My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Carpenter's Shelter, Alexandria, VA, USA
This is indeed, a boondoggle type of place. People really are stupid if they believe that this place actually cares for the homeless. I've been "served" here before and mostly it's just power hungry case managers looking for a power fix and more money for their company. They are selfish with resources, they have a shelter van they never use, and staff members have stolen food from the food pantry. I have spoken with Saint Mary's Catholic Church parisioners and they were disgusted by my experience. While I was staying there, one girl was harassed by staff members about when she would receive her money from an accident she'd had.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Investigate this organization! From my understanding of Community Service Board in Alexandria, the government or the powers that be have rreceived multiple complaints. Take no wooden nickels. Talk to the residents that aren't ass kissers to the staff and get the real truth.
