What to do with $500,000

Claiming your donations are being used to help the homeless is not always the truth. Half a million dollars could pay the rent for how many people for how long? That amount recently was paid to the retiring executive director by the board of directors of “The Keep”. Of course there was a non-disclosure agreement attached to the money, but that was violated the first day the outgoing executive had a hardcopy. The outgoing executive had expected a million dollars and was very upset about getting “only” half, showing the contract to everyone who would listen and with that violating the terms, but the board of directors went ahead and paid anyway. “The Keep”, claiming to care for the homeless will reimburse medical supplement insurance cost for the retiree as well.

However, the homeless people working at the “The Keep” receive a stipend every two weeks under the pretense they are being trained. The truth is that these homeless people are being exploited, there is no training and the positions they hold should be filled with employees. Matter of fact, most of the people running “The Keep” are homeless people paid via stipend, denying them lawful employee rights and protection.
