Reviews for Emerge Inc
Emerge is an exceptional non profit organization. I learned about the organization during a networking event in Baltimore about two months ago. Their mission is admirable and it's amazing that they have been serving people with disabilities for 40 years.

My name is Campbell hook and I was served by emerge Inc from 1995-2009 emerge changed my behavior in many ways and did many good things for me. Around 2005 my father had gotten involved with the agency as a volunteer as president and ceo as Dave wamsley was executive director. And did a lot to wonderful things. Around 2008 the higher managemt got out of control and became really controlling. The board president at that time was trying to help and develop change within emerge. The executive director got members of the board tougher without the board president present. And had the president and ceo voted off as president and ceo. Reasoning the executive director as nervous about being terminated by the board. At which time a meeting was held we will call an it. The executive director of emerge DAVID H WAMSLEY had a no discharge policy for all consumers. As which time I was dimity was discharged for being the sun of the president in lama’s terms i as a counsumer i would recemmend any parent who whats a better life for there child take a harder look at other agencys chimes arc and so on

Ways to make it better...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
THEY NEED A NEW EXECTIVE DIRECTOR THAT IS NOT SO CONTROLING
One thing I'd also say is that...
EMERGE HIDES A LOT OF INFORMATION FROM DDA AND ITS DONORS OF SUCH PRACTICES
