Glidepath Program

Glidepath Program

The Glidepath program at Skookum offers a person-centered approach to help individuals who are wanting to re-enter the workforce, but are hesitant due to fear of losing their current benefits. We aim to provide individuals with the information and support necessary to achieve stable employment and financial independence.

The program will provide benefit planning services to help you understand how employment can have an impact on your housing, health insurance, and other benefits, so you can make an informed choice about returning to work. This program can also provide a dedicated employment specialist who will work one-on-one with you to provide pre-employment services such as building a resume, interview practice, and finding and applying for jobs. If you are not currently enrolled in the Foundational Community Supports (FCS) supported employment program, you may choose to enroll with Skookum or any other FCS employment provider.

The priority population includes individuals who are enrolled in the FCS supported program, and also receive HEN benefits or have recently lost their HEN benefits. By focusing on this population, the Glidepath program encourages individuals to work and connects them with rental assistance and provides funding to cover approved, work-related expenses. These supports will ensure participants have the opportunity to engage fully in their communities and lead fulfilling lives.
