The Pathway Home’s Refocused Mission and New Leadership
Now Accepting Student Veteran Applications

Yountville, CA, May 5, 2017 –The Pathway Home, Inc. (TPH) is proud to announce it is welcoming post-9/11 student Veterans into its structured living environment, providing a place that understands post-deployment challenges and offers wrap-around mental health and case management services to its residents.

Driving this refocused mission on student Veterans is The Pathway Home’s new Executive Director, Christine Loeber, MSW, LCSW, who possesses more than 25 years of corporate, non-profit, and clinical experience. Most recently, she served as a clinician at the Santa Rosa VA Outpatient Mental Health Clinic and as acting-Assistant Chief of Community Based Outpatient Mental Health for the San Francisco VA Health Care System.

“We learned Veterans were having a harder time than their just-out-of-high school peers finishing their education or vocational programs,” Loeber said. “We’re intervening earlier to help prevent common transition challenges from developing into chronic, disabling conditions.”

The immediate responsibility of finding a job or pursuing a degree, coupled with managing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other post-deployment challenges, can be a difficult transition to navigate alone.

“When you get out, there’s a lot of loneliness,” said Cassidy Nolan, President of the Veteran Student Organization at Napa Valley College. “You don’t have your battle buddies anymore. You don’t have your barracks mate. The Pathway Home fills that void, in a very positive way.”

Program applications, currently being accepted on a rolling basis, can be obtained by visiting our website at: http://thepathwayhome.org/
