Since 1974, Homeward Bound of Marin has helped people unlock new futures and untapped potential. We have supported families and individuals to find stability, set goals for the future, secure long-term housing, access medical and mental health services and develop employment skills.

Help us build new housing and facilities

With a $2 million funding gap, we urgently need your help to bring this vision to reality. You can make an investment for the future with a gift today to the landmark 50 Years-50 Homes campaign.

  • Make a donation of any amount in honor of a veteran and their name will be included on a permanent dedication wall.
  • With a gift of $25,000, we welcome you to name an apartment after your family, business, community group or loved one.
  • Your gift of $1,000,000 confers the exclusive opportunity to name the veterans housing building or 26-unit housing development for families and adults.

New homes in Novato

We’re building affordable housing for veterans, families and people leaving homelessness behind next to our headquarters in Novato.

This $38 million project includes 24 homes for heroes to end veteran homelessness in Marin, which will open in Spring 2024.

We’re preparing to build 26 more apartments for people transitioning out of homelessness and space to expand our culinary enterprises.

Expanding our social enterprise businesses

Homeward Bound’s mission-driven businesses offer a place to build skills and provide supportive employment for graduates from our Fresh Starts Culinary Academy. Revenue from these businesses is reinvested in housing, training and career development for people overcoming homelessness and lack of opportunity.
