Review for The Rock at NoonDay, Albuquerque, NM, USA
One of the very worst to the community it literally shoved its way into the neighborhood without any public hearing or input...and then now fences in its property so that it's clients do not stay on their property but go everywhere in the vicinity to sleep, do drugs, buy drugs, vandalize, terrorize and attack business owners and their customers! THEY HAVE LITERALLY FORCED LONG LASTING BUSINESSES TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS EVEN NATIONAL COMPANIES LIKE MAACO HAD TO SHUT THEIR DOORS DUE TO HARASSMENT BY THE HOMELESS WHO VISIT NOON DAY FOR A MEAL- when THEY HAVE ANOTHER PLACE TO EAT RIGHT DOWN THE ROAD!
THIS NON-profit went in without public hearing and it duplicates services of another nonprofit a few blocks away- IT IS NOT NEEDED AND NOT WANTED BY THE NEIGHBORHOOD. It serves food to seniors who already have a program through the senior programs and is a huge waste of money to its director and staff and the building itself which spent 10000s on the sign - and the logo- THE ROCK! It also is a scam which serves as a basketball court to its youth group--when its mission is not basketball to a youth group and the extremely tall ceilings are a complete waste heat and cool air! An expensive wood floor for the basketball court were unnecessary expenses that benefit the group that runs the facility not the homeless!
The staff does not care what their clients do and they say they do not control them when they leave. This place is a sham- absolute...it is not needed and not wanted. It trashed out the area where it was on Broadway in back of the church-then it was shoved in our neighborhood and now has destroyed this neighborhood... it is not a church in any way and those who say they preach the gospel are lying - they do not care what they are doing to the neighborhood and they are doing nothing to help the homeless- but duplicating food ! They are getting large donations to do nothing. They need to move to an area outside of town- instead of taking advantage of a neighborhood due to improper zoning. They lied to the neighborhood and said they were a church...they are not a church. They are not wanted by anyone who lives and has businesses in the area -- and they are not doing any good to enable people to eat and do drugs and live on the street. Alb is getting a large homeless pop from other cities and Noon Day is getting big bucks to be a sham whose clients stab business owners with knives, attack pets, defacate, urinate and shoot heroin in our neighborhoods and close by parks! THEY NEED TO BE RELOCATED- out of the city limits PERIOD== no reason all the homeless services are a few blocks from downtown- to destroy the city of Albuquerque! It was such a joke when it opened- very expensive catered food and valet parking for the VIPS of the city to go to a homeless feeding place????? From the very beginning - it has been a huge waste of money in that all it does is duplicate feeding. We never needed this facility at all--and now it is destroying everything around it- people's lives are literally being ruined by this non-profit whose clients do not care what destruction they cause to the community and neither do the director and staff.
