PATH Homeless Case Management

HOMELESS? You are not alone.

We can help.

If you or someone you know are experiencing homelessness and are also struggling with mental illness and/or substance use, we can help. Together, we will work to find a pathway out of homelessness.

Pathways out of homelessness.

Crisis & Counseling Centers provides services to homeless adults in Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, and Waldo counties through our Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) Program.

Our caring staff provides outreach services to help people who are homeless (living on the streets, in a shelter or place not meant for habitation) and experiencing mental illness, substance use disorders, or co-occurring disorders.

Transportation should never be a barrier to getting help. Our staff will meet people where they are at in the community and provide services and support.


How we help provide stability for adults struggling with homelessness:

We offer and connect eligible individuals with an array of essential services and supports that may not be supported by mainstream mental health programs including:

  • Outreach and case management focused on helping the individual succeed
  • Life skills, support, advocacy and connection to resources within the community
  • Community mental health services
  • Substance use disorders treatment
  • Linkage and referral to resources such as housing supports and services, insurance, income supports, food stamps, medical needs, and employment services and supports.

Eligibility Requirements:

Adult who is experiencing literal homelessness (living on the streets, in a shelter or place not meant for habitation) and has a substance use disorder and/or severe and persistent mental illness living in Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, or Waldo Counties.
