What is PATH?
PATH is the “front door” to help for people who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, and have a serious mental illness.
Our PATH team actively assists participants in connecting with supports and services including:
- identifying and securing housing, using a Housing First model
- mental health and substance abuse services
- health resources
- mainstream benefits and resources (where eligible) such as disability, social security, health insurance, and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services benefits
- other resources in the community
The PATH team meets participants wherever they are in Oakland County, whether it’s under a viaduct, in a car in a parking lot, or in a park. We connect with those in need who are not being served by traditional resources and services.
