They should rename to Mt Shernell in memory of second resident who has passed away in less than a year. Both deaths somewhat a mystery. Shernell came to this house as a frail elderly AfriAm. She'd had a stroke previously and due to limited mobility they placed her on...

You make sure to deny the release of information. The program rules were updated but are backdated to 2011 (apparently).

There is a no sign option to the contract although most residents do sign. They may not be given a full copy. They recently posted a program design/overview. As it is (re)written the social worker has an outsized role that is quite disproportionate.

On every single page social worker/case manager is referred to at least once. Here the social worker/case manager are one same person. I believe she rewrote this for her benefit and to play god. The Senior Program Manager (the figurative supervisor of the case manager/social worker) is mentioned only once!

While ET is assured a full page worth under section for case management. And this completely outsized role of case management fits with her personality. She has morphed into an oppressive authoritarian with a ruthless bulldoggish stare. She asserted recently there is not anything here she does not have the authority to be involved in.

In fact descriptors in the section refer to her as GUIDE, CHALLENGER, SOURCE in capital letters. We are to regard her as support, share our doubts and frustrations, while she has the authority to reprimand, direct our attention, monitor our compliance daily, and remind us of our future. This is pretty much comprehensive including her right to share her concerns for us. In no place does this "Big Sister" refer to herself as a friend (although she would only be an Arnold Friendly type.) I am certain she has re/written the program overview to extricate herself from any contentions.

Everyone living here is merely categorized as "formerly homeless." In reality in my opinion the SW/CM might be using her outsized role for not only minimizing any other staff role, to assure her unquestionable authority, but to augment her oppressive agenda. So she is like playing god over us lately after all, doesnt the program design authorize her to fulfill that?

She has lasted through 3 other senior program directors and we our on our fourth in 2 years. If one questions why there is overt favoritism, covert activities, secret verbal agreements, allowances of targeting "nonentities": she_esbe all over and giving out the avil eyes.
