Project for Assistance in the Transition from Homelessness (PATH)
The PATH program provides outreach to homeless adults on the streets, in shelters, and in other non-traditional settings in Snohomish and Whatcom counties. Program staff screen individuals for needed resources and services including financial entitlements, insurance, food, shelter, medical care, veterans assistance, and mental health and substance use disorder treatment.
The program also assists in the identification of housing options, assists with related applications, and provides support regarding obtaining and maintaining housing. The program provides transitional pre-treatment community support services, referral, advocacy, and linkage to needed ongoing behavioral healthcare and other community resources.
The PATH program is administered by the Center for Mental Health Services, a component of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), one of eight Public Health Service agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
PATH includes the following services:
- Supportive counseling
- Psychiatric assessments

- Medication management
- Housing services
- Assistance in obtaining medical coverage and financial benefits.
This service is available in Snohomish & Whatcom counties.
