Homeward Bound of Marin embraces a mission of 'opening doors to safety, dignity, hope and independence' to pursue its goal of "ending homelessness with training, housing and hope." Founded in 1974, Homeward Bound is Marin County's chief provider of shelter and supportive housing for homeless families and individuals, with 18 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 stretched to serve people taking refuge in local motels. In January 2021, work began on a rebuilt emergency shelter with 32 new units of permanent supportive housing.
