Marin Villages is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization empowering older adults to remain active, connected and independent in the place they call home.

Through our network of volunteers and local villages we are bringing to life a great idea: vibrant local communities of members and volunteers, enriching each other’s lives, building new connections and making everyday life easier as we age.

Are you Ready?
The devastation from the Camp Fire is only now being discovered, but one thing that many that we know is that you can never be "too" ready for a disaster. Seniors, in particular, seem to be especially hard hit.

There are steps you can take to prepare, so that if a major fire, earthquake or other emergency strikes, you know that you have done all you can to plan for it and the aftermath.

Ready Marin is Marin County's source for information on emergency preparedness, whether you are just starting or an experienced emergency volunteer.

Its mission is to provide guidance, training and resources to keep you and your family safe during an emergency, whether it requires you to evacuate or shelter in place. You will find information and links to resources, checklists, and training opportunities. Let's get prepared.
