Frequently Asked Questions
Path Assist is a free program that matches you with the help you need to access resources in your community. A local Community Health Navigator (CHN) who knows the resources in your area really well can partner with you to talk about any barriers you might be experiencing when seeking resources like food, transportation, or childcare.
A lot of times it can be confusing to know what programs you are eligible for, how to apply and how to make sure you are getting through to the right person on the other side of the phone. Your navigator can help with all of this. The program is available at no cost to you for the length of time that you are enrolled in the program.
The Path Assist program is completely FREE for participants. It does not cost anything.
Path Assist cannot give money or resources directly to clients. However our well-trained Community Health Navigators will do their best to connect you to the services that can help get you what you need.
Getting the resources we all need can be really hard. Sometimes, what keeps us from getting these resources is beyond our control. For example, we may not be eligible for a service or the service may not even exist. Sometimes, we need help finding a way around the barriers. Path Assist CHNs will work with you closely to understand what you have tried before, what has been helpful, and what was not worked. Then, they will do their best to help you navigate the barriers and get you the care or resources that you need.
The information that you share with us is completely confidential and protected through HIPAA-compliant secure software. However, there are a few times when we might need to share your information and we will inform you of this every time. The first case is if it would be helpful for your care if we coordinate with other providers who are assisting you. In these cases, we will always get your permission first if we need to speak with someone else on your behalf.
The other case is if you might be in danger of hurting yourself, hurting someone else, or being hurt by someone else. If you share any of these situations with us, we may need to turn to someone else who can help make sure that you are safe. We will discuss it with you first.
