Mission Statement

Providing Access to Help to Improve and Save Lives.

Description

Providing Access To Help (PATH) began on the campus of Illinois State University in 1971 as a drug hotline. The service quickly grew to provide crisis response and later to add community resources and referrals.

PATH is accredited by the American Association of Suicidology and the national Alliance of Information and Referral Systems.

In 2009 PATH became a pilot site for 2-1-1 in McLean, Livingston and DeWitt Counties. PATH will be adding additional counties to our 2-1-1 calling area throughout 2012.

We average over 100,000 calls annually.

Over the years of service to the community our scope and services have widened but our underlying mission remains the same - connecting people to the help they need.

In addition to the crisis and referral hotline PATH provides services to senior citizens and the homeless.
