PATH and SOAR: An Effective Partnership

The PATH and SOAR programs directly complement each other’s work. Both programs assist adults who have serious mental illnesses and/or co-occurring substance use disorders to recover from homelessness. This issue brief explores ways that PATH and SOAR can—and do—work together.

The Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) and SOAR programs directly complement each other’s work. The PATH program’s objective to connect individuals to mental health services and stable housing is more easily accomplished when people who are homeless have access to the income and health insurance that comes with Social Security benefits. SOAR provides PATH case managers the tools necessary to expedite access to these benefits, resulting in improved housing and treatment outcomes.
