ABOUT COMMUNITY ACTION MARIN (CAM)
When President Lyndon Johnson declared the “War on Poverty,” it led to the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 and the Community Action Movement. Programs were implemented to provide services to help move low-income Americans toward self-sufficiency. Today, there are more than 1,200 Community Action Agencies across the country that connect millions of children and families to greater opportunity.
Community Action Marin was founded in 1966 with an initial $40,000 federal grant. In 1967, the Marin County Board of Supervisors designated Community Action Marin as the county’s official antipoverty agency, with a mandate to work to eliminate the causes and consequences of poverty in Marin County. Now, the agency is a leader on efforts to create systems change for racial and economic justice alongside its provision of direct services.
For the past 50 years, Community Action Marin has been implementing innovative programs and powerful collaborations that help Marin residents to thrive. The agency makes it possible for people to achieve well-being by providing the education, mental health, and vital services they need. Together, we break down the barriers that get in the way of fair and lasting change in service to better outcomes for all. Last year, Community Action Marin reached over 7,000 unduplicated households and more than 20,000 people across a breadth of 19 programs under five service areas, including Safety Net, Economic Opportunity & Workforce Development, Children and Family Services, Mental Health, and Equity Initiatives.
The agency has grown contributed income and community partnerships significantly over the past three years and now needs a senior professional with a solid foundation of success as an accomplished and creative advancement (fundraising and marcom) and external relationships professional. Its network of community partners, staff, supporters, and donors will be guided to best leverage their passion and strengths in service of a mission to alleviate the causes and consequences of poverty.
Today, Community Action Marin carries its mandate forward as the largest non-profit social services provider in the county with a budget of $20M and over 200 employees.
