CARR's internship program was created in 2012; since then we have a field-intern site for San Diego State University, University of California - Irvine, California State University at Fullerton, and American River College. We attract Gerontology, as well as Criminal Justice and Public Administration majors. CARR's unique internship program consists of harvesting public records from the state's regulatory agency over assisted living facilities - Community Care Licensing (CCL).
You do offer the best learning in town!"-- SDSU School of Social Work
Are you interested in investigative research? Are you passionate about elder justice or government transparency? Are you curious about our aging population and how it affects policy? Consumer Advocates for RCFE Reform (CARR) is a San Diego-based, advocacy organization dedicated to improving resident care in assisted living facilities by educating consumers and increasing industry accountability. Our work is exclusively based on the public documents we harvest from California’s Department of Social Services and other state and local agencies since 2009. We are a small team with a novel perspective and a lot of enthusiasm.
