Like so many good stories, CWG’s begins with a storm! El Niño rains flooded our community’s local homeless drop-in center in 1998, and a group came together to share ideas and resources to create the Opportunity Center, the first permanent supportive housing complex in Santa Clara County. Thus began Community Working Group.

As we look back at a decade of providing homes and hope for men, women, and children in our community, we are excited to share details about this highly effective affordable home model! Look for more stories to come in future months about the Opportunity Center, the partners who brought it to reality, and the clients who have taken the opportunities offered there and transformed their lives and futures.
