Homeless Outreach

Our PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) program utilizes specially trained staff and volunteers to connect seriously mentally ill homeless with psychiatric treatment and housing.

To identify mentally ill homeless clients, we engage as many homeless individuals and families throughout northern Arizona as possible, building trust and distributing information and life-sustaining items such as tents, sleeping bags and water. We make referrals, transport clients to mental health treatment or shelter, but above all, we treat the people we encounter as human beings deserving of dignity and compassion.

Our outreach efforts include all of Coconino County, primarily focusing on the areas in and around Flagstaff, Williams and Page. We also conduct outreach in parts of Yavapai County, including the areas surrounding Cottonwood, Camp Verde and Sedona.

We search for these vulnerable people where and when they need us—on the streets, under bridges, in the deserts and forests, even in snow storms.
