill a treatment gap made larger by the opioid epidemic. Chris has spent the last decade traveling throughout the US speaking at conferences and symposiums and providing technical assistance to organizations and communities struggling to establish Housing First programs. She believes that great outcomes are achievable for everyone if providers offer choice, kindness and opportunity to the people they serve.
