Aurora Mental Health Center’s Homeless Services is on the front lines of tackling the persistent and difficult issues surrounding homelessness in Aurora.
Aurora Homeless Services reaches nearly 600 individual clients a year through our core services and work with community partners. Key to our efforts are availability, accessibility and outreach. Through our PATH (Project Assisting Transition from Homelessness) program, we operate a drop-in center, where people can come in and obtain what they need, when they need it. This includes food, clothing, hygiene, medical and other supplies. An important component of the drop-in program is access and availability to information and referrals, individual therapy, case management, limited community based services and linking to medical and employment services. Our Transition Care Services are integrated throughout our programs, enabling us to move more people toward necessary treatments and improve the chances for long-term housing security.
But the work does not stop at our door. Our Street Outreach Team is out in the community, engaging people where they are living under the most challenging circumstances. We focus on people’s immediate needs and safety, building relationships and trust. Through proactive engagement, we are able to provide information and assistance in accessing services that can start the process of improving the lives of those we connect with every day. Our team partners with multiple sites, providing services that complement their offerings. These sites include the Aurora Day Resource Center and Aurora Warms the Night.
