Located in Lowell, Pathfinder is a nationally recognized program that serves homeless individuals who often have a psychiatric disability and other challenges. Pathfinder has been providing on-site housing and services as well as community outreach since 1996. The program targets individuals who have been unable to access services and treatment needed to begin the process of reentering mainstream society.
Pathfinder has 12 shared housing units for single, homeless men. Residents are provided with a complete assessment of needs and are offered a menu of services including: assistance in selecting and accessing medical and mental healthcare providers, medication management, managing finances, pursuing entitlement benefits and carrying out activities of daily living.
Through a grant funded by the Greater Lowell Health Alliance, Bridgewell outreach staff has been going out to homeless camps scattered across Lowell to connect homeless individuals with the services they need to get back on their feet.
