Meeting People Where They Are
Listening to the needs of community this past year changed how Community Action Marin worked. Our Safety Net Services team helped people facing emergencies. During the pandemic, we kicked into overdrive as families and individuals confronted extreme hardship. The work isn’t done yet however, as we strive to make economic recovery and well-being possible across Marin.
In the face of sustained high need, and with the generosity of our donors and partners, this past year we delivered unprecedented amounts of cash, rental assistance, and other resources to help those facing crisis find stability and hope. People are so grateful, although many are still struggling and the calls keep coming in because it’s often too hard to pay rent, afford utilities, buy healthy food, access resources, and maintain stability.
We need your help! Take a moment to watch this video featuring Chris Miranda, Safety Net Services Manager, highlighting what friends and supporters need to know about Community Action Marin’s Safety Net Programs.
Everyone in Marin deserves the opportunity to have a roof over their head and support on a road to greater well-being.
CEO: Chandra Alexandre, Ph.D.
