We are looking for licensed health care professionals to support contact investigations or clinical operations. Volunteers in this area must be 18 years or older, have a valid California license for clinical practice and have no negative licensure or certification actions. Health care professionals who wish to volunteer should read the eligibility and registration process on the Marin Medical Reserve Corps websiteand then register on the California Healthcare Volunteers (DHV) website.  &

If you are not a healthcare professional, you can still help with our community’s COVID-19 response. Currently, the greatest volunteer need in Marin is help at food banks and food distribution sites. Register with the Center for Volunteerism and Non-Profit Leadership (CVNL). 

Consider making a monetary donation to Marin Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. The fund will help provide rental assistance to Marin residents who are at risk of losing housing due to COVID-19 related income loss. During the first week of the program, more than 1,500 requests for rental assistance were received totaling approximately $2.4 million in funding requests. Donations of any size are welcome. MCF is a funder of the the local rental assistance program administered by West Marin Community Services
