Pleasant Run Children's Homes staff members were unqualified for the jobs they were given due to their lack of respect for the idividuals living in the placement along with the lack of maturity in which they took their jobs. I was a kid who lived in this facility when I was 12 years old. I lived there for almost 2 years. I was also one of the very first to arrive. For years I've been searching for ways to find these staff members so I can tell them exactally how terrible of a job they all did while working in this place. I am 29 years old now and still till this day am upset about how they treated everyone. The training room where the supervisors trained the newcomers how to restrain the patients, they only rough housed and fooled around by pulling various WWF moves on each other. When the restraining actually was needed they chose to body slam and punch instead. Certain staff members felt it was funny to make fun of and poke at the child patients throughout the days. When you reach level 4, you are allowed to bring in certain things from home that you usually are not permitted to bring in like stereos and stuffed animals along with other toys and forms of entertainment. Some of the staff were so cruel they would purposely mess with certain kids and get those kids to blow up. Once they do the staff places them on ground zero (the lowest level) then they take everything out of their room. If the staff find any of the kids belongings favorable, they would take it home with them never to be seen again. One of them stole my Gameboy and everything that went with it. I dont care now, but as a 12 year old boy it hurt. It hurt more when no one would believe you. Your therapist, mother, other family members. Afterall its a 12 year old patients word against a grown mans words. I heard several years ago that this facility was shut down and up for investigation. Dont think it will ever be back. If however it does then be warned this place was terrible for all of us. Their slogan "Helping Good Kids Get Better" should have been rewritten to " Helping Good Kids Get Worse". -Franklin.
