Marin County is located in northwest of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge and is home to an engaged community of 260,000. The County enjoys a diversified economic base, including a mix of insurance, medical, pharmaceutical, technology, financial, and retail employers.

Marin is a desirable place to live and is known for its combination of rural and suburban lifestyles, entertainment and recreational activities, and mild, year-round climate. With an operating budget of $783 million (FY 2023/24), the County is comprised of 22 departments with a workforce of over 2,500 employees. It is governed by the Board of Supervisors, which is made up of an elected representative from each of the five voting districts.

The mission of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is to promote and protect the health, well-being, safety and self-sufficiency of all Marin County residents. The Department is an innovative, integrated department consisting of five divisions: Administration, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, Public Health, Social Services, and Whole Person Care/Homelessness that deliver, coordinate, and administer a range of federal, state, and local programs addressing the health and welfare needs of county residents.

Under policy direction of the Board of Supervisors, the Director plans, directs, and oversees the activities and operations of the Department of Health and Human Services. The Director will provide the vision and leadership to its leadership team, various program areas, and its workforce; ensure administrative, fiscal, and compliance operations are well managed; engage and build strong relationships with community service partners, the Board of Supervisors, and County departments; create a diverse, equitable and inclusive work culture for its employees; and develop clear goals and responsive initiatives.
