Re: “Last Chance Motel

oh yeah the community service varies from security overnight in which 2 guys tenants are required to stay outside the entire night patrolling the property, while thier hired security is asleep collecting a check for being back-up if needed, , laundry, answering phones, filing paperwork, daycare if her daughter decides she wants to do it, down to sweeping dirt out of the drive, and washing it. never saw some do anything, Her daughter comes late at night after curfew sitting outside with tenants till four am, they all stay up that late then they are up at 8 daily. their government issued funds or donations were meant to upgrade the program so tenants could find jobs and resources easier doesnt even work. all furniture and computers, linens, ect were donated from Springs Mission. If you ask me maybe they should have gotten the grant, bc they are the ones actually helping. I hope someone does fund a program similar to this that is non bias. All Teresa does is complain about having to help people, then cries about everything she has done and no one appreciates it. Oh no we appreciate all the help, not the judgments, rumors, telling of all our business to others there, attitude when things are not done when and exactly how the program director wants them done, ex. kids cant be outside unless she ok's it, moving chairs outside. laundry is done one day a week at a certain time for 3hrs, if its open early you have to do when they say no matter what you have going on or you dont get to do laundry that week. Even when working your mandatory community service, meetings, check ins, and volunteering of your time out of work is still required. Along with a mandatory donation of 30% of ANY $ you bring into your room while staying there. Quote from Teresa " IT's my way or the highway, you choose" Rules may be altered as she sees fit including your dress code. Female cannot even wear shirts that show their stomache, spaghetti straps, or anything else she doesnt like, except her kids bc even as though they are on property they are no part of the program, as well as she claims with curfew and drugs. Guys are profiled by their attire as well. They claim they dont even have funds for maintenance it has to come out of their own pocket, but I thought that is what some of the grant money was suppose to be for, upgrades. Not a bonus at the end of the month for employees that dont even hold up their job title. Like people with paid vactions when they want it just bc they can. Teresa turned down a family with children just a couple weeks ago, because her daughter was using a room as personal back-up in case her living arrangements elsewhere didnt work out.... Someone please step in and get this homeless outreach program back on track, for the homeless not the disabled who dont want to pay the full amount of rent at an appartment with their monthly checks..... Its suppose to be for those in need.... Not the lazy!!!

Re: “Last Chance Motel

so only one to two people there have jobs, due to the current amount of people on ssi, there is not much room for families that have nothing. amost everyone there will piss dirty for pot, teresa overlooks it, families are evicted for who they talk to, and hang out with. each adult has 8hrs community service per week, and they still expect you to drop what your doing and help them with anything else they might want. curfew. cannot stay gone overnight without permission, plays favorites severely, with alot of the families.... Teresa tried to force me to keep my toddler locked in our room for two weeks, completely for being in contact with other children sick, even with a dr clearance. She would threaten to kick us out for not following directions. But all the other kids of the parents she favors literally would ALL be outside, all day everyday. My family was evicted less than a wk before I was due to start work, due to a hot UA yet just passed one for my job. I dont do drugs, my husband only smokes pot. The UA was administered by Teresa's daughter who quickly cover the test and said you can wait outside, to both me and my husband. Literally half the people there do all kinds of drugs, show dirty on UA's and she marks them fine or inconclusive if she doesnt want her boss BOB to know. Well Bob piss test them all you will have several vacant rooms, several. I even offered to pay to have it sent to a lab or do a retest, she refused. Gave us the boot. A family of five, broke down vehilce, job start date one wk away. Someone needs to check into this place, and the bedbugs are extremely bad, they got mad that my daughter kept getting tore up so they had to keep spraying the room. Guess what cut out the trash, and bums, it would be alot cleaner. Anyone want to buy pills , drugs, food stamps, go to the AZTEC...... They got it all...
