History

The Pathway Home, Inc. ⋅ A Brief History

In 2007, The Pathway Home, LLC (TPH) was formed as a project of the Tides Center.

From 2008-2015, TPH served as an intensive residential treatment program focused on treating Veterans specifically suffering with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and other post-deployment mental health challenges. TPH staff remain available to former program participants, as needed and appropriate, for resource referrals and case management.

In 2013, TPH was declared an independent non-profit organization and became The Pathway Home, Inc, earning 501(c)(3) status. The agency’s EIN is 45-5350612.

Late in 2015, the Board of Directors began exploring areas of need specifically affecting returning Veterans in Napa County. The needs of student Veterans surfaced as prominent.

Early 2016, the Board commissioned a needs assessment of today’s returning Veterans. Outcomes illuminated a gap in supportive services for Veterans attempting to balance academic or vocational engagement with civilian reintegration while managing the lasting effects of deployment.

In Spring 2016, given the outcome data of the needs assessment, TPH officially re-focused its mission and began developing a transitional residential program focused on wellness to support the success and reintegration of student Veterans deployed post-9/11.
