Basically I have overcome my disability. But need help cuz of all the years of abuse FROM people who don't understand me. To the point we're I get made. Then say stuff . So basically it's was a *** company trying to help me. When they didn't know what I was going through. So if I ever need to find an apartment again I am out of luck. Only because cc didn't listen to me when I was being abused by a company. And cc didnt do crap to help me so on a scale of 1to 5 being 1 sucks. I give them a 2on this ricter scale of crab apples. Hahaha

Staff break in, rude residents, hubris

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
You are better off not. They are experts th-i-e-v-e-s and li-ar-s. I live in a Catholic charities home and the staff dress nice, seem very boss, but they break into people's room quick and easy. I think it incentivizes them and emboldened them. The residents even look the other way if "you look different." Just manage on your own if you can. Customize everything so it's in easy reach. Never mind the dust. That's how 100 yr olds live during their 90s alone. Vote those rats out too.

Pros:
  • Connection to resources
  • Stable cheap housing
Cons:
  • Dirty mouthy residents
  • Some dishonest thick mentality

Preferred solution: Hire honest people with no agenda or axe to grind

The situation on the knocking was addressed thanks to this website. They conceded to allow emailing everyday to signal that we are living.

So instead every day you send an email to say good-morning. Unfortunately one of the head SW didn't like all the suggestions and blocked me, and it indicates how somewhat like cowardly that is to not even want to hear any feedback from the clients.

I have been trying to get a homemaker for a year . I've been trying to get in touch with them for a year. I've had a stroke and can't get around. I got to the point where someone from their office was supposed to come out and interview me. No show and no call. I can't even get in contact. What's going on?Don

Unprofessional psychiatrist

I had a horrible experience with their psychiatrist, Dr. Stancov. It was my first meeting with her and I was in a bad mood (a symptom of the reason I was there). She asked me a question I did not want to answer but because she continued to press, I relented and answered her question. After I answered her question she continued to escalate the confrontation. I asked her if she really wanted to continue escalating the argument and she continued with her barrage of incendiary comments. I pointed out that I had answered her question and that should have ended what was ultimately a power struggle of her creation. Furthermore rather than seeing me as a symptomatic patient, she played the ultimate power move and threatened not to treat me. I wish I had left, because what ensued during the rest of the visit was as damaging as the violence with which she acted. Adding to my unease was her physical presentation. Her hair appeared matted and her clothing was disheveled. This did nothing to inspire confidence.

I am sorry for your experience. Not to generalize but they dont have the same kind of controls that secular nonprofits might have.

They hire from within or people whose philosophy is more authoritarian. I have the same experience with a social worker in their housing. She stays cooped up in the office all day with other staff and instead of being the residents friend she plays all kinds of headgames. She has a broken clock on the wall so you cant tell how long into the meeting it is.

She is into total control. I cant tell her i think she is a bully because she is black. All i can do is not cooperate and tell her i have the right to remain silent or contact a lawyer. They are getting more and more of these pushy aggressive types from Nigeria in Maryland.

The bad ones always stand out because they acted like that in the old country.

So is it any wonder they find the church a safe haven. Its a great place to be a stealth bully.

Won't stop harassing five years later

Catholic Charities is one of the worst Charities in the world. I donated $25 after the Philippines typhoon in 2012 or 2013. Since that time, CC has been calling or mailing me nonstop, spending much more than the $25 I gave them on fundraising. After I donated, they called me every other month for two years and sent me mail ever other month. I have actually screamed at the people who call and demand that they remove me from their list to no avail. More than half a decade later, Catholic Charities relentlessly harasses me every 30 days. {{REDACTED}}

Cashing my check

I tried to cash my paycheck from Catholic charities at a check cashing place and was told that there was a block on Catholic Charities because Catholic Charities owed them money....I went to a second check cashing place and was told the same thing they said there was too many bounced checks from Catholic Charities...Thats embarrassing and a shame .I thought the bible said we are to be good stewards with our money . I would think that this institution should be a good example .Also the law says if you work 8 hours somewhere you are intittled to anon working half hour break .. the do not provide for this.

Stephanie at CC DC thinks being in a position of power means being authoritarian SE style mean loud short rude and nasty. She misplaced my rent check.

She never greets me except with "what do you need." Her business knows no limits and her voice sounds like a buzzsaw, rough and shrill. If she disappeared that check I am going to file a report. No apt I have lived in has such mean incompetent staff. Just to pay rent she produces 4 sheets of paper for me to review and sign every month.

Catholic charities requires such a paper trail for low income supportive housing rent they need to hire an extra person and all he does is organize files all day long.

You supply the information, they grow a file, and the new guy is Nigerian too. Either Nigerian or Latina they love to do clerical work at CC.

Yep. I had the same experience with her.

Ask her a question. If she is busy and you interrupt her inconveniently she writes you up. Today I asked to speak to the SW. She eventually went to ask her to see me.

Through the closed doors "The B-t-ch wants something from you!" shouted with scorn and laughter. I dont know if it was me but they were both laughing and I do know that is about how well they regard us. The Stephanie cannot empathize or thinks its all about usury & power, a certain type of skin tone power.

This is why people clients give up asking social workers for help. They are too callous.

Really bad counselors older male a

I went to catholic charities in Orlando fl on 1819 semoran blvd some years ago for counseling. There was a terrible older male there he had white hair thin and was such a bad counselor and rude person. Not sure why that sicko is even working as a counselor. Wanted to warn people about him he's abusive to women. If I get his name I'll post it and he's rude condescending I went to catholic charities in Orlando fl on 1819 semoran blvd some years ago for counseling.
