The Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) Program is a homeless outreach program which serves residents of Thurston and Mason Counties.  PATH aims to be the first point of contact for adults experiencing homelessness (or at risk of homelessness), who are also suffering from serious mental illness and may also have co-occurring substance use challenges.  Through a combination of assertive outreach and ongoing case management, PATH staff meet individuals “where they are” and assist in obtaining housing, rental assistance, financial resources, employment, educational goals and other essential needs.

What our outreach team can support with:

  • Case management
  • Help you obtain state IDs, apply for healthcare, supply essential items.
  • Peer support with recovery goals

We provide essential items onsite: Free soap, shampoo, toothbrush/toothpaste, and laundry cards, we have a clothing and shoes closet as well.

We can assist connecting with:

  • government and community benefits (WA birth certificates, connecting with DSHS, SSI assistance, mobile phone set-up
  • housing/shelter (overnight shelter connection, finding transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, and financial help with rent & utility bills)
  • Seeking detox and/or inpatient treatment for substance use
