The Division of Homelessness and Whole Person Care has just launched a way to help support our mutual efforts to end homelessness in our community.
By placing this image—which we’re calling a “badge”—on your website and linking it to Marin HHS’s Housing First website, https://housingfirst.marinhhs.org, we can raise awareness of our combined efforts to address homelessness and highlight your organization’s role in supporting this outcome. To obtain copies of the badge, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Is Marin County Doing About Homelessness?
Marin County is the biggest funder of homeless services in the county and is a leader in transforming the homeless system of care. We are proud to work across County departments, with the cities, and with our community partners to create a unified system to help house people and keep them housed.

The Marin County Council of Mayors and Councilmembers (MCCMC) and the Marin Managers Association (MMA) have released an RFP under the Community Homeless Fund to serve individuals and families, specifically in Marin County, who are experiencing homelessness. This RFP seeks proposals for services including Outreach and Engagement, Rapid Response, Intensive Case Management, Multi-Disciplinary Team, and Mobile Shower Services. Agencies can apply for as few as one or up to all these services in their response.
April housing stats have been posted to the Data Dashboard. Thirteen additional people were housed last month for a total of 478 people housed in permanent supportive housing since October of 2017.
