Adopt A Family of Marin helps low-income families in crisis by offering financial and emotional support to prevent homelessness and provide family stability. Our method is straightforward: we provide subsidies for rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments and food vouchers. We combine this with comprehensive assessment, targeted case management, budgeting assistance, goal setting and information and referral. Our method is cost-effective, compassionate and successful.
Typical clients are parents whose lives are in turmoil due to circumstances often beyond their control such as an illness, an injury at work, a large increase in monthly rent, spousal abuse or job loss that threatens their financial ability to stay in their homes.
