The Path Shower Program is a creative way to meet the needs of those living in the desert while building trust. Delivering showers, access to do a load of laundry, small clothing exchange for damaged clothes, and a continental breakfast helps build relationships that lead to positive steps addressing the root causes of their homelessness and a path to recovery.
Our Shower Program is open for PATH participants and un-sheltered neighbors. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m; with the last shower being at 10:30 a.m.
We do offer coffee and a small amount of breakfast items. If you would be interested in helping with this program, please contact our volunteer coordinator at email@example.com
Across the United States, approximately 500 local organizations offer an array of essential services and supports that may not be supported by mainstream mental health programs. In total, PATH staff outreached to 139,515 individuals in 2017 and enrolled 73,246 PATH-eligible clients with the following services:
Screening and diagnostic treatment services
Habitation and rehabilitation services
Community mental health services
Substance use disorders treatment
Referrals for primary health care, job training, educational services, and housing
Housing services as specified in Section 522(b)(10) of the Public Health Service Act
Some PATH providers offer all of these services, while others focus on providing one or two of them. In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be homeless or at risk of homelessness/live in a shelter and you or any of your family/household members must be facing mental illness.
