I first met the CARE Team at St. Vincent’s Dining Hall. I had recently separated from my wife and moved to Marin, believing that I would be welcomed by family. When I arrived, it turned out I didn’t have a place to live. The CARE Team helped me get accepted into a shelter program and drove me to appointments to apply for general assistance and get a social security card and a driver’s license. Within a month, I had found employment and was living in transitional housing while saving money to purchase a vehicle and move into my own apartment.
