BUILDING A SOLID FOUNDATION
September 18, 2013

BASF is not what they claim to be. Being a Christian myself, I find it heartbreaking that this organization stands for something good, and yet goes about it the wrong way. Wanting to help those who suffer from substance abuse and homelessness is a compassionate gesture that does deserve recognition and support, however... lying to get the donations is just wrong. These guys claim to be volunteers, but that is not true. These guys are paid 50% of what they earn daily ( of course that is if they make a certain minimum). Free housing? Not exactly, they must pay a daily rent amount to be in this "shelter" which of course they pay out of their 50% that they make. I don't really put the blame on these guys because they are the ones that have to go out 6 days a week, 12 hours a day (inc travel time) and beg for donations so they can stay in this "so called" shelter. I put full responsibility on the owner Rodney Nolen for using these guys and their addictions as a means to profit. I am not here to tell you whether or not to donate. That choice is yours. I just wanted to tell you the truth about this organization. Be honest, BASF, tell those who may donate the truth, live like the Christians you claim to be.
