Homeward Bound of Marin

Homeward Bound of Marin's mission of 'opening doors to safety, dignity, hope and independence' pairs with a vision that everyone deserves a place to call home. Founded in 1974, Homeward Bound is Marin County's chief provider of shelter and supportive housing for homeless families and individuals, with 16 programs serving approximately 1,000 people per year. Robust services offer an array of support to each individual forging a path out of homelessness. Programs ranging from emergency shelter to transitional and permanent housing have built a record of success in a hyper-expensive rental market. During the pandemic, programs have stretched to serve emergency motel shelters and opened paths to stable housing for 175 people between March and November 2020.
