Review for Adopt A Family of Marin, San Rafael, CA, USA
Adopt A Family of Marin does a lot of good with its limited resources! First and foremost, clients feel respected. The agency knows that many of us are just one major illness or one car repair bill away from the "straw that breaks the camel's back". So the assistance starts with respect and brainstorming around how the client can get through the emergency and back on track. AAF provides both financial assistance for rents, security deposits, emergency repairs, etc., plus down-to-earth case management -- such as tips on how to shop on a budget in Marin or a reality check on how much a smoking habit is really costing. And, the agency operated with only a 13% staffing overhead; donations go to client services, not running the agency.
