Adopt A Family of Marin
November 25, 2010
I have been involved with Adopt A Family of Marin for over 10 years as a board member, volunteer, and donor. It is an extremely well run organization with extremely low administrative costs, allowing it to give most of the money raised to families in need in our local community. Every year hundreds of families are helped to remain in their homes and avoid the trauma of homelessness. Subsidies are also provided for food, car repairs, and child care to help maintain stability. I know of no other organization like it.

I have met many of the families who have been helped and have seen how grateful they are for the subsidies and the respect with which they're treated. And I have seen many return to the agency after they are stable and offer help to others.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The only change would be more donations so that we could hire more staff to help more families.
Volunteer & I serve on the Board of Directors.
