We believe all of us in Marin should have an equal opportunity to support ourselves and each other.
Many people consider Marin County to be one of the most beautiful places to live in the United States. It has some of the highest incomes per capita and one of the lowest unemployment rates. It also has the widest gap between rich and poor and the greatest racial inequities in the State of California. In this county of plenty, the face of poverty is often invisible.
We make it possible for people to achieve wellbeing by providing the education, mental health, and vital services they need. Together, we break down the barriers that get in the way of fair and lasting change in service to better outcomes for all.
When you consider the American Dream, do you know that it’s possible for you?
For too many, access to opportunities is denied because of income level and often because of race. Awareness of the daily challenges faced by immigrants, people living in poverty, and those suffering discrimination will help us all reach our fullest potential. Today, we are working together in community to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children, grandchildren, and the leaders of tomorrow no matter what their zip code or country of origin.
I invite you to be part of Community Action Marin. Let’s join forces to create pathways toward self-sufficiency for those of low-income. Together we can chart a strong, sustainable, and equitable future in our beautiful county.
