When my daughter and I needed help the most, Adopt A Family was there for us. I expected some judgement and disrespect, but what I found there was just the opposite. I was always treated with great respect and understanding. I attended some of their programming which imparted some truly inspirational information. Because of Adopt A Family, we were able to remain stable in our apartment and we received gifts during the holiday season that we otherwise could not have afforded. It was special to have flowers delivered on Mother's Day! Our financial situation has improved! I look forward to giving back to this wonderful place! They made me feel cared for and safe when I needed it the most.
Over the past two years I have developed many wonderful relationship through my work with Adopt A Family. They have opened my eyes to the issue of homelessness in Marin and their efforts to tackle it. I have heard many intimate stories directly from women in need and learned how Adopt A Family has helped them out of some of the most difficult challenges of their life. Adopt a Family truly saved their lives. I am most impressed with their model for long term, sustainable services that provides a support community as well as educational skills to not only help these women out of homelessness and not only keep them out, but to empower them to do great things.
