SAMHSA's PATH Program Supports Services for People Experiencing Homelessness

November is Homeless Awareness Month and SAMHSA is doing its part to fill gaps within existing community resources playing a crucial role in communities’ strategic plans to end homelessness.

In fiscal year 2020, SAMHSA’s Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) grantees enrolled 60,000 individuals and connected nearly 40,000 to community mental health services. Nearly 40% of these individuals reported co-occurring disorders and approximately 39% of these individuals were experiencing chronic homelessness.

The PATH program was created to reduce or eliminate homelessness for individuals with serious mental illnesses and/or co-occurring substance use disorders, who are experiencing homelessness or are at imminent risk of becoming homeless. More on the PATH 2020 Annual Report Data is available at: https://pathpdx.samhsa.gov/public?tab=searchdatareports
