180 Turning Lives Around Inc.
July 29, 2013

I put client served, but was not actually served by 180. I went for counseling, but the counselor was a young person with absolutely no life experience who seemed surprised by some of the things I told her about my experience as a domestic violence victim, and was judgmental when I explained the effects it had on me. I was referred to an outside counselor with more experience, but she charged $90 an hour and I could not afford that as I was underemployed and has to pay for child care also in order to make the two appointments I paid for.

There is no job assistance offered. The Board of Directors, like many boards in this area, are people who only seem to be involved so they can get free advertising for their business, or get their picture in the Two River People section of the local society rag.

If this organization really wanted to help women turn their lives around, they would include helping find _good_ jobs as part of their services. If the board of directors were truly committed to helping domestic violence survivors, they would offer assistance in finding good jobs which pay enough for women to not have to rely on a partner to get ahead in life.

This dismal organization only exists to make rich people feel like they are helping by writing checks rather than actually interacting with or meaningfully helping domestic violence survivors and their children "turn their lives around".
