PATH offers at-risk Valley residents with "a hand up" when needed
Created under the McKinney Act, Programs to Assist in the Transition from Homelessness or PATH is a grant program that offers support services to individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders. PATH is a federal program that helps mental health consumers come out of homelessness. PATH case managers interact daily with the entire San Luis Valley Community, area agencies and the La Puente homeless shelter guests and staff.
- Case management, referrals for diagnostic treatment, rehabilitation services, mental health services & referrals for alcohol or drug treatment
- Linkage to health services, job training, educational or low income housing services
- A possibility one time rent to avoid eviction or a onetime security deposit.
Homelessness is often seen as an urban problem; however, homelessness exists even in the rural communities of our San Luis Valley.
