Crews will start driving piles in January as the first step to rebuild Mill Street Center with added housing in San Rafael. Watch our new video for “breaking news” about the start of this much-anticipated project.

The new center will serve 40+ adults and include 32 small apartments to provide permanent housing for people who will benefit most from on-site support. Homeward Bound has operated Marin County’s only year-round emergency shelter for adults on the site since 1986.

When finished, “Mill Street 2.0” will comprise four stories with parking on the ground floor, the first-floor shelter and housing on two upper floors. The updated shelter will provide rooms designated for youth, gender-neutral spaces and improvements for water and energy efficiency.

We’ve raised 95% of the estimated $15.8 million cost to open the doors of the new building in early 2022, thanks to help from key foundations, government partners and individual donors.
