Client Served

Rating: 1

I am a client poorly "not served". The staff attorney for Housing Services was not supportive and did not have adequate information about crucial issues involving SSA policies or housing law. I wasted over an 90 minutes detailing my situation and then was asked for all kinds of information to create a case file. I believe they are using these screenings as a means to falsify statistics on clients served in order to secure grants and other donations to support their hefty salaries and amenities.
