We’ve secured a building permit and begun the first steps to transform a former convent in Larkspur into King Street Senior Housing, our latest supportive housing program.

Renovations will upgrade the kitchen, replace the roof and windows, and improve disability access to accommodate 12 low-income seniors in this partnership with St. Patrick’s Church, which granted a 35-year lease of the building at 127 King St. to Homeward Bound of Marin. Work could be finished by November.

“We are thrilled to be working with Monsignor Padazinski and St. Patrick’s parish to offer financially vulnerable seniors a new lease on life and, simultaneously, to renovate and reinvigorate a classic neighborhood home,” says Mary Kay Sweeney, Executive Director of Homeward Bound of Marin.

Marin Community Foundation, the County of Marin, Tamalpais Pacific and the HOME federal housing grant program have provided major support to our $1.3 million capital campaign. You can support King Street Senior Housing with a gift online or by check to Homeward Bound of Marin, 1385 N. Hamilton Parkway, Novato, CA  94949.
