Money raised will support our local programs that assist people with disabilities to be active and contributing members of the community. Our programs offer community-based services in the areas of independent living, employment, socialization, education, and housing.
Caminar of Butte County is focused on providing support services that enable people with disabilities to fully integrate and participate in community living. This is accomplished through our various programs described below:
Access Plus – An adult day program that focuses on community integration and socialization. Participants practice life skills while spending time in the community. They even enjoy a bi-weekly adapted PE class put on by Chico State students.
Avenidas Apartments – This supported housing complex was opened in 2007 to provide affordable housing as well as employment opportunities.
Friendship Circle and Senior Ties – A socialization program that offers weekly events for adults and seniors with disabilities. Participants most recently enjoyed a Bowling Night and Under the Sea Dance.
Jobs Plus – Provides supported employment services. Participants work with Job Developers to create a resume and practice interview skills while they search for community employment. After participants are placed they continue to receive support services as needed to maintain employment.
Sensible Cyclery – A bike shop where donated bikes are refurbished and sold to the general public. The shop provides temporary employment opportunities and on site job skills training. Last month Sensible Cyclery celebrated the holidays by donating one hundred bicycles to low income children in Oroville, Ca.
Pro-Touch – A supported work crew that provides janitorial and landscaping services to the community. Like Sensible Cyclery Pro-Touch offers temporary employment opportunities and on-site job skills training.
Caminar Butte County has been serving people with developmental disabilities, mental illness and physical disabilities in the Chico, Paradise and Oroville areas for over 30 years.
