Review for Community Working Group, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA
CWG is known as an organization that delivers on its promises. It fostered the creation of a service center for our local unhoused population when that goal seemed impossibly idealistic. Not only was the center built but it grew to include permanent housing for its target population, changing the shape and destiny of poverty in our community for the good -- and for the long term. The organization continues to foster the health of this center while seeking out new opportunities to house the most vulnerable. The organization's credibility is such that even in recessionary times it continues to be able to raise money for the causes it believes in. Its good will in the community is a priceless asset.
