Community Action Marin is an organization whose mission is to ultimately alleviate poverty, by promoting independence among low income folks in Marin. We strive to improve stability, quality of life and community connection through a variety of different social services that provide the foundation to develop life skills. Our programs support clients through financial management, career coaching, child care support, energy assistance, better nutrition, advocacy and support for families living with mental illness and overall improvement of standard of living in Marin. Our services are unique and broad; from the Bolinas Children's center to our mobile Patient's Rights advocate who works with people in mental health crises, we are available to provide a sense of relief and guidance to our clients and have designed our services to address their needs holistically and personally.
We have a beautiful planter and some side pots and flower area that need some love at CAM. These are really small two hour or less projects that requires some one time volunteers who enjoy being outside and can help plant some flowers (that they help purchase). 1 or 2 is enough, equal to 5-10$.
As a nonprofit it is hard to find time for the seemingly small things but we KNOW these things make a difference. When clients come to CAM, often the first thing they see is our sign in our planter. We want there faces to light up and for them to smile and smell the flowers (literally). When people drive by CAM, the first thing they see is the planter. As a non profit that provides many services, people often aren't exactly sure what we even do for the community. We hope that this little project will plant the seed in people's minds to find out more about Community Action Marin's services and how they are benefiting the community, as well as come and volunteer with us more often.
