Project to Assist in the Transition from Homelessness (PATH)
Experiencing homelessness without help can be very stressful and intimidating, especially when facing mental health challenges. The Coalition’s PATH Team is here to help you navigate through the many options, including connecting you with resources for temporary shelter, permanent housing, benefit programs, and other services to help make the journey easier.
PATH assists adults living with mental illness move from homelessness into permanent housing and access the resources you need to support recovery and maintain long-term housing stability.
Through PATH, you can get help with:
- Case Management
- Obtaining and Maintaining Permanent Housing
- Vocation and Educational Referral
- Assistance in applying for benefits (Food Stamps, AND, SSDI, SSI, etc.)
- Referrals for Representative Payee services
- Advocacy, support, and problem solving in connection with social service agencies
- Mental Health
- Assessment and Evaluation
- Crisis Intervention
- Referrals for mental health and substance use treatment
- Education and support regarding mental health and recovery
Working toward independence, community connection, and renewed sense of purpose
- Peer Support Services
- Opportunities to meet, individually and in a group, with staff who have experienced situations and challenges similar to yours and who can provide support and guidance as you work toward your goals.
If you are interested in PATH services, please come to our office at 2100 Broadway any weekday between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. A staff member will meet with you to learn about your current situation and needs. S/he will also explain the PATH program and answer your questions. If after this initial meeting you decide you would like to enroll in PATH, the next step would be to meet with a Case Manager to determine whether the PATH program best fits your needs.

Adults with a primary diagnosis or history of major mental illness, who are experiencing homelessness at time of admission or at imminent risk of becoming homeless, and who are seeking housing as an individual or as a couple (not with dependent children). There is no referral necessary.
