Since its origins in the late 1960’s, the Center has continued to reflect the multiple needs and priorities of Valley residents. Our outstanding programs and services have a major impact on the quality of life for Valley residents from infants to seniors, families and singles, working people and retirees.
We serve people from Woodacre, San Geronimo, Forest Knolls, Lagunitas, Point Reyes, Nicasio, Fairfax and other communities in Marin County. Thousands of people visit the Center each year to enjoy our arts, cultural, recreational and human service programs.
We are proud and honored to be the Heart of the Valley, playing a unique and vital role that enhances the lives and well-being of the people that we serve.
