Marin County Homeless Programs Update.
Marin County (specifically San Rafael) has become a regional magnet for homeless people. It is not surprising that our homeless population has increased by 40% and the county is expanding services. Ritter Center was recently proposing relocation to North San Rafael that would TRIPLE its size and build a 24-7 shelter for the most difficult population of drug and alcohol abusers, mentally ill and ex offenders. It is not surprising therefore that out population will continue increase as service capacity is improved. Other counties throughout California are known to provide bus tickets to Marin county to rid themselves of their own homeless.
