Caminar was built on a commitment to improve community-based support services and opportunities for people with disabilities to live and work in the community. We believe that providing support services which enable people in their recovery process to live independently and self-sufficiently, in accordance with their ability and choice, goes beyond clinical solutions. It is essential that people with disabilities are afforded the same quality of life opportunities as those who are not disabled.

With industry leadership comes the opportunity and responsibility to make a positive contribution to the future of our communities. We feel strongly that the support services that Caminar provides for people recovering from a disabling illness such as a mental health disability or a developmental disability not only advance our mission but also contribute to the social and economic development of our communities. We believe the people we serve have a great deal to contribute to our communities if they are given the opportunity.

Looking toward the future, Caminar’s mission, values, and goals remain consistent with the vision on which the organization was founded over 50 years ago. At Caminar, we are committed to continuing the pursuit of excellence in providing support services for people with disabilities—as well as our employees and the communities we work in. We’re proud to support our local communities!

Caminar for Mental Health believes that every person with a mental health disability is entitled to the highest quality of care in their community. Every day we meet the challenging and diverse needs and goals of thousands of people suffering from severe and chronic mental illness, because on the journey from crisis to independence, nothing should stand in the way of treatment that makes life livable.
