Development and Communications Director


CLAM's mission is to provide stable and permanently affordable homes in an environmentally responsible way in the communities surrounding Tomales Bay. As a community land trust, CLAM removes land and housing from the speculative real estate market, holding it “in trust” to serve as a long-term community asset for housing. In historically segregated Marin County, with one of the country’s most expensive housing markets, CLAM works to advance racial and economic equity by enabling families to purchase and rent homes affordably, thereby preventing displacement and empowering families and individuals to advance economically and thrive within their communities. Many who work in health care, agriculture, and the hospitality and service sectors commute 30-60 minutes to their jobs here. The lack of affordable local housing makes it difficult for local businesses and services to recruit and keep employees.

Founded in 2001, and powered by a dedicated, talented, and knowledgeable team of staff, Board, and other community volunteers, CLAM has grown to provide or facilitate housing to 63 people who work, live, and go to school throughout the community. CLAM tenants include renters, owners of two Community Land Trust homes, and those residing in affordable second units in privately owned homes facilitated by CLAM’s Real Communities Rental program. These homes only begin to meet the need for local affordable housing, and CLAM continues to work to expand the stock of housing affordable to local families, workers, and seniors.  CLAM is currently involved in a multi-year project to rehabilitate a 50+-unit former Coast Guard housing site in Point Reyes Station as well as seeking other opportunities to provide affordable housing.

Presently, CLAM has an annual budget of nearly $850K and significant property assets.

CLAM’s office is located off Highway 1 in Point Reyes Station in West Marin. We offer a collaborative and supportive work environment with competitive pay and benefits, including personal time off, health insurance, and a family-friendly approach.
