Review for The Path Of Citrus County Inc, Beverly Hills, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I just finished reading all the reviews for The Path and after reading some of the posts I felt inclined and moved by the Spirit to write what I know from my time at The Path. First of all the situation is not black and white, some people who work there truly wish to help people and are driven by the Lord himself but no organization is perfect. I am sorry to say that it is my opinion that the director is not genuine. He is simply full of himself and he may help people but he is definately doing it for the wrong reasons. Like his weekly bible studies he gives at his own personal church. It is nothing but a big show where he demands that the residents cow down to him and he takes this time to belittle and embarrass people he doesnt care for. As for the Kristy situation, I feel sorry for her and she means well but it is true that she was forced to marry that guy or be fired, I'm sorry Kristy but you know it is true and at the time I was there he was on drugs, not at first but after I was there a month or so and it truly broke Kristy's heart and I am sorry to hear that things got worse for her and her family. Her children are good kids and a reflection of their mothers love. Rebecca loved her, she was a good counselor a little pushy but in a good way. I do not regret my time at The Path, I felt cared about and I was able to really make a solid connection with Jesus and I could feel his love. I did not care for the double standard, in the womens house we where on lock down and on constant video survalliance. Where the guys had two houses one for newbees and one for 90 days or more and they had no cameras and I know for a fact that the men drank, snuck out. This one guy hide the fact that he had a bank account and recieved a direct deposit of 412.00 dollars a month for an annuity and his parents hid it from The Path and they are the ones that brought him there. He has a cell phone and went to the plaza down the street and played those video gambling machines and blew all his money. He was an idiot. Also the problem was they would throw you out if you talked to the opposite sex but they put us together daily. Work, church, bible study. It was impossible not to develop friendships with the members of the opposite sex and I allowed myself to be influenced by a jerk when I was working my problem perfectly. I know regret this, but anyway back to The Path itself, It is a safe, clean loving place to go if you truly want to help yourself. It is not over crowded like The Mission and they do tell you you can stay as long as you want as long as you follow the rules. I would definately recommend The Path over being homeless and using drugs and flushing your life down the drain. In case the staff has figured out who I am I would like you all to know that I long ago got rid of the idiot that caused my departure. I am no longer homless, I have reunited with my family, got my nursing license renewed and my drivers license. I had the thyroid surgery I needed. I am currently being treated by a wonderful doctor and my health has greatly improved. I took an LPN refresher course and will soon be returning to nursing. I have remained clean for over 2 years now. I still have a close bond with Jesus and I am truly happy. God Bless you all. I dont know why you all or duwayne tried to keep me from getting my nursing license, if it wasnt for that I would have been perfectly happy to stay there. It was not yalls decision to make and you should think about that the next time. After I left I wanted to come back what was I thinking hooking up with that looser, oh and I really did not sleep with him kristy. I dont care if you believe me or not because God and I know the truth. I was just lonely and hurting over my husbands death and he gave me money to get my drivers licensed renewed online at the library and he was helping me renew my nurisng license so I thought he was nice, but he wasnt he was crazy and he said he wanted to kill his parents. I am not gossiping I am saying this to warn other girls who might fall prey to they same kind of guy while trying to get help for themselves. Thank you for everything you did for me Rebecca. I love you and Bob too.
