The Permanent Access to Housing (PATH) Framework is the City's updated five year approach to address homelessness in Oakland. The PATH Framework organizes strategies to address homelessness under three major themes:

1. Prevention strategies to keep people from becoming homeless

2. Emergency strategies to shelter and rehouse households and improve health and safety on the street

3. Creation of affordable, extremely low income and permanent supportive housing units prioritized for households experiencing homelessness.
