Consumer Advocates for RCFE Reform (CARR), a San Diego-based not-for-profit, announces that as of 31 October 2020 it has closed its doors.  Founded in 2009 by Christina LaBlanc Selder and Chris Murphy, CARR has been the state's only organization focusing exclusively on consumer information, advocacy, education and policy concerning California's residential care facilities for the elderly (RCFEs).  

"On behalf of CARR, I am very grateful a productive decade of helping families find suitable assisted living facilities for loved ones and advocating for industry accountability,"  said Chris Murphy, Executive Director and Co-Founder of CARR.  "I would like to thank the members of our board of directors, as well as the many donors, volunteers, interns, and follow staff who made important contributions along the way."
