Being intimately familiar with the work that this nonprofit does to serve the needs of marginalized communities in Marin County, I can honestly say that five stars is simply not enough. Aside from providing critical emergency services to families on the verge of becoming homeless, AAF has an outstanding holiday program, offers workshops and guidance to better equip clients with the tools necessary for getting ahead, and works collaboratively with other local NGOs and government organizations to coordinate resources and streamline assistance for families in need. The staff is compassionate and friendly and works hard to understand where their clients are coming from. While so many other nonprofits are mired in mountains of bureaucratic red tape that can often leave clients feeling alienated and afraid, the amazing staff at AAF create a warm and safe space for families to ask for, and receive, the help they need. This organization is truly one of a kind.

I am inspired by and in awe of the work Adopt a Family does for those most in need residing in Marin County. The staff and volunteers serve our community every day helping families cope with the pressures of making ends meet which can be overwhelming. It does make a difference in people's lives to know an organization like Adopt a Family can help them through difficult times. Congrats and much gratitude to this invaluable group of caring individuals.
