Joanna Dela Cruz, Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice, Minor in Counseling and Social Psychology from San Diego State University

"My experience at CARR allowed me to gain a greater understanding of the disadvantages prevalent within San Diego and California's senior communities while strengthening my skills related to research, investigations, and data entry.  Being able to work with Chris Murphy and Christina Selder was inspiring.  Their commitment to consumers and ensuring RCFEs are providing quality care is what makes this experience with CARR that much more consequential."

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.
