This Housing Crisis

Marin faces a perfect storm.

  • HOUSING SHORTAGE – We have had a drastic housing shortage. We don’t come close to meeting the needs of our workforce or low income residents. Our neighbors and friends are being forced out.
  • NORTH BAY FIRES – Due to the fires we are now in a critical housing crisis. Marin needs to be included in the emergency status designated by the State. Marin’s rent will be under heavy pressure from the 5,000 displaced people in Sonoma and Napa
  • TENANT LEGAL BACKLOG – Legal Aid of Marin announces that, unless a case of eviction is already in court, Legal Aid does not have the resources to take on any other tenant protection work.
