Every One. All Ways.
We provide for a range of needs, including heat, housing rental, car and home repairs, medical costs, and other miscellaneous issues.
West Marin Community Services (WMCS) often serves as a monetary resource for the community. We realize that sometimes all a community member needs is help with a bill or unexpected expense to get out of a tough situation and back on their feet.

The community of West Marin often finds itself coming together to help neighboring families in need. To aid in these swells of interest to help, WMCS created a tool for donors who want to make tax deductible contributions to local families in crisis. 100% of funding goes directly to specified families.
West Marin is comprised of people who often want to create community through programs and events. We will sponsor these through our nonprofit tax identification, encouraging donors to contribute to beloved community programs such as Day of the Dead.
