PASS CHRISTIAN DELISLE COMMUNITY CENTER
November 26, 2012

The Marsha Barbour center is CLOSED. Unfortunately this center was built too far from communities that it could have served. The community where it was built does not support it due to their lack of disposable income. Grants seem to have been spent elsewhere, and no maintenance is being provide for the building, or pool area. Last time I tried to use the pool it was covered in green slime and no one was around to answer questions. The phone has been disconnected. The people who run this center also run apartments in Gulfport for homeless people, and donate goats for people in the Sudan. No audit has ever been done at the Marsha Barbour center, so who knows how funds are being spent. According to their last 1099 some of their funds were spent on their apartments rather than on the Marsha Barbour center, or at least thats how it appears to me.
