Mother of Five Finds Food and Shelter

A Dublin resident who is a mother to five children all under age 10, one of whom is disabled, called for information on homeless shelters and for contact information for 2-1-1 in Sonoma County. The caller was provided referrals for Henry Robinson Multi-Service Center, Berkeley Food & Housing and Bay Area Rescue Mission for emergency shelter, as well as to Helping Hands Homes and Alpha Omega for transitional housing. The caller was also provided 2-1-1 information in Sonoma County. The caller called back later in September for information on deposit assistance and free furniture in order to move into a rental unit. The caller was referred to Season of Sharing, Operation Dignity and Catholic Charities for assistance with rental deposit, and for furniture to Full Gospel Ministries and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
