MAP (Multi-Agency Access Program) is an integrated intake process that connects individuals facing housing, substance abuse, physical health and/or mental health challenges to supportive services. MAP Point at POV is a physical intake location for the community’s homeless population. If a family or individual needs other immediate services, they will be referred to the appropriate agency partner.
Each MAP Point is an access point to help individuals and families identify their needs and get connected to the services and resources they need. MAP Points are located throughout urban and rural areas of Fresno County to serve individuals at convenient locations. Because the circumstances and needs of each individual are unique, there is no single solution for everyone; each person receives support to develop a custom plan that will have a higher chance of long-term success.
