I have been looking for a place to send a guy down on his luck. He needs and wants a job. As of today he is homeless and not sure where to start to get help. I am going to take him to this facility as I read the review form the the lady in West University. I also live in West U and if i find this is indeed a place that really really helps the homeless I will also donate to them and I will urge my friends to do so. I will post my findings tomorrow 9/9/12

I was employee of this organization and am here to say that employees are treated much differently than clients. I was discriminated due to a mental illness disability and was offered no adjustment to the job when I revealed my bipolar diagnosis. This non-profit needs to have some adjustments in the way they treat employees.

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

In the inappropriate manner in which I was treated.

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

I would have sensitivity training mandatory and have attorneys advice staff on how to work with employees with a disability
