Family Focus, Inc.
November 12, 2012

This organization practices unethical standards. Many of their reports to funders are false such as to DHS, CPS, and ISBE PI programs. Money in the form of gift cards were kept by the center directer for many many years. Documents were falsified stating that the 100.00, 50.00, and 200.00 gift cards were give to participants and they were not. So called signed verification sheets stating that participants received gift cards were marked in by staff that this money was received by them. A binder was created and given to Inc accountant Tarita Anderson was created and have in it that participants received gift cards and they did not. A very very small percentage maybe. I know because I created the binder under the direction of Lawndale's center director. Those cards were kept by the center director. I was there. This went on for over three years. Food purchased from Sams Club was food given to employee, center. director's mother, aunts and other family members.
