Annual Report 2016




t the end of each year we take time to reflect on our performance and identify ways to improve the quality of our services and the impact we are having in our clients’ lives. We also consider what is going on in the communities around us and how the field is evolving nationally. We ask ourselves, “How are we adapting to the evolving needs of our clients and communities?” and “How can we deliver the most efficient and impactful services to our clients on their road to recovery?” With these questions in mind, we create plans for the year ahead. Caminar is so much more than just a mental health service provider because we understand the brain and body act as one dynamic system that cannot be treated separately. We place emphasis on providing services to the “whole person” through integrated primary and mental health care; and now by merging with Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley (see page 3 for details), we are expanding the number and diversity of clients we serve and the programs we deliver to those in need throughout the greater Bay Area. In addition to our belief in treating the whole person, we also believe everyone deserves affordable, clean housing; without it, how can someone focus on recovery? We assist clients in obtaining competitive employment opportunities and pursuing higher education. Our supported education program provides clients the foundation to finish advanced degrees, such as a former San Mateo County client, whose story is on page 7. We are blessed to have incredibly dedicated and passionate staff members whose work is driven by a belief in our clients’ potential for recovery. Our board and management appreciate their outstanding efforts. I am fortunate to work closely with our Board of Directors to seek prospective members who are passionate advocates and supporters of Caminar and our mission. On the road to recovery and independence, our clients receive the skills and support they need to succeed thanks to our government funders, generous donors, volunteers, community partners, and Board of Directors. Thank you for making our life-saving work possible. With much appreciation,

Merger Announcement


n October, we announced that Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley (FCS) will be merging with Caminar at the start of 2017. This strategic partnership brings together two Bay Area behavioral health organizations with a shared belief: that by providing a path to recovery, we can strengthen communities and empower individuals to live independently, self-sufficiently, and with pride. The boards of directors of both organizations unanimously approved the merger, under which FCS will operate as a division of Caminar. The merger expands Caminar’s reach in Santa Clara County. Caminar and FCS have similar values and both shared and distinct strengths and skill sets. The services of the combined organization will work together in complementary ways to increase efficiency and impact. With a combined operating budget of approximately $32 million and close to 500 employees, FCS and Caminar look forward to growing our programs for the benefit of more people in the Bay Area.

Caminar: Road to Recovery


or those living with mental illness, paving the road to recovery can seem insurmountable and riddled with uncertainty. Since 1964, Caminar’s mission has been to provide those in crisis with a road map to independence — and accompany them on every step of the journey. We believe that health, home, purpose, and community are the pillars that support an individual’s ability to thrive and live a life of dignity and independence.

CRISIS: Approximately 79% of all clients referred to Caminar are homeless. The majority of clients come to our two crisis residential homes from local hospitals. At the homes, clients benefit from food, shelter, medication support, and intensive case management services, as well as a loving home environment.


MEDICATION CLINICS Psychiatrists, nurses, and licensed psychiatric technicians work with clients to design individual medication plans and provide integrated healthcare.

HOMELESS OUTREACH (HOME)/ ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT (AOT) Caminar’s HOME program provides outreach, supportive, and stabilizing services to those experiencing situational homelessness. AOT was developed out of Laura’s Law and reaches out to people with severe mental illness who are not connected to services. For more information on both programs, see articles on pages 9 and 10.

RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS Each one of Caminar’s residential treatment programs has been thoughtfully created to provide a warm, caring, and inviting environment for its residents – a place to call home – not simply a “residential facility.” • Laurel Creek • Redwood House • Eucalyptus House • Hawthorne House

CASE MANAGEMENT Our Case Management programs assist individuals in meeting their basic needs while fostering empowerment, self-determination, and personal growth. Staff collaborate with each client to create a personalized recovery plan by focusing on life skills. • Full Service Partnership (FSP) • Recovery, Empowerment and Community Housing (REACH) • Comprehensive Case Management • New Ventures • Tahanan • Colma Ridge • Young Adults Independent Living (YAIL)



helly’s* story is about perseverance in the pursuit of a dream. She came to Caminar in her mid-20s and worked with supportive case managers who encouraged her to pursue her educational dreams. She completed her undergraduate degree from Notre Dame de Namur University and in 2016, she completed her Master of Public Administration at Golden Gate University. She was recently was accepted to the University of Southern California’s Master of Social Work and University of Phoenix’s Doctorate of Health Administration programs. As the first person in her family to graduate high school, her higher education accomplishments are remarkable.

