Path-Now is a new creative, accessible, and unique mobile application that enables individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) to safely and easily connect with community service providers electronically in California. Path-Now was the vision of the CEO of Adjoin, a 501(c)3 organization, who saw a critical need for there to be an interactive statewide system directory of all community service providers for individuals with I/DD to access needed services.
Path-Now provides individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD), a family member, or a care provider, to create a free profile where the individual can answer questions related to types of service needs, preferences regarding the service or services searching for as well as preferredorganizational characteristics. Then, with the click of a button, individuals can instantly see organization profiles listed in order of percentage of match to individual’s profile responses and read about each potential service provider. Individuals can then choose to connect with organizations by clicking theconnect button for that organization. Based on if the organization has a subscription or not, the individual can either chat directly with the organization or will receive a notification to contact the organization using contact information in the organization’s profile.
Organizations who provide services for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in California can claim their profile in Path-Now or request to have a profile created. Once requests are received, reviewed, and approved by Path-Now, organizations can choose a subscription plan, and based upon the subscription plan chosen, will be able to review and update information in basic fields to all fields, including uploading photos and videos, as well as have access to the Path-Now chat feature.
