Services for the Homeless


The “Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness” program, or PATH, is a federally funded program whose purpose is to provide services to adult individuals with serious mental illness, including those with co-occurring substance abuse disorders, who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. The main goals of the PATH programs are to identify individuals who are homeless and have a mental illness and assist them in accessing a variety of services, include treatment and support for the individual’s mental illness, access to drug and alcohol programs if appropriate and assistance in obtaining entitlements as well as temporary and permanent housing.

DSAMH was recently recognized for the PATH program by the PATH National Technical Assistance Center as a finalist for the 2008 PATH Exemplary Practices Recognition Award. For more information about the PATH Program, and details on the recognition, please visit the PATH page.
