While some of the Organization's outreach programs are great, some are simply money makers at the expense of the clients they claim to serve. They do not treat the homeless with any dignity. They take advantage of donors and are making a large amount of money and not putting it to good use to serve the homeless with their Pinellas Hope project.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their imigrant farm workers houssing and help - they did a good job and in Pinellas Hope they failed miserably at actually helping the homeless

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Use donations to really help people and spend money more wisely.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

nothing. They are unwilling to listen to reasonable requests from other organizations like the Homeless Coalition or the City mayor.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very nice and dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it would not spend it wisely to do the good that anther organization could do with the same amount!

Ways to make it better...

they treated homeless with more dignity, actually supplied them with a real shelter (not a tent) and did not put them in deplorable, substandard living conditions

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Their own leadership (presidnt and CEO, especially the CEO) and their arrogance
