Community Spotlight: food-recipientsMill Street Center
Mill Street Center opened its doors more than 27 years ago. It’s an emergency shelter for homeless singles, has 55 beds and is one of nine facilities run by Homeward Bound of Marin. For a lot of people, Mill Street is the entry point to sort out what they want to do and how to get employment. Our Operations Manager, Kathy, had the opportunity to visit Mill Street this week and tour the facility with Teddy, the manager. She reports Mill Street has a homey feel and is clean, organized and busy with remodeling activities. Teddy is able to take advantage of some of the short-term residents’ construction skills, which is great when Teddy needs help with a bathroom repair or a room remodel. Mill Street Center is a true gem in our community. https://hbofm.org/Homeless-Adults.html
