Creating a stronger Marin

Economic Recovery

  • Overview

    A report from the Tipping Point Community and the Othering and Belonging Institute at the University of California Berkeley indicated that among residents in Marin and several surrounding counties “nearly 1 in 5 people entered the pandemic in poverty and remain there today.” The concern is that although basic needs may be being met, assistance is dwindling in spite of some communities continuing to struggle. 

    Although Marin County has one of the highest vaccination rates in the country, even now there are still those getting ill, as well as those for whom the devastating economic impact has not gone away. We as a community and agency, can’t let our guard down. Community Action Marin is continuing to ask those who are able to step up and contribute to our Step Up Community Fund so we can continue to build momentum, seize opportunities, and make a difference for all of us as we continue to co-create a better normal.
