Our Path Home Programs

 

CATCH is committed to collaboration. We know that we cannot end homelessness alone. We need your help. CATCH believes in collective impact, where people and organizations intentionally and meaningfully collaborate to implement a communitywide system of care.

 

Our Path Home is the local public-private partnership working to end homelessness in Ada County. This partnership embraces service models and philosophies that embody that permanent housing is the solution to homelessness and that housing is healthcare.

 

On behalf of this partnership, CATCH operates Our Path Home Connect and Outreach.

Our Path Home: Connect

 

Our Path Home CONNECT is a partnership operated by CATCH in Ada County, that brings together housing and service providers and governments to stand above any one program’s brand in achieving a community where everyone is stably housed.

 

It is the access point to the homeless services system; at this access point, each household experiencing homelessness is invited to participate in a Housing Planning session, where all resource options will be discussed and, if necessary, the household will be placed on a prioritized access-list, based on the length of time they have experienced homelessness and the severity of their service needs.

Our Path Home: Outreach

 

Our Path Home Outreach works to build rapport and develop relationships with people experiencing homelessness. We prioritize helping people who are experiencing unsheltered homelessness and sleeping on the street to connect them to the supports they need to access emergency shelter, services, and housing.

"We were at the bottom, hopeless, and left with no options and CATCH reached out and lifted us up and showed us we can succeed."
