Help when you need it

One time financial assistance for emergency family needs

We're Here If You Need Us

A one-time emergency can tip the scale for people who are already struggling into crisis.  We are committed to providing a safety net that can assist people when the unexpected happens. Depending on funding and need, in addition to the Rental Assistance provided by the Season of Sharing program, the Season of Sharing also makes it possible for support with medical equipment, or other essential needs (excluding medical and dental bills). Payments are always made directly to a vendor.

If you are in need of immediate financial assistance, other than with utilities, or have questions about our Emergency Family Needs program, please send an email to our Emergency Family Needs team.

Get our Resource Guide

Every year, Community Action Marin publishes a comprehensive list of local resources for Marin residents. Compiled with a special focus on programs serving those with low incomes, this guide plays a vital role in connecting people with services. This helps them thrive and knits a closer safety net of support among the various agencies serving Marin County.  

I received emergency cash to help repair my automobile. Thankfully it’s running again. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank Community Action Marin for its generosity and kindness. Without this financial assistance I would be without a car. I would like you to know how much I appreciate your generosity to me and my family.
