Review for Center For Living and Learning, Van Nuys, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CLL does an amazing job at bridging two sides of this sector: service provision and policy/advocacy. There are few organizations that are able to embrace and encompass both pieces of this important work to improve the lives of formerly incarcerated people and enhance public safety through reducing recidivism. CLL produces excellent results in terms of turning around the lives of their many clients, but also makes a tremendous effort to organize and inform other stakeholders, as well as engage with elected officials and other decision makers to achieve the changes in the system that are so desperately needed.
