We are a nonprofit community-based agency that has been providing support services to individuals with serious mental illness for over 45 years.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people with mental illness by providing opportunities to live in the community with dignity and independence.
About our name: Olives have a great long history of symbolism in many traditions and cultures: beauty, strength, honor, joy, health, healing wounds and hope. In ancient times the trees were shaken to harvest the olives. Today it is we who must be shaken sometimes, to stir our hearts and minds to change.
For nearly 50 years, Caminar, a nonprofit organization, has been a leader in serving persons with serious mental illness, and their families. We provide intensive services around the clock and on-going comprehensive assessment that address medical, psychological and social factors.
Olivos delivers care in the community where our clients live. Our goals are to enable adults to live and maintain in the community of their choice with increasing levels of independence, and to reduce the need for disruptive and costly emergency services.
Our approach is founded on evidence based practices and a proud history of providing a continuum of services that focus on the strengths, skills, and abilities that each individual brings to his or her recovery process. Olivos staff provide an array of support services to help individuals throughout their recovery process to find hope and achieve their aspirations so that they can create meaningful and satisfying lives.
The Care Manager acts as the personal services coordinator and provides seamless access to a complete array of intensive treatment services which include:
- Psychiatric Assessment
- Individual and Group Counseling
- Medication Management
- 24 hour On-Call Emergency Response
- Full Service Case Management (including linkages to community resources)
- Employment and vocational services
Persons with serious mental illness can and do recover and that journey begins with taking one-step forward, and from there, one step at a time. Olivos meets individuals where they are in their recovery and co-creates a treatment plan that is specific, measureable and focuses on their strengths.
