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

Rating: 4 stars  

The Community Working Group (CWG) is one of a very few organizations on the San Francisco peninsula dedicated to helping people in the lowest income levels. The organization works to make sure that adequate services are provided and is responsible for two properties that provide very hard-to-find housing for very low income people, including the disabled. CWG engages the community in dialog about the importance of maintaining economic diversity; works with locally elected officials to make sure that local housing policies include low income people; and actively seeks partners to locate, plan and develop new facilities. I'm proud to serve on this board.
