Local Nonprofit Launched to Help Homeowners find Temporary Help

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Marin Real Estate

 Three nonprofit organizations teamed up this week to launch The website connects household employers and temporary workers in a database by phone and email. Workers register with the website and are entered in a database, which the project manager, and sole employee, uses to find suitable workers for homeowners who call in. The homeowner and workers negotiate payment. So far, about 100 workers have registered, including some without immigrant status documentation. Legal Aid of Marin spent months researching the legalities of the website’s policies. The project has been funded largely by the San Francisco Foundation, the Marin Community Foundation, and the Zellerbach Family Fund.
