PATH offers at-risk Valley residents with “a hand up” when needed

PROGRAM TO ASSIST IN THE TRANSITION FROM HOMELESSNESS (PATH)

PATH is a transitional program designed to assist people who are at risk of being homeless or those that are currently homeless (shelter, couch hopping, getting out of jail etc.) that are dealing with a mental illness or have behavioral health issues. PATH case managers interact daily with the entire San Luis Valley Community, area agencies and La Puente homeless shelter guests and staff.

PATH provides:

  • Outreach Services
  • Advocacy and Support for those at risk of being homeless or those that are currently homeless that have behavioral health issues.
  • Referrals for:
    • Screening and diagnostic treatment services; habilitation and rehabilitation services, community mental health services, alcohol or drug treatment services and case management.
  • Linkage to:
    • Primary health services, job training, educational services, and relevant subsidies or low income housing services.

Homelessness is often seen as an urban problem; however, homelessness exists even in the rural communities of our San Luis Valley.
