Reviews for Sudanese - American Cultural Society Of Greater Philadelphia Ar
Amazing people! Although things were a little hectic, they were so generous and welcoming. The culture is beautiful and they have so many interesting stories if you are willing to listen! A lot of them are refugees, but not all, and some have travelled all over the world, and speak many languages. Good people overall, and wonderful culture!
The members of this organization have no respect for anyone. They allow their children to run up and down the street at all hours of the night, screaming outside as if they were at a playground. This goes on until around the midnight hours. Many times these young children & toddlers are outside at these late hours of the night without adult supervision. They have awoken me many times and kept me from falling asleep when I have to be up at 5 am for work. The adults are also loud, ignorant, and disrespectful. They too, at times, stand and sit outside into the late hours of the night having loud conversations as if they were at a state park or something. They also try parking in private driveways and blocking driveways with their vehicles. The building to which this organization is located is in a residential area and I'm sure it's not zoned for what they're using it for. I'm sure they are also in violation of fire safety code as they no doubtedly far excede the legal occupancy limit for the area they are in. In closing, I also highly doubt that they even are a non profit organization. They're probably using that as a cover for a tax break of some sort. The IRS, L & I, and Immigration officials should take a closer look at this group.

The members of this organization are ignorant, they have no regard or respect for people living in the area, and disregard local laws. They park illegally, blocking driveways, parking in private driveways, leaving their toddlers and youth run up & down the street making noise at all hours of the night, even after curfew. They allow their children to go on neighbors properties, leaving discarded disposable cups, plates, & food all over the ground and leaning on local residents vehicles. The building to which they are located is a residential building housing three apartments & one office, where they are located. The office is not zoned for so many people and if there is a fire marshal occupancy certificate I'm sure they are in violation of it most of the time. Licenses & inspections should get involved. Immigration officials may want to check their legality as well.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my daily life!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
teach them manners & respect of others property & courtesy for others, and I would move them to an area more appropriate, with a large parking lot, and away from the public since they don't respect anyone.
