Permanent Supportive Housing Helps Prevent Homelessness

Housing First

Ritter Center’s Housing First Program helps individuals who have been chronically homeless in Marin for longer than 5 years find permanent supportive housing. Once the individual is housed, our staff works collaboratively with other Marin County agencies to provide necessary services, including: healthcare, medication management, behavioral health counseling, and substance use treatment. Our Housing First Program is possible through the generosity of our partnership with the County of Marin and the Marin Community Foundation.
