Project Outreach is a component of the Richard Hall Community Mental Health Center’s Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services Department that provides case management services to people with mental illness who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness. It is also referred to as Somerset County PATH, which stands for Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness. The program works with Somerset County residents and links them to mental health, entitlements, and housing.
The program staff will customize the program services to suit the needs of the individual. A service plan is developed with the consumer to assist in linkages to mental health services, physical health services, community resources, and permanent housing. The program also assists with applying for entitlements such as temporary housing, Food Stamps, Welfare and SSI/SSDI. Once immediate mental health needs are stabilized, the program helps to apply for permanent housing and provides up to 6 months of case management services to assist in maintaining that housing successfully.
