This November, Caminar’s FCS Division will open the first peer respite home in Santa Clara County.
This program will offer a safe, supportive, and voluntary option for adults living with mental health conditions who are experiencing or at-risk of a psychiatric crisis. Across the country, this model of support has proven effective as a healing, strengths-based alternative to hospitalization.
And we’re looking for a dedicated team to make this new program a success for the community!
