Rating: 1

I received amazing case management from the Treasure Island Office. My assigned case manager was there to support me while I faced domestic violence, life threatening emergency surgery AND A LENGTHY RECOERY PROCESS. CPS TRIED TO REMOVE MY CHILD DUE TO TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS RECEIVED. CASE MANAGER WAS THERE. PROPERTY MANAGER TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MY DIBILATATED CONDTION AND ALLOWED MY UNIT TO REMAIN UNINHABITABALE FOR 10 MONTHS. CASE MANAGER ADVOCATED WITH NO SUCCESS. SO I SUED AND THAT IS WHEN I SAW WHAT THIS NON PROFIT REALLY WAS. AFTER SUBPOENA PROVIDED TO CASE MANAGER. THE AGENCY CALLED ME THEDAY BEFORE COURT TO INFOMR ME THAT MY CASE MANAGER COULD NOT COMPLY WITH A SUBPOENA NOR COULD SHE TESTIFY TO ANYTHING PERTAINING TO HER KNOWLEDGE OF MY SITUATION WHILE I WAS CLIENT. A COUPLE DAYS LATER REMOVED MY CASE MANAGER. I NOW RECEIVE NO SUPPPORT. AT A DESPERATE TIME. I HAVE AN UPCOMING HOSPITAL ADMISSION AND I REQUESTED SUPPORT TO AFEGGURAD MY FAMILY WHILE IN THE HOSPITAL. NO RESPONSE. I GO TO THE HOSPITAL IN LESS THEN 2 DAYS. THE UPERVISOR AT THAT SITE SAID SHE COULD HELP UNTIL SHE DECODES TO ASSIGN A CASE MANAGER. AND IN ALL REALITY I CAN VERY WELL BE DEAD. I HAVE A 36% SURVIVAL RATE APPROACHING AND IT IS NOW THAT THE ONE PERSON WHO HAS SUPPORTED ME AND I GREW TO TRUST. CATHOLIC CHARITIES REMOVES BECAUSE SHE TRIED TO ADVOCATE FOR ME. NEXT TIME I AM SUPPOSED TO KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT AND MAYBESOMEON WILL HELP ME. OR MAYBE IT WIL BE TO LATE
