Review for Community Working Group, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I am a volunteer, board member and donor to the Community Working Group in support of its mission to provide service facilities and housing for those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. CWG developed an intergrated facility with services and supportive house. Getting families and individuals housed and then providing much needed counselling, health and other support services has been a winning combination to successfully helping people gain selfesteen and motivation.
