CareLink Community Support Services is an organization that survives solely on the work of underpaid direct service employees. The management and administration on the other hand, is out of touch and extremely unethical. The CEO of the organization views it after almost 30 years as her own personal playground, and cares more about getting to the Phillies Game, than being in her office and running the organization for which taxpayers, donors, and contract dollars pay her over $100,000 a year to do. The board of directors is lax, and composed of many of her good friends. They lead blindly without question of her work, salary, or high employee turnover rates. CareLink is a perfect example of how we have dropped the ball as donors and taxpayers in neglecting to hold leaders accountable, and writing checks to organizations no questions asked.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
