Help Create a Stronger Marin 

By Giving List Staff   |   May 5, 2022

We’ve been thinking a lot about what an equitable recovery means for individuals and families across Marin. For some people, it means going back to a job with a regular paycheck so that they can have the income they need to live with dignity. For others, it means having a roof over their head, or not having to worry about making their rent payments.  

Marin resident, Alia Brown, has a personal story about moving out of crisis. The death of her mother started her on a journey that included being homeless. Alia came to Community Action Marin for help, and together we were able to set a path to recovery that included a variety of supports, including financial coaching.   

Housing insecurity and economic instability, which were exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, impacted a high percentage of our Marin friends, families, and neighbors. Community Action Marin has joined forces with partner community-based organizations to create an Equitable Recovery Action Plan for a stronger and more resilient post-pandemic Marin County for all. We now need to raise $30,000 this Spring to make this urgent action plan a reality. 

Thanks to a dollar-for-dollar matching gift, a tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100 or even $250 will double your impact towards an equitable recovery. Donate today at and help us meet our challenge match goal of $30,000 towards an equitable recovery for Marin County.
