Re: “Step up, Colorado Springs

I know what the RAP program says they do for the homeless, but the truth is that they continuously make promises to our most disadvantaged people and then do not follow through. I think that this program is one of the most mismanaged non-profits-actually it does not even have 501c-3 status, but it operates under the Pikes Peak Partnership umbrella. The advocates are under paid and largely untrained. They have had some serious issues with pairing advocates and clients together ie..relapses, attempted break ins for prescription drugs (the advocate had access to a client's personal prescription info through files), and even an unfortunate pregnancy when an advocate took advantage of a mentally ill and vulnerable woman. I personally believe that a class action lawsuit should be filed against this agency. They have done more harm than good for the homeless unless you believe that making homeless people wait for hours before they are seen while drinking non-stop coffee and watching tv constitutes help. Peak Vista Homeless Clinic disinvited the RAP program from sharing space with them because of the way the program is mismanaged. Also, making every one sign in whether they get help or not to fake numbers for reporting agencies to make them selves look good is just plain dishonest. I say-good riddance to RAP.
