This organization is the closest thing to "the mob" that I have ever witnessed. It exploits foster children and adjudicated youth. It fails to deliver educationally. Even CPS has become hesistant to place even the most challenged youth there due to the danger and the bad influence of the organization and its employees. Money is the motivator for Azleway. Its victims are the children. Its founder has amassed over 3000 acres under its tax exempt non-profit status. It takes in almost 13 million dollars per year, but other than the entire families it hires, one would be hard-pressed to find where the money goes.
