A Whole Family Approach to Helping Marin’s Low-Income Communities

Often, clients come to Community Action Marin because they need childcare so that they can get to work or school. But then they find that CAM will also help their children get dental and regular health screenings, and they themselves have access to rental assistance, help paying utility bills, and mental health support too.
The nonprofit provides the over 550 children it serves with what’s often their most nutritious meal of the day – and, at the farm site, it includes them in many aspects of food selection and preparation. It offers a way to stability and beyond for over 5,000 households from West Marin to Marin City, San Rafael to Novato.
Private donors can help Community Action Marin adapt and strengthen integrated services so that when community members come through the doors of one of their sites, they’ll have more than just the tools they need to meet the basic requirements for survival. The agency’s staff is committed to creating pathways for people to thrive.
Donations like yours help to keep the operation responsive to urgent needs and innovative in approaches to alleviating poverty. With your support, CAM’s community of clients and the county at large will be better able to meet and strengthen strides toward equity, self-sufficiency, and good food for all.
