PATH Program

Good Samaritan Haven’s PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) Program provides services to those experiencing homelessness with serious mental illness and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.

Outreach, at its best, helps people move toward a life of greater health and personal stability. ~Ken Kraybill

Good Samaritan Haven’s PATH Program provides outreach and case management services to link clients to vital supports such as shelter, health care, mental health treatment, financial assistance…and ultimately stable housing.

SOAR (SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery) is a core component of the PATH Program. SOAR increases access to Social Security disability benefits for people with behavioral health issues experiencing homelessness. It can be a challenge for people experiencing homelessness to gain access to Supplemental Social Security Income/Social Security Disability Insurance (SSI/SSDI) benefits. For those individuals who also have mental illness, medical impairments, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder, the challenge can be even greater.

Good Samaritan Haven’s PATH Program increases access to these benefits for people with behavioral health disorders who are also experiencing homelessness, as well as for those returning to their communities from jails and hospitals. Contact us to learn more about our PATH and SOAR Program.
