What resources has San Rafael used to help individuals that are experiencing homelessness find permanent housing?

San Rafael continues to be a countywide leader in the development of new housing options for people experiencing homelessness. This includes: 

  • City Council allocated $1.3M in funding to support the County’s purchase of 3301 Kerner Boulevard through the State’s Project Homekey initiative. (which will create 44 units of permanent supportive housing) 
  • · City Council authorized up to $260,000 in funding for additional social workers to help in housing placement and directed staff to continue to vet the idea of a safe sleeping pilot. 
  • The County of Marin is leasing hotel rooms in San Rafael to provide interim shelter for people experiencing homelessness through the State’s Project Roomkey initiative.
