Update in Response to COVID-19

St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin continues to serve free meals throughout this crisis, as we have every day since we opened our Free Dining Room in 1981, ensuring that no one goes hungry in Marin.

Now more than ever, we need your help!

Thank you for doing your part to keep one another safe and for helping us continue to care for our community’s most vulnerable residents.

Our Housing Help Desk welcomes over 800 clients each year and offers limited financial aid and a sympathetic ear to people without a place to live. Last year we helped transition more than 147 people into housing.

Crisis Assistance

Each week in Marin County, volunteers from the Society visit people struggling to make ends meet in their homes to help them get through life’s struggles. The primary goal of these visits is to prevent homelessness.
