Review for Coalition For Compassion And Justice, Prescott, AZ, USA
Unfortunately, CCJ has gone downhill over the past few years, due to poor management decisions. Instead of keeping its emergency winter shelter for the community, they tried to open free place to park cars and pitch tents in a residential neighborhood. After the community protested, they've purchased a run-down building for a wet shelter, where clients who have dropped out of sober living houses because they can't stay off drugs/alcohol can stay for $3 per night. The charity no longer helps working people with temporary financial problems stay housed, pay utility bills or fix a vehicle. Lots of feel-good programs like providing backpacks and Christmas gifts to kids, but no real lasting change for the community.
