My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Methodist Children's Home Society, Detroit, MI, USA
Conditions of cottage 703 on November 25, 2015. Too many pictures to post. When demanded answers from executive staff, no response. Staff admits " you are right it shouldn't be this way!!!" but State of Michigan cps/dhhs keeps placing children here? Known health department violations since 2014. Board members, volunteers, donors should be concerned as to where the money is going. Obliviously not into maintenance. Direct staff has excuses for all questions. "Your right it shouldn't be this way!" "I'm looking for a new job!" "I just started" Poor vulnerable children live in these horrific unsafe conditions. Three weeks later its still the same, biological matter in floors, drapes, carpet, mattresses, walls, mold in bathroom, debris in return registers, heat registers with sharp sheet metal exposed. It smells. Food prep kitchen has food all over walls and ceiling. Profanity on doors and walls. Each room was destroyed and littered with children's clothing& debris if a fire was to happen at night the children may not get out safely ...but they clean daily? What i do know is Animals shelters, prisons, college dorms are better kept. I am so sad our government and this Christian org thinks this is acceptable! The 72 acres is the best thing about this nonprofit. Suggestion shut this place down, demand policies, visit cottages of your choice, question random children. Seems kids run wild and have no structure.
