Hard to understand how an organization can afford to pay $450K in CEO comp, and have a Board full of developers with contracts for their buildings, and be a top rated organization. Foster parents work all day, every day, for housing and $23K per year, while taking care of 6 childrens needs. This model is broken.

I reached out to this organization through their website to inquire about volunteering opportunities a couple times over the past year and never received a response from them. I even wrote a personal email to a contact listed on their website about this and never received a response.
