We believe that permanent, safe and affordable housing is critical to recovery from mental illness. In San Mateo County, we provide affordable housing for over 300 clients. Caminar works closely with the Housing Authority to assist clients in accessing federal housing subsidy programs such as Shelter Plus Care, Section 8, and Aftercare. When subsidized programs are not an option, we work with local property owners and property managers to locate low cost housing than can be shared by two or more clients living together. Staff work closely with clients in their apartments to help them maintain them.
