Property Description

Located in Marin County, The Fireside is a transit-oriented community that features the preservation of the historic Fireside Inn building which today serves as management offices and a community center with a computer lab and “Kiddie Corner” for resident use. Low-rise buildings have replaced the dilapidated 1950s motel structure that occupied the site until its demolition in 2006. The property was developed by Citizens Housing Corporation and later transferred to Eden Housing, Inc.

The Fireside is now home to seniors, families and individuals with special needs. In partnership with Homeward Bound of Marin and Marin County Community Mental Health, a robust package of supportive social services is offered to Fireside residents.
