Review for Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg, Inc., St. Petersburg, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

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.

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

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & attempted to work with the organization to improve their homeless outreach.
