The Community Working Group is an incredibly effective organization that is run almost completely by very dedicated volunteers. It raised the necessary funds to build and open the award-winning Opportunity Center and it continues to pursue other critical affordable housing projects. The CWG has gained great community support for its professionalism, commitment to affordable housing and support of the homeless, and effectiveness in meeting its mission and program objectives.
