The Marin Organizing Committee (MOC) invites the community to participate in the REST (Rotating Emergency Shelter Team) signature campaign. MOC plans to submit 6,000 signed signature cards to the Board of Supervisors in May. These efforts are intended to remind and persuade the Board of Supervisors of the need for a permanent, year-round structure for the REST program.
Eight years ago, REST started as a temporary emergency measure for the winter, which included dinner and an overnight stay. Churches in Marin have taken turns hosting dinner and overnight shelter for 25-40 people each night. The men are housed at local churches, while the women stay at the Canal neighborhood’s Health and Human Services building. There has been a consistent and heavy need for the program. Now it’s time to move from these temporary shelters to a permanent facility in Marin.
REST NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW! Please complete the linked coupon and mail to: St Anselm's Church PO Box 1061 97 Shady Lane, Ross CA 94957.
