Columbia non-profit maintains an invisible profile. Is it in existence just to provide a couple of cushy jobs to its administrators? Helping the most vulnerable?(their words). They have turned over the maintenance, rent collection, management of one of their properties to a for-profit management firm that have raised my rent $100 in he last year. There is no sign of life from Columbia np. If you contact them they do not respond but forward all communications to that for-profit, Key property Services. Don't get me started with the performance of that company. I paid my rent on the fifth of September and by the 14th my check had not been deposited. I left a message on their phone and never got a response. Got their maintenance person involved. Never got a response from them either. Finally in checking with my bank on the 16th I found that the check had been deposited on that day. My concern was that I did not want to be assessed the $75 late payment of rent fee. Helping the most vulnerable? I hardly think so. Take a survey at England Manor. Most tenants do not even know that Columbia non-profit is the owner of the property. And from what I see on your website, GuideStar, they are pretty secretive about their operation and furnish you with very little info about themselves.
