Lawrenceville Family Celebrates Completion of Home Ownership Program

August 2017

For Clarence and Elese Johnson, the green two-story house that they now call home has a deeper meaning than just being a place with four walls and a roof that they can live in. It’s a chance to bring stability and permanency into their lives, as well as the lives of their six children.

Shocked by seeing the number of homeless families in Gwinnett County on the rise, employees at the Lawrenceville Housing Authority set out to work on the problem last year.  They came up with Pathway HOME, a housing program founded on the principle that given the right tools — and perspective and rules — needy families can forge out a better life for themselves without simply getting government assistance. As Lejla Slowinski, Executive Director of the authority, puts it, “We’re trying to get to the underlying cause of homelessness.”


April 2014

A single mother of three children juggled the rigorous demands of childcare with a full time job. But then she had to move from the home they occupied because of unsanitary living conditions. She continued to work but needed help. Then she found Pathway HOME, a new nonprofit initiative by the Lawrenceville Housing Corporation (LHC) which is a nonprofit arm of the Lawrenceville Housing Authority (LHA). Pathway HOME helps employed parents work toward home ownership. It combines affordable rental housing with individualized support services allowing homeless families with children the opportunity to work toward permanent housing through self-sufficiency.
