Community Collaboration for a More Resilient Marin
Marin County has weathered the COVID-19 pandemic better than other parts of California and the country. With high vaccination rates and robust partnerships among non-profit, community, and government agencies to support relief efforts, our community has achieved a lot.
For large numbers of families and individuals in one of the state’s most racially disparate counties however, the crisis is not over.
Housing insecurity and economic instability, which were exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, have put a high percentage of Marin County’s low-income and historically marginalized residents at risk. This report, the result of a collaboration between four front-line community-based organizations — Canal Alliance, Community Action Marin, Legal Aid of Marin, and North Marin Community Services — describes how partners worked together to address inequities with service delivery in Marin, and how they mobilized for effective short and long-term solutions.
We as a community have an opportunity to prepare for the future and invite you to read the report, share it with others, and get involved.
