As both a recipient of their help and an employee I have seen first-hand the good and bad of this organization. As a recipient I can tell you they do have some great programs however, I have to say, what I truly have seen as an employee of this organization has been very disappointing. I have witnessed first-hand how some of the donor dollars are being spent to pay for alcohol and bar tabs from each level within the organization - from a board member, a director, a manager, and specialists. To hear them state they justified it by stating they were either labeling it under "team building" or "client relations" is a preposterous. They are quick to take your donations but do you realize they receive so much that now they are providing grants to other organizations instead of boosting their own programs. By the way, organizations wanting to apply for these grants must also sign documentation stating how they will not use the term, or similar, wounded within any of their documentation to provide assistance to that population since WWP wants to make certain to control that term and keep other organizations with similar missions from receiving donations which WWP feels was intended for them. I wanted to provide you all with this factual bit of information from someone with first-hand knowledge of the inner workings of this organization. Every chance I get I expose their true colors to potential donors.
