Harnessing the Power of Partnerships for Student Veterans
The Pathway Home, San Francisco VA Health Care System Team Up

Yountville, CA, May 15, 2017 – The Pathway Home, Inc. (TPH) is excited to announce the finalization of its formal partnership with the San Francisco Veterans Affairs (SFVA) Health Care System’s Student Veteran Health Program. This strategic alliance creates a continuum of care for student Veterans served at TPH by having VA psychologist Jennifer Gonzales divide her time as a treatment team member onsite at TPH and on campus at Napa Valley College. 

Having a VA psychologist on site is key to meeting the needs of student Veterans struggling to manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, or PTSD so that they can more successfully navigate academic life. This partnership also helps Veterans connect with VA health care and specialty services as appropriate.

“This public-private partnership allows TPH to benefit from the breadth and depth of knowledge held by the VA while remaining nimble and responsive to Veteran needs as an independent nonprofit,” said Christine Loeber MSW, LCSW, Executive Director of The Pathway Home.

The Pathway Home is well-versed in public-private partnerships, having a long-standing collaboration with the California Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Home of California, Yountville. Through its partnership with the Veterans Home of California, Yountville, TPH utilizes a campus building for its program, serving the latest generation of Veterans. The Pathway Home also partners with local community organizations such as Bay Area Rotary Clubs and local businesses eager to support Veterans. According to TPH’s Board of Directors Chair Dorothy Salmon, public-private partnerships are the way of the future.

“The community can’t do it alone and the VA can’t do it alone, we need each other” Salmon said.

About The Pathway Home: The Pathway Home is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing educational, professional, and clinical support in a residential setting to post-9/11 Veterans pursuing academic or vocational endeavors who are transitioning back into the civilian world following military deployment. The Pathway Home remains self-supporting through private donations and foundation grants.
