My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Community Working Group, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA
I am a social service worker who has seen first hand the amazing work that Community Working Group has done for Palo Alto and the greater Bay Area community. CWG was the guiding force for the construction and implementation of a low income housing complex in Palo Alto which includes 88 units for familes and single adults. For some of these families and adults, this housing was the first they have experienced in years.
CWG's advocacy continues as they work with the property managers, social service staff and the greater community to advocate for low income and homeless families and adults. Thanks to their hard work and generosity many of the individuals have become self sufficent and remain housed.
In my profession, it is so great to have non-for profit organizations help advocate and provide services for those who go without, especially now with the economy and other govermental cuts in services. CWG does this in the utmost professional manner and are great to collaborate with for needed local services.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Working with CWG to help keep people housed, as well as advocacy for housing rights.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
hope that the agency gets larger so we could collaborate more often.
