Marin County to hire case managers to address homelessness

The city councils of San Rafael and Novato as well as the Marin County Board of Supervisors are considering pooling nearly $2 million to hire case managers to help address homelessness in Marin. The funds for this effort are coming from federal aid from the American Rescue Plan. The aim is to hire up to eight case managers, each of whom can serve 17 clients, meaning the funding will ultimately benefit a total of 136 homeless people. These case managers can assist the homeless by helping them transition into housing made available through Project Roomkey and Project Homekey.
