Promote a self-sustaining community in Marin City, California by advancing health, educational, and economic outcomes for residents through collaborative and comprehensive community-based support services.
Marin County Cooperation Team (MCCT) promotes a self-sustaining community in Marin City, California, to give Marin City residents an overall improved quality of life through service, relationships, connection, and equity. MCCT provides comprehensive support services through seven teams in the areas of (1) family needs, (2) senior and disability support, (3) educational support, (4) college and career readiness, (5) mental health and wellness, (6) crisis care, and (7) community and civic engagement (CCE). MCCT’s CCE programming interrupts the special education-to-prison pipeline and gives students the tools to maximize their strengths and potential and become community organizers.
