Adopt A Family of Marin

Adopt A Family is an integral part of the circle of protection for struggling families in our community. Our mission and actions are focused on increasing the stability of individual families. Our larger goal is to increase our capacity to develop and follow best practices to prevent homelessness in the county. Adopt A Family provides subsidies for rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, food vouchers, and auto repair. By providing basic assistance to families, we help prevent the dangerous slide into homelessness for many families who would otherwise be without help. We take immediate actions to help families stabilize their lives. We work with parents to develop goals, make action plans, and follow through toward a better life.