SUPPORTED HOUSING We assist clients in accessing federal housing subsidy programs such as Shelter Plus Care and Section 8. When subsidized programs aren’t an option, we work with local property owners to find low-cost, permanent housing. Almost 100% of our Supported Housing clients have kept their residences for at least one year. • Gateway • Laurel Gardens • Serena Village • Avenidas Apartments • San Mateo and Solano Region apartment sites

SOCIAL ENTERPRISES These supportive employment type programs train individuals to get real-life vocational opportunities and also provides low cost services for people on limited incomes. All profits go back into the programs, creating a double bottom line and giving customers a sense of making a social impact. • Olivos Private Care • Sensible Cyclery • Pro Touch • Linden Street Apartments

SUPPORTED EDUCATION Caminar’s Transition to College program collaborates with the College of San Mateo and San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services to provide educational support to students with disabilities and help them attain their educational goals.

JOBS PLUS Caminar fully supports people who want to learn new skills and develop career goals, yet are often excluded from the workforce due to disabilities. Jobs Plus works with individuals to find a job match and then provides job coaching support to ensure an individual’s employment success.

WELLNESS & COMMUNITY INTEGRATION Caminar focuses on a “whole body” approach to recovery. We provide an array of services meant to promote wellness and ongoing recovery from mental health disorders. • Wellness and Recovery Drop-In Center • Bridges to Wellness (BTW) • Friendship Circle • Art Therapy Program

2nd Annual Mental Health Symposium


Ight for a just cause; LOve your fellow man; LIve a good life,” was the credo that inspired Mr. William Bowers Bourne, to name the historic Filoli Gardens, site of Caminar’s 2nd Annual Mental Health Symposium on May 25, 2016. The evening’s focus was information on cutting edge research. Guests filled the hall to listen to compelling presentations by mental health experts Steven Adelsheim, M.D. (Stanford); Leanne Williams, Ph.D. (Stanford); and Stephan Sanders, BMBS, Ph.D. (UCSF). Each speaker discussed groundbreaking research in early detection testing methodologies that are, establishing more precise

2016 Cammie Awards


n May 20, Caminar Solano Region celebrated Mental Health Awareness Month with the 5th Annual Cammie Awards. “Walk a Mile in Their Shoes” was the theme of the event, which brought together over 100 guests, including Solano County Behavioral Health staff, consumers, community members, and Caminar employees, at Vallejo’s Foley Cultural Center. Guests were welcomed by Chris Kughn, Executive Director of Caminar’s Solano Region, who applauded the hard work of the recipients and explained that the Cammie Awards provide the opportunity for the honorees to be acknowledged by their community. Caminar’s Chief Operating Officer Karen Gianuario followed by talking about Caminar, our history, and services. Honorees were recognized in seven categories representing milestones on the journey to a life of wellness: clean and sober living; maintaining independent housing; wellness and recovery skills; social skills/ abilities; achievements in education; achievements in employment; and achievements in healthy lifestyle. Eight clients and three volunteers were presented with Cammie Awards. Solano County Supervisor Erin Hannigan provided certificates of recognition. Guests were moved by stories of gratitude and overcoming adversity, and the momentous afternoon was capped off with a special lunch.

diagnoses and treatments tailored to each patient, and the role that genetics plays in mental illness. Lastly, Karan Singh, Co-founder of, discussed utilizing technology in behavioral healthcare delivery. A special recognition from San Mateo County was awarded to Caminar CEO Chip Huggins for his generous contributions and dedication to the organization, thereby declaring May 25, 2016, “Chip Huggins Day.” If you missed the event, videos of each presentation are available on our website. Please join us again on Thursday, May 18, 2017, at the beautiful Filoli Gardens as we continue this important series. Visit for the most up to date information on this event highlighting innovations in mental health care.

Assisted Outpatient Treatment


eveloped after San Mateo County’s adoption of Laura’s Law in the summer of 2015, our Assisted Outpatient Treatment (AOT) program engages and provides services to individuals with mental illness who are not currently receiving any treatment, and who may be unable to live safely and stably in the community. Our AOT program provides 24/7 intensive mental health services, including case management, psychiatry, medication management, benefit and housing support, and life skill development, as well as guidance and support to help people reach their recovery goals. The AOT team is composed of a clinical services manager, psychologist, deputy public guardian, social worker, and peer support workers.

