PATH: Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness
Find food, housing, and mental health resources near you.
PATH does not pay ongoing rent. PATH peer specialists are responsible for assisting all PATH participants in accessing local community agencies and supports that provide this type of assistance. In certain circumstances the PATH Project does have the ability to offer financial assistance to participants for first month’s rent or deposit if the participant can sustain the rent afterwards.
Yes. PATH peer specialists provide outreach and supportive services to all individuals who are homeless or at imminent danger of becoming homeless and have serious mental illness or co-occurring disorder. The PATH Project holds America’s Veterans in high esteem, recognizing that those veterans who are homeless are a priority for outreach and assistance.
While working with participants and landlords, PATH peer specialists sometimes encounter barriers that can slow down the process of accessing housing, including credit/rental history, outstanding utility bills, previous unpaid rent, etc. Depending on the specifics of the situation, it may take longer to secure housing. These barriers can slow down the process in some cases where accessing housing is concerned, i.e., poor credit history, poor rental history, old utility bills, old debts for unpaid rent.
PATH peer specialists have the capability to drive participants to coordinate services with various providers for example mental health appointments, SSI/SSDI appointments, Health and Welfare, and job searches.
