NONPROFITS ADD OR CHANGE SERVICES DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

North Marin Community Services’ staff of 60 staff members and 240 volunteers continue to provide emergency safety net services including emergency rental and deposit assistance so that people can stay in their homes and out of homelessness, mental health counseling and the Novato Teen Clinic services through telemental health. They are offering childcare support through the countywide network for healthcare and emergency personnel, virtual enrichment and academic homework support in English and Spanish for preschoolers through middle school and Spanish speaking and specialized support to help isolated residents to help them connect to public and private sector resources. The Tuesday Food Pantry is now a drive-through where qualified volunteers and staff pre-pack groceries and place bags of food in the trunks of clients’ cars.

Through the COVID-19 emergency, Homeward Bound of Marin is working as hard as ever to help people leave homelessness. Even now, people are moving from shelters into long-term housing. Joyce and Kathleen (pictured above) formerly homeless, have become roommates in a shared apartment. You can help by donating gift cards to purchase necessities so people can continue moving forward. Gift cards or monetary donations for this effort can be sent to Homeward Bound at 1385 N. Hamilton Parkway, Novato, 94949, or visit hbofm.org/donate.  -Photo courtesy of Homeward Bound of Marin

At Center for Domestic Peace (C4DP), the safety and wellbeing of its staff, domestic violence survivors and its Marin community are foundational concerns with the spread of COVID-19. Otherwise protective strategies such as “social distancing” and being confined to one’s home are putting domestic violence victims at greater risk due to the isolation this creates. As the community faces this challenge together, C4DP’s core services remain operational, including its 24/7 Spanish-English hotline, emergency shelter and transitional housing program. For a complete list of available C4DP services, visit c4dp.org. To donate to C4DP’s Relief Fund, go to c4dp.org/donate-now.  -Photo courtesy of C4DP
