Entering its 45th year, PfP provides innovative and effective health services to people living with the greatest and most complex mental health challenges, but the fewest resources. PfP provides individualized, intensive services to 1,800 people, and assists nearly 3,400 more people through short-term interventions or referrals to appropriate resources. The people we serve are in various stages of recovery from serious and persistent mental illness.

In addition, many have a history of homelessness, substance use, chronic medical disorders, trauma and/or behavioral disorders. PfP's services are individualized to address treatment goals identified through client and team collaboration. Examples include coordination of all psychiatric and medical care, assistance in obtaining and maintaining benefits, homeless outreach, housing support for people living independently in the community, agency-owned and operated housing with on-site services for people who benefit from additional support, a day program to support social/recreational, health/wellness, and vocational/educational goals, supported employment, an array of therapy programs, outpatient substance use programs and services specifically for children and families. The organization provides or coordinates all necessary services and places a special emphasis on housing as a prerequisite to additional recovery goals. In addition to presenting complex psychiatric and medical challenges, nearly all of our clients live at or below poverty levels.
