Pathways to Success After Homelessness (Pathways) provides supportive housing and mental health services for those with psychiatric disabilities and long-term or cyclical homelessness. Staff uses a harm reduction “whatever it takes” approach to support members reach their desired goals. Families with children are offered culturally-diverse supportive services so they can stay together and be active members of their community.

Pathways is funded by MHSA as a full-service partnership that provides comprehensive, integrated mental health services, including housing, for 360 individuals a year. Pathways serves children and their families, young adults aged 18 to 25, adults 26 to 59 and older adults, aged 60 or more.

Program outcome goals are for clients to obtain and maintain housing; reduce hospitalizations; reduce use of emergency departments, reduce incarceration. Children will attend school or quality day care; transition age youth and adults will be employed whenever appropriate at the level of their ability; and older adults will be actively engaged in ways that enhance their independence and decrease isolation. Additional outcomes include ensuring linkage to appropriate benefits and linkage to medical and dental care.
