I have dealt with this organization the past year, and would never recommend this organization to a potential volunteer, staff member, or donor. The senior staff proved shockingly bad in their use of resources and leadership, and it seemed that they abuse their employees. They did have a few good staff members running programs and campaigns, but I saw these individuals quit the organization or be fired. Their financial practices are not solvent at all and large dollar amounts are wasted on personal expenses of senior staff and poor management. They hired young directors who have little experience and are very inept are their positions in order to make their leadership look viable. Poor poor poor leadership from the president and coo. Very disappointing. I will never work with them again, and will advise all fellow organizations to steer away from a partnership with them. Such a misuse of my organization's time.
