Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) 1999 Exemplary Program Initiative: Frederick Community Action Agency, Frederick, MD
Frederick Community Action Agency (FCAA) of Frederick, Maryland, first opened its doors in 1968. The agency is located on the south side of Frederick, a neighborhood with a history of poverty and related social problems. Although it's located in a city of about 50,000 people, FCAA serves all of Frederick County, a traditionally rural area with a large population of farmers.
One of 13 PATH-funded local providers in Maryland, FCAA received $19,500 in PATH funding in FY 1999 - half of its total budget for serving homeless people with serious mental illnesses. FCAA served about 6,000 clients in FY 1999. Of those, about 200 were homeless people with serious mental illnesses utilizing services funded by the PATH program. (PATH)
