Pathway Homes provides services in a variety of program types across the continuum of care, including services to individuals in their own homes. All Pathways’ programs and services are licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Assisted Living Facilities are also licensed by the Department of Medical Assistance Services, and almost all programs are additionally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. All Pathways programs require individuals to be (a) at least 18 years old, and (b) have a documented diagnosis of severe mental illness and/or substance use disorder.
All Pathways programs utilize a Housing First approach. This means that we provide housing that is not contingent on acceptance of our services. The type of program and intensity of services available to individuals are determined by whether or not the individual is homeless, and how long he or she has been homeless. Regardless of homelessness status, the housing and services we provide are based on the unique needs of each individual and in collaboration with that individual.
Programs requiring homelessness
Pathway Homes has a variety of community housing programs that are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD requires individuals entering these programs to meet the following eligibility criteria for this type of housing and the supportive services that go with them:
- Have a documented disability (Pathways requires severe mental illness and/or co-occurring substance use disorder),
- Currently homeless (living in a shelter, on the street, or other places not meant for human habitation), and
- Homeless in Fairfax County, Falls Church or the City of Fairfax
Priority for these programs is given to individuals are chronically homeless. Those who have been:
- Homeless continually for the past year, or
- Homeless four times over the past three years.
Individuals in these programs can expect to receive supportive services ranging from one hour a week to 24 hours a week, based on individual needs.
Programs NOT requiring homeless
Pathway Homes operates several programs independently or through contract with the Fairfax-Falls Church County Community Services Board (CSB). These programs do not require individuals to be currently homeless or have a history of homelessness.
Individuals in these programs can expect to receive supportive services ranging from one hour a week to 40 hours a week, based on individual needs.
Prince William County
Pathway Homes owns and operates townhomes in Prince William County that provide housing and supportive services to individuals in the community. Individuals in these homes can expect to receive services an average one to two hours a week, based on individual needs.
Assisted Living Facilities
Pathways Homes operates two Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in Fairfax and Prince William Counties that provide 24-hour supportive mental health care. Individuals entering these programs may or may not be homeless but must be assessed as needing Residential Living level of care.
Stevenson Place ALF (Fairfax County)
Pathway Homes manages this program under a contract with the Fairfax-Falls Church CSB. Home to 37 men and women, this state-of-the-art facility provides 24-hour supportive mental health care as well as comprehensive services for medical, nursing and personal care needs.
Russell Road ALF (Prince William County)
Pathway Homes manages this program under a contract with Prince William County and serves 8 individuals. The program is funded through the Prince William County CSB Health Planning Region 2 Partnership Planning Region and serves individuals from Prince William, Fairfax, Arlington, Loudoun counties and the city of Alexandria. This program provides 24-hour supportive mental health care, personal care services, and skill development training. The staffing pattern includes a live-in Recovery Coach.
Support Services Only
Pathway Homes also provides Mental Health Skill Building Services to individuals living in their own homes or with family. This level of services is on the less intensive end of Pathway Homes’ services spectrum. Individuals receive targeted skill building services an average of one to two times per week.
This program has the ability to serve individuals who need housing and services as well as those who are already housed. Medicaid can be billed for these services or individuals, who are able, can self-pay at the current Medicaid rate for these services.
We realize that we may not be able to help everyone seeking housing and/or supportive services, but there are others in the community who may be able to help:
- 211 Virginia
- Northern Virginia Regional Commission Quick Guide Online
- Fairfax County Coordinated Services Planning
