The National Center on Family Homelessness (The National Center) was started through an unusual partnership. In 1987, David Jordan, then editor-in-chief of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, met in Boston with Ellen L. Bassuk, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Both were concerned about the growing number of homeless families in America, and wanted to do something. Dr. Bassuk had conducted ground-breaking research in the mid-1980s documenting the devastating effect of homelessness on mothers and children. Mr. Jordan believed that Better Homes and Gardens, which reaches 36 million American adults each month, had the power to educate the public about this emerging tragedy. In 1988, Dr. Bassuk and Mr. Jordan joined forces to start "The Better Homes Fund," what would eventually be called The National Center on Family Homelessness, which was established as a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization and non-endowed public charity.

The Pathways model has been remarkably successful in addressing chronic homelessness. Since its founding, Pathways has housed more than 600 people in New York alone, and the program maintains an 85% retention rate even amongst those individuals not considered "housing ready" by other programs.
