Community Court

Community Court is a diversion program for homeless and low-income defendants to resolve minor offenses and learn about support services.

In partnership with Marin Superior Court and Legal Aid of Marin we host a monthly Community Court in our dining facility after hours. Last year, we assisted 370 individuals to successfully resolve their cases.

How can we help you?

Marin Community Court makes court proceedings accessible to you in a friendly atmosphere to help resolve minor offenses and outstanding fines that are damaging your credit, impacting your driver’s license or otherwise holding you back. Community Court personnel work with you to secure community service hours, connect you with social services, medical treatment, rehabilitation programs and job seeking assistance.

How do I apply to attend Community Court?

You must apply in advance to participate in Community Court. You can sign up in person upstairs at 822 B Street in San Rafael every Thursday (except holidays) at 2:00 pm. Or apply by phone through Legal Aid of Marin at 415-492-0230 ext. 313.
