Review for Roseville Home Start, Inc., Roseville, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

There are better homeless centers to donate to or assist. Roseville Home Start states it's purpose is to "transition homeless children and families into affordable, sustainable, permanent housing and self-sufficiency", but the program is little more than a shelter, and operates well below their capacity. Can accommodate 30 families with 99 beds, but many times the center will only have a few families living there, while other female/child shelters are at capacity and expanding. Most families drop out of the program before the one year contract, so housing placement and job assistance is not a priority of the center and is non-existent. All money earned/saved by families are administered by the staff and if a family drops out of the program, families see their saving mysteriously disappear or made-up fees for services materialize. Families are not giving printed statements/balance so their is no means for a family to accurately balance their own accounts.
