People Assisting the Homeless (PATH)
Founded in 1984 by a collaborative of local churches, synagogues, businesses and concerned individuals, People Assisting the Homelessâ€™s (PATH’s) mission is to end homelessness for individuals, families and communities. With the opening of PATHâ€™s LA Center in 2002, the organization was able to bring 98 interim housing beds together with the PATH Mall program, a multi-service center where homeless individuals can easily access over a dozen supportive services in one location. Since its founding, PATH has grown into a consortium of five agencies that focus on rapid rehousing, street outreach, permanent supportive housing, and wraparound services to end homelessness for the most vulnerable populations.
The Outreach Navigator and Move-in Assistance program places chronically homeless individuals in permanent housing by collaborating with local homeless coalitions, social service organizations, local landlords, political leaders, faith groups, and community members.
