Experiencing homelessness without help can be very stressful and intimidating especially when facing mental health challenges. The Coalition’s PATH (Project to Assist in the Transition from Homelessness) 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
- Vocational 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
- Behavioral Health Case Management and Individual Psychotherapy
- 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
Adults with a primary diagnosis or history of major mental illness who are experiencing homelessness at time of admission and who are seeking housing as an individual or as a couple (not with dependent children). There is no referral necessary.
To begin the application process, you will need to see a case manager. Please come in during our walk-in hours.
Unfortunately, the wait lists for housing programs are long, often 18 months or more. However, the sooner you begin the application process, the sooner you will obtain permanent housing.
Monday through Friday at 8:00 am
Please be aware that due to COVID-19 restrictions we are only able to see the first 8 people each day.
It is helpful, but not required, to bring originals or copies of the following items:
