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

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my capacity as a volunteer and as a grant writer and fundraiser. We were able to gain significant community, individual, foundation, corporate and governmental support for the CWG's projects.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure that the word about the CWG reached everyone in the local community and beyond!

Role:  Volunteer & I was a volunteer to gain support for the building of the Opportunity Center through my church and an interfaith community organizing group. I was also a grant writing and fundraising contractor.
