PATH Program (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness)

This is a Federally Funded program that includes a specialized team of Case Managers providing assertive outreach services to homeless adults suffering from a severe persistent mental illness and/or dual diagnosis. The goal of the PATH Program is to provide services that will enable persons who are homeless and have serious mental illness to acquire housing while engaging in formal mental health treatment to improve their functioning.
