Many people find themselves in crisis when financial difficulties cause bills to pile up for essentials like rent, utilities, and food. Our primary goal is to keep you from losing your housing.

Prevention Desk Line

If you currently have housing, but need help with an emergency situation, please call our help line at 415-454-0366. If you are experiencing homelessness and need help, call 415-454-3303 x25.

How can we help you?

Right Now

No one in crisis can do it alone. Our experienced volunteers in our St. Vincent de Paul conferences are available to meet with you to help assess your situation. You may receive immediate assistance like groceries, financial support to temporarily help pay your rent or other bills, and information about other resources. The only requirement is that you must be a resident of Marin County.

Into the Future

Our volunteers are also ready to meet with you over time to help you create a plan and assist you to make sure you can get back on track to maintain your housing. We want to help you develop a network of support for you and your family, so you can enjoy greater stability into the future.

What should I do to get help?

The first step is to call our Prevention Desk at 415-454-0366 and provide us with your name, phone number, and complete address, and a brief description of your need.

What will happen next?

You can expect one of our experienced volunteers to contact you to set up an appointment. Our volunteers will meet you, either at your house or a mutually convenient location, so that you don’t have to worry about taking time off work, lining up childcare, or finding transportation.