Homeless Outreach Program


tarted in 2015, Caminar’s Homeless Outreach, Motivation and Engagement (HOME) program provides supportive and stabilizing services to homeless individuals in Solano County who are also struggling with mental health challenges. Jenna (pictured on the cover) and her family are among the people helped through the HOME program. Jenna and her daughter, Shawna, were living in a homeless shelter and desperately hoping that housing would come through for them. When their stay at the shelter expired, Child Protective Services explained that they would need to take Shawna away until Jenna could secure safe housing. This broke Jenna’s heart, yet she never lost hope of regaining custody. An outreach worker for the HOME program met Jenna on the street one day and invited her to participate in HOME’s services. With HOME, Jenna had the support she needed as she worked hard to establish a better environment for her daughter. With the assistance of HOME and numerous work programs, she obtained a part-time job and secured Section 8 subsidized housing, both of which allowed her to live with Shawna again. Now she is ready to start engaging in more services to address the many challenges she had to suppress while struggling to live from day-to-day. To date, we have assisted over 150 clients and families like Jenna and Shawna and are increasing the number of individuals we can serve each year. This year we will expand the program by adding a case manager, a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), and an additional Psychiatrist. We are encouraged by the success of the program and the support of Solano County as we continue to serve vulnerable individuals in our communities.

Art Therapy


aminar’s Art Therapy program has made an impact on the lives of over 100 persons suffering from severe mental illness this past year. The program is funded by Aroha Philanthropies and led by world-renowned photographer Michael Collopy in collaboration with Caminar clinicians. By creating artwork, clients learn to express themselves when words cannot fully describe their range of emotions, or when they simply don’t want to talk. The program began in earnest three years ago with photography as the main art medium and has evolved to include drawing, painting, coloring books, and other activities. Music is streamed to set the mood, and occasionally, musicians are invited to play for the group. Michael begins each class by checking in with the group, then works with clients individually based on need and ability. The aim of the program is to promote comradery. By improving their social skills, many friendships and bonds have flourished. In the future we plan to dedicate more hours to the program, feature more live music, and incorporate other art mediums, such as working with clay. We are extremely encouraged by the success of the program. Clients tell us that participating in the Art Therapy Program makes them feel less anxious, calm, and hopeful. This makes us committed to building on its success. 11

6th Annual “In Concert with Caminar” By A ngelica Chisolm


n Saturday, October 15, Caminar sponsors, community partners, donors, Board of Directors, Executive Management team, employees, and their families and friends gathered at the SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco to raise money and celebrate the strides that Caminar has made in providing treatment for those who experience mental health difficulties. This yearly affair helps increase community awareness around mental health issues, highlighting Caminar’s client success stories and funding critical mental health programs. Music, food, heartwarming stories, and the generosity of our guests truly made this night unforgettable. 12

his year’s event grossed $430,000, with the proceeds supporting all of our mental health programs, including our Supported Housing program, which was the recipient of this year’s Fund-A-Need. Donations from this event will assist clients in finding and obtaining housing in the Bay Area, where rent for a one-bedroom apartment averages $2,300 a month. As most of our clients on Social Security Income (SSI) often receive only $900 per month, it makes paying a security deposit and first month’s rent essentially impossible without support. Almost all of our Supported Housing clients have kept their residences for at least one year. Caminar’s Board President, Steve Porter, made opening remarks and shared what drew him to the organization. Caminar CEO Chip Huggins then took the stage and made the exciting announcement that Family & Children

Services of Silicon Valley (FCS) will be joining forces with Caminar in early 2017. This strategic alliance will expand Caminar’s support system to children, teens, and families, including the LGBTQ communities. Master of Ceremony KCBS News co-anchor, Stan Bunger, shared his own personal connection to mental illness and presented the opening act, Mindi Abair and The Boneshakers, with special guest R&B vocalist, Sweet Pea Atkinson. The headliner was six-time Grammy

Award winner David Sanborn, who kept the crowd clapping and dancing throughout the night. Both Mindy and David opened up about family members’ experiences with mental illness and spoke to the importance of dialogue as a means to break the stigma around seeking and receiving services. The highlight of the evening was a video about Sheri Gomes, who suffered from addiction, was homeless, and had attempted suicide by jumping out of a five-story building. With Caminar’s assistance, she turned her life around. She now works as a Job Coach for Caminar, helping who are recovering from mental illness to enter the workforce. Caminar will continue the tradition of music as the cornerstone of our annual event when we return to the SFJAZZ Center on Saturday, November 11, 2017, to celebrate veterans and others dealing with mental health issues. 13
