Information on Service Adjustments During the COVID-19 Emergency

HHS is the County’s largest department with more than 700 employees who work at many sites throughout Marin. Many HHS offices have reopened with limited staffing to the public. Staff will continue to provide services remotely when possible for safety reasons, and residents in need of HHS services should consider conducting conversations over the phone or email when possible.

Covia

Covia (formerly named Episcopal Senior Communities) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1965 that operates continuing care retirement communities, affordable housing sites, and outreach services in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, Monterey, Sonoma, Santa Clara and Marin counties. Covia’s Community Services programs (formally called Novato Independent Elders Program or “NIEP” in Novato) are designed to support the independence and improve the quality of life of Novato residents and beyond.
The City of Novato provides in-kind support which allows Covia’s Community Services to remain at Margaret Todd Senior Center. Covia develops community partnerships which provide outreach, education and advocacy programs for older adults, family caregivers, service providers, and offers many volunteer opportunities for older adults in the community.
