About

WMCS

WMCS supports programs and services that ensure the well-being of individuals and families in West Marin. Self-sufficiency, human dignity, and social justice are the values that guide our efforts.

West Marin Community Services (WMCS) is a central hub for a diverse range of services that support our neighbors in West Marin. We respond to ever-changing circumstances and act as a safety-net to address needs unfulfilled by other organizations or government programs. This organization works to bring the community closer together  by building equity and fostering effective communication. For more than 40 years, we have provided critical support in many forms: supplying food to the hungry, clothing and household items to families, providing referrals to county, state, and federal programs, offering sponsorship to local non-profits, and much more to community members in need.

Eligible recipients of services are residents in the areas of West Marin:

  • Dillon Beach
