It's a travesty what our mental health agencies have become. This a prime example of how agencies cheat the mentally ill, cheat the government, and get away with it. This agency allegedly helps the mentally impaired get jobs. Yeah right! Friendship House doesn't care about your loved one. Friendship House cares about the checks that they get from the state. They hire clients out like a temp agency, paying them less than minimum wage, then make them pay for transportation and lunch. It's exploitation. The clients don't understand that they can close their own cases, because they no longer require anymore services. And Friendship House won't tell them this either! Our tax dollars are going toward a job coach for someone who has been successfully employed for more than 13 years in the same position! It's outrageous! Friendship House lies to potential clients, telling them they will get training and post-highschool education. The clients who are referred to Friendship House often don't qualify for state-funded training because they have to score at least 65 on state tests to be eligible. But Friendship House doesn't tell them this. The state only pays Friendship House for job coaching, not training. So they lie to clients and their families all the time. They have been audited at least four times that I know about, and have received repeat warnings, yet they're still in business.

Very poor job coaching staff. There are limited services for people with disabilities, but a lot of lying and exaggerration about the services offered. The day program is even worse. RE: the TE program- there's a reason why FH is the only
