About Community Action Marin

The largest non-profit anti-poverty agency in Marin, Community Action Marin makes it possible for people to achieve well-being by providing the vital services they need. The agency breaks down the barriers that get in the way of fair and lasting change through four key levers for change: building power with people, strengthening access to services, shifting the narrative on poverty, and advocating for laws and policies that increase well-being for all. Programs include expanding economic opportunity via workforce development, financial wellness, and asset building pathways; increasing housing stability via resources and supports for those who are unhoused or at risk of homelessness; and enhancing individual and family well-being via early childhood education, income and family supports, and mental health resources. As more people are aging into poverty in the county, CAM’s services for people of low income are needed across generations. The agency’s commitment is to a Whole Family Approach that strengthens outcomes along a crisis-to-thriving continuum.
