    What Is Our Community Doing to Solve Homelessness?

    On October 1, 2017, the County of Marin and local service providers launched a national best practice for solving homelessness called Coordinated Entry. Coordinated Entry is all about collaboration. Today, local service providers gather information through a standardized assessment and data sharing process that helps to ensure efficient care coordination. This is particularly important for identifying effective housing interventions.

    Permanent Supportive Housing is a national best practice for people experiencing long-term, chronic homelessness (i.e. homelessness lasting more than a year that is accompanied by a disabling condition such as a behavioral health diagnosis, a chronic health condition, and/or a traumatic brain injury). This chart shows the number of people housed in Permanent Supportive Housing by month.

    Over 400 people were housed in the first four years of Coordinated Entry.

        Permanent Supportive Housing Supply

        Over time, we have worked diligently to increase not only our monthly housing placement rate, but also our supply of Permanent Supportive Housing overall. The County has a goal of increasing supply of Permanent Supportive Housing by 10% from 2021 to 2022. This means we would need 714 Permanent Supportive Housing units by the end of 2022.

        This chart shows Permanent Supportive Housing units from 2016 through 2021 in Marin County and the change in the number of units from year to year. We will be posting quarterly updates on our creation of new Permanent Supportive Housing in 2022. Please find our Permanent Supportive Housing Data page for more information on inventory progress.

        Equity in Housing

        We have also been working hard to ensure that this system is equitable. Comparing demographics of people experiencing chronic homelessness to those who have obtained Permanent Supportive Housing can help us monitor our progress. The chart below shows the distribution of race/ethnicity, gender, and age of the two groups.

        *Demographic data are based on the head of household and do not include additional household members, including partners, children, or caregivers. Data categories are based on Homeless Management Information System data elements, defined by the federal government, and may not fully capture how people self-identify. Marin resident data show Department of Finance projections of Marin's adult population and do not include non-binary genders. Data are current through June 15, 2022.

        Marin County Encampments

        The County of Marin is working with community partners to assess encampment residents for Permanent Supportive Housing and support residents in finding pathways to housing. We are continuously improving our data collection process and will continue to share data as they become available. A small number of residents are active in Marinship and RBRA and are represented in both counts.
