I agree with your comments as they applied to the staff in 2011; however, the shelter has recently hired a new executive director who is both capable and people friendly. Please feel free to drop by and visit with us to see the positive changes that have been made.

I have been a public supporter of J. Roy for years. Like any organization, it has its employee and employer minor issues. However, under its new directorship I have serious concerns about how all donations and earnings on the emergency forster care side of the house are being managed.

The new director seems out of her element and not capable of managing anything from the money, to employees (director's lack of interpersonal skills) to donations, and understanding the legal issues such as hiring family and friends to perform work (paid for by the shelter), and failing to use volunteers rather than pay for services...

I am afraid with the issues the shelter is having our children may not have a safe place to go to for very long.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

n/a

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

put someone in charge who understands the law and has social skills that will create an environment of support and contentment that will be enjoyable for the children to go to after leaving or being taken from a disfunctional home.
