    Negative Outlook


    Locations of program sites are easy to get to by public transportation.


    This is one of the worst places to work. The organization functions on lies starting with the ED. Everyone walks around on egg shells afraid of the ED and how she speaks to people. She discusses staff with other staff, talks bad about other organizations in the community and feed lies to people who give the organization money. The Board d does not have a clue what goes on inside the organization. The ED have all her children working there and they act like they are in charge. Upper management is a joke. They are all confusing and change things around frequently. No consistency of any policies, it depends on which staff person is in trouble and the penalty differs from someone else who may have done the same thing. Families do not go to the activities and the numbers are forged. Unprofessional environment which starts from the top and trickles down.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with the Board and donors . Allow staff to have input in decision making and stop playing favoritism among staff because they are the boss children.
