6) Community Court in partnership with Marin Superior Court and Legal Aid of Marin; helps resolve minor offenses and outstanding fines that are damaging your credit, impacting your driver’s license or otherwise holding you back
Our services include immediate assistance like groceries; financial support to temporarily help pay your rent or other bills; and information about other resources. We can also assess your barriers to housing and create a personal housing plan that will allow us to work with you to remove those barriers and find a place to live. Once suitable housing is located, we may be able to help with some of the initial expenses and support you through the transition back into housing.
