FIRMAN COMMUNITY SERVICES, Chicago, IL - Unfortunately, the Internet via many websites that have listed reviews are very true. The president of FCS is indeed a sadist, has SEVERE anger management issues and is frankly mentally unstable. She has paranoid and warped views of everyone around her, including the chairman of the FCS board. She exploits her staff in the most vicious of ways by airing their personal business amongst the staff via meetings, memos, phone and any other means of communications she sees fit in order to satisfy her pleasure of inflicting pain and unhappiness on others. She is unfit to lead what was once a fine institution, as FCS was formally a formidable community organization driven by the needs of the surrounding neighborhoods, its demographics and FCS’ mission to effect a positive impact by providing a myriad of social services including childcare and maternal-child health resourcing, as well as grassroots servicing such as clothing and feeding the needy.
The woman is an ascetic pariah that infects everyone around her, from the wonderful staff, parents, precious children and partner organizations, as well as city, state and federal government funders. Most funders are already well aware of the president’s mental instability, anger and lack of positive leadership issues, which have severely crippled the growth of the organization and FCS has now been reduced to merely shreds of its former standing as an upstanding community social service organization. Why funders have not reported her to the authorities is beyond me, as it has affected my conscious almost daily…the children, families and staff deserve so much better. To all “powers that be”, I implore you to please investigate, unfold and unearth the MANY, MANY, MANY illegal activities that have been so cleverly concealed by this individual; including financial looting/personal placement, fraudulent reporting, employer abuses, illegal & forced payroll/benefits limitation and alterations of material facts related to this organization’s mismanagement are simply overwhelming throughout this organization.
Save FCS from its ultimate demise under its current leadership; and rescue the precious children, families and staff from its torrential dictatorship. Restore humanity and pride to Firman…the staff, families and children all deserve better & are eagerly awaiting change and this cannot happen until this this vile individual is surgically eradicated from its reigns.
I will breathe a sigh of relief when something is ultimately done, as I am too lowly of an individual with the wherewithal of where to begin this surmountable task to direct a savior to Firman. Good luck and God bless.
