Marin Community Benefit Cooperative

A Project of OHIAS

Ready Rested and Sober

Work is good for what ails us!


Our MCBC plan includes and will rely upon a workforce of hourly workers from our community who are seeking wholesome community work including: students, single parents, retired, graduates, veterans, ex-offenders, disabled and more. We call this program Ready Rested and Sober.


This program is designed to provide work for all who seek wholesome community work and for many unable to provide themselves with basic living necessities. Beyond wholesome work we wish to provide a positive step up out of despair for those who are still hopeful about improving their condition and lives. Many too, like single parents often need extra cash to meet obligations and a few hours work can possibly fill the need while make our local economy work more for all people.


Near 200 individuals have already completed our workforce survey around an opportunity for hourly community work. We intend on beginning this work once we have the all important and necessary community support.


Success of this program will be measured by people hired, hours worked, materials recovered (tons), lives recovered, materials sold as reuse, materials sold as recycled and products repaired for resale. Another important metric will be greenhouse gas (tons) sequestered and stored. These measurements are the same measurement and metrics used throughout the cooperative, everything is counted, measured (volume), weighed and photographed along with its potential worth.


OHIAS posters will be available for purchase soon!
