I am a former volunteer and board member. Members of the public, volunteers, donors, were always allowed to attend board meetings (except during portions that were "closed" to protect confidential information, as all boards must do). Street Teens is run by committed, caring people who are doing their best to help homeless and at-risk youth. I have never met a group of people who always go above and beyond to try to do what is right. I met many youth whose lives were changed by this organization.

I find it sad that almost half of the income taken in goes out in salaries and most of that is to the director. I notice that she also received a $3,000 raise in these financially trying times and I wonder who is authorizing this action.
In 2010 I worked there and was not allowed to attend the board meetings, donors also were not. I have been told that since moving into their new building they have been averaging 5 to 8 clients PER DAY , certainly not the amount they claim. It's a great idea, but over paying for staff and overstating amount served is not right.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?
