The PATH program is designed to provide a full range of mental health services, primarily intensive case management services, psychiatric medication evaluation and follow-up to 30 Severely Mentally Ill (SMI) homeless indivduals. These services can include providing funding for housing, emergency housing and one time rental subsidies as indicated by the consumers' needs within the fiscal limitations of the budget.
Our philosophy operates from a wellness and recovery perspective in an effort to empower all of our consumers to be ideally self-directed
We work closely with our consumers to engage them in achieving the services they need such as permanent housing, receiving SSDI if appropriate, linkage to county employment services for those that are able to work and referral to educational institutes as appropriate. Inerent in all that we do is to keep consumers from being homeless or being psychiatrically hospitalized.
