By prioritizing the most vulnerable residents for stable supportive housing, the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services (Marin HHS) and its partners have reduced chronic homelessness by 28 percent since 2017 according to preliminary figures from the Point-in-Time Count that took place in January. Marin HHS released the preliminary results of the count on May 8, 2019. The count is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) every two years for every U.S. community that receives federal homelessness funding.
