Project Live believes that housing is more than just a roof over a person’s head but also a “home”, and that decent and affordable housing, ongoing supportive services, and employment opportunities are critical to the process of recovery. The agency subscribes to the “HOUSING FIRST” model, and, therefore strives to provide an environment that is supportive of each individual’s steps to wellness and recovery.
The Projects for Assistance in Transitioning from Homelessness (PATH) program is funded by the NJ Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services. PATH is an Outreach Program that engages homeless individuals with mental illness living in emergency shelters or in places not meant for human habitation in Newark.

Evidenced-based, culturally competent and strengths-based outreach techniques are used to engage individuals who are homeless people with mental illness.  PATH aims to re-integrate consumers with financial, medical, psychiatric and housing services. 

Additionally, the PLI PATH Team is a recognized statewide “SOAR”  – SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery -Technical Assistance  trainer for other agencies across New Jersey.  The PATH staff trains case workers at other social service agencies.  The SOAR program is designed to enhance staff ability to increase access to the disability income benefit programs administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for eligible adults who are homeless (or at risk of homelessness) and who have a mental illness and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.

To date, PATH program has successfully placed over 125 individuals who were experiencing homlessness into safe, clean and affordable housing.
