Throughout five counties in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, Caminar is a community-based nonprofit mental health services agency with over 50 years of successful experience assisting adults with disabilities as they strive to lead productive and meaningful lives in the community.  Caminar believes in promoting healthy societies by respecting one another, listening, assisting, strengthening communities, and celebrating diversity.  We accomplish our mission by providing our clients with opportunities to live with dignity and independence.

The philosophy underlining all Caminar services across our range of mental health treatment centers and programs draws heavily upon the concepts of the therapeutic community and the principles of social rehabilitation—the provision of a positive and therapeutic social environment, which encourages individual self-determination and movement towards independent living.  Caminar’s programs are closely linked to local community mental health, social services, educational, vocational, and recreational programs, both public and private.
