What is PATH?
PATH is a street outreach team, that works in collaboration with community partners, to locate the most vulnerable in the local community, who are on-the-street homeless and have a serious mental illness.
Our PATH team actively assists eligible participants with supports and services including:
- Identifying and securing housing, utilizing a Housing First Approach
- Actively referring to supportive services to include physical, mental health and substance use treatment
- Linking with mainstream benefits and resources (as eligible) such as social security, health insurance and state benefits
- Working in collaboration with other programs and resources to address short term and long term housing assistance
The PATH team meets potential program participants through canvassing the community and street outreach. A calendar is developed in conjunction with community partners in both Oakland and Macomb counties. These calendars are updated regularly and will be posted here as well as on the local CoC websites: Macomb Homeless Coalition and Alliance for Housing.
