Caminar Avenida Apartments – Providing Supportive Housing Opportunities for People with Disabilities who have Experienced Homelessness
Completed December of 2007, in collaborative partnership with the Butte County Department of Behavioral Health, HUD and Tri Counties Bank. Caminar’s Avenida Apartments offers affordable, supportive and attractive housing for people with disabilities who have experienced homelessness.
Quality Housing Opportunities
Featuring fourteen housing units, Avenida Apartments are designed for people with a disability who have experienced homelessness. The complex has a community room for groups and recreational gatherings, laundry, maintained landscaped areas and a community garden. Avenidas Apartments has a full time live-in property manager in addition to case management and support services provided by Butte County Department of Behavioral Health. Employment opportunities are also onsite to assist residents in their recovery process to become productive members of the community.
Encouraging Vocational Training Opportunities
By encompassing a vocational training approach, providing employment opportunities onsite (including our social enterprise bike shop facility, along with grounds maintenance and janitorial services vocational opportunities), Avenida Apartments truly promotes independent living and self-sufficiency to its residents.
The model fits perfectly with the Caminar Butte County Region’s goal of building community and enhancing lives for people with disabilities.
