At Community Action Marin, we promote prosperity and hope through a powerful set of financial empowerment and workforce development programs. This past year from tax help alone, $128,000 was returned to families during tax season. No matter what your financial situation, we can provide the coaching to help. Come make a step-by-step plan to create a household budget, rebuild your credit score, manage debt, or get trained for a new career. As with all of our services, we utilize the agency’s Whole Family Approach to make sure needs are met and improved outcomes are ensured at the individual, agency, and community levels.
Living our values guides all that we do. With trust as our foundation, we pursue healing-centered engagement to bring about transformational change. We also recognize the importance of doing the work in our own house to create meaningful steps toward equity and well-being in order to do the hard work to accomplish our goals of racial and economic justice in our Marin community.

Careers & Workforce Training
Our program provides avenues for career exploration and strengthens participation in job training, encourages the creation of options for job seekers, including high-demand professions, and builds stronger readiness pathways for people who need assistance to become eligible for career training. Explore the road to a new career in all of our service areas, and more.
Maximizing a tax refund can put vital money back in peoples’ pockets. We offer free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) tax preparation services where caring, trained volunteers guide Marin residents through matters such as reporting on public benefits and claiming the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), so they can claim tax benefits for which they’re eligible and understand their choices for the next year.
