PATHS

In December 2020, CW Solutions was selected as only one of two agencies to operate PATHS in Wisconsin as part of a new five-year grant with the Department of Children & Families. Our PATHS program covers the following nine counties: Adams, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, Oneida, Portage, Vilas, and Wood. Our team began providing direct services to young adults in April 2021.  

PATHS utilizes a Housing First framework with Rapid Re-Housing to provide immediate housing supports and wraparound services to facilitate long-term housing stability for these young adults. Our program’s focus is to empower young adults ages 17-21 with past involvement in the child welfare system and are without housing or at risk of being without housing.

PATHS has five core service elements:

  1. Permanent Connections
  2. Academics
  3. Training and Employment
  4. Housing
  5. Social and Emotional Well-being

We are utilizing a Rapid Re-Housing model to provide immediate housing supports, as well as services, to facilitate long-term housing stability for these young people. PATHS is a companion program to our Transitional Resource Agency for Independent Living (TRAIL) and serves the same population. The two programs work very closely together to provide empowering supports to program participants.
