An astounding 75% of clients are homeless at the time of their referral to Caminar. Fortunately, our Supported Housing program in San Mateo works tirelessly to combat this challenge through strong partnerships with the local Housing Authority divisions and landlords. We assist clients in accessing federal housing subsidy programs such as Shelter Plus Care and Section 8, and when subsidized programs aren't an option, we work with local property owners to find our clients low-cost, permanent housing. Almost 100% of our Supported Housing clients have kept their residences for at least one year. That is one whole year they may have otherwise been on the streets without a place to call home or without a place to start their recovery.
Our Supported Housing program is available to existing Caminar clients.
