Advancing racial and economic justice
Community Action Marin is dedicated to the fight against poverty. The array of services we provide promote racial and economic equity by addressing the real and varied needs of individuals and families who lack the income to be self-sufficient.
Our staff listen deeply to the needs of community, helping to meet each person and each family where they are today. Our whole person, whole family approach makes a meaningful impact on people’s lives and sets them on pathways to their dreams. Together, we are putting Marin County on a path to self-sufficiency and thriving for all.
At locations across Marin, our frontline team of Success Coaches helps to ensure that people’s most basic needs are met, taking the time to understand priorities while supporting hopes and dreams.
This past year, in partnership with government, supporters, partner organizations, and community, we helped more people and changed more lives than ever before. Read Community Action Marin’s 2022 Impact Report to learn how community members came together to tackle urgent problems and meet immediate needs.
There is still a lot of work to do to repair the disproportionate impacts of the pandemic on people of color and people of low income. The reality is that racial and economic disparities existed long before the pandemic, and they will continue to be part of Marin County unless we take bold action.

I am proud of the wonderful work of Community Action Marin. Through their services and programming, they transform the lives of our most vulnerable residents and set them on a path towards success…Thank you, Community Action Marin, for all that you do to make Marin a much better community for all!
