Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH)

Providing outreach, engagement, and referral services for individuals experiencing homelessness in Oxford County

Bridging the Gap Between Mental Health and Homelessness

We support homeless individuals struggling with mental health or substance use, and currently unconnected to resources. We provide short-term intensive outreach, engagement, and case management services and connect clients to resources for food, housing, social security, medical care, substance use treatment, and longer-term mental health services.

Eligible individuals enrolled in PATH receive:

  • Six months of case management services focused on how to help you succeed.
  • Support, advocacy, and linkage to resources in the community.
  • May include food, shelter, assistance with Social Security benefits, educational or vocational resources, physical and mental health supports and/or substance use treatment.

You Can Help

You can make a difference in your community, too.

We’re looking for people who want to help their neighbors and be part of something bigger than themselves. Our residents have successfully faced many challenges, but they still need support.

They need you to give them hope and show them that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

Together, we can change lives and create brighter futures.
