The Citypak Project partners with the REST system in Marin County, CA

Thanks to Jan O'Brien for helping us provide Citypaks to the areas homeless.

The Rotating Emergency Shelter Team(REST) evolved out of necessity due tothe lack of capacity in Marin’s existingshelter system. Through a partnershipwith more than 40 local congregations,we provide shelter for up to 20 womenand 40 men on a nightly basis for thewinter months. These congregationsopen their hearts and their doors,providing volunteers, meals and companionshipto REST guests. One goalof REST is to help foster relationshipsbetween congregants and those livingon the streets. Another important goalis to help people move from theinstability of homelessness toward morepermanent housing solutions.
