Projects for Assistance in Transitioning from Homelessness

PATH is an outreach program that helps homeless individuals with mental illnesses living in emergency shelters or in places not meant for human habitation in Anchorage, Alaska. 

Funded by a Federal Grant through SAMSHA.

Successfully housed 16 people to this date.

Choices gained the PATH grant in July 2018.

Evidenced-based, culturally competent and strengths-based outreach techniques are used to engage individuals who are homeless and are experiencing mental illness.

PATH aims to re-integrate consumers with financial, medical, employment and housing services by connecting them with services either internally or externally.


PATH can occasionally help with resources towards housing, as well as emergency items needed for survival such as hand-warmers, water, snacks, and warm clothing.

If you are an individual who could utilize assistance from the PATH program, please fill out the referral form and
email, fax, or turn in a hard copy.
