The PATH program provides outreach and engagement services to homeless persons with mental illness and/or co-occurring substance abuse disorders.
PATH strategies include identification of individuals in need, screening, development of rapport, offering support while assisting with immediate and basic needs and, most importantly, referral to and follow-up of those appropriate resources.
Literally Homeless persons are those individuals who are:
- Sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation, such as cars, parks, sidewalks, abandoned buildings or the street;
- Sleeping in an emergency shelter;
- Staying in a hospital or other institution, if the person was sleeping in an emergency shelter or another place not meant for human habitation immediately prior to entry into the hospital or institution;
- Graduating from, or timing out of, a transitional housing program for homeless persons;
- Victims of domestic violence.
- On the verge of being homeless
Are you homeless or at-risk homelessness, have mental health needs or just want help with your substance abuse?
