Potters house is an evil place, run very much like a cult. I was there from 97 until 2000. I can tell you stories that would disgust you. For more infor or to come up with a gameplan to beat this devil, please email me at murph8225@gmail.com

i also wish to not state my name as to the connections they have. i dont know about the sexual abuse cause manny never physically touched the girls when i was there. hm... where to start. well when i first came there i was court ordered so yes i was a troubled teen. yes, they took me and the girls to church, and i can say that manny and sandy are NOT the ones who changed me at all. it was myself and making the choice to believe in Jesus as my lord, the people at the church are the ones who led me there. it says that you get counseling and whatnot at this program but as far as manny or sandy they did not. as for some of the reviews stating about precautions that you would receive being there if you made even a tiny mistake, i can vouch and say they are out of this world. i remember being outside for hours at a time like from 8 in the morning to i wanna say 8 at night working in the summer heat. i asked to go to the bathroom and got screamed at and punished for it. sandy does use the girls for personal slavery. i was so behind in school because all i did was slave away. all they talk about is the world is ending and if you are not perfect then you wont be in heaven. for this reason, i have serious paranoia and i cannot enjoy life like i used to. i am for 90% of the time depressed. dcf has been called many of times on this house and nothing has been done about it because sandy does scare you into lying to them for fear of not being able to go home because she will lie to the parents and say you did something wrong. yes, she brings you to movies and shopping but i feel its a tactic to make you think for a bit that you are really not in such a bad situation. they are extremely rascist and will bluntly talk about it. if you are so christian than you should know that God created all men, not just white men. i member staying up til 3 in the morning wrapping gifts for only their toddler. if you walk into her cottage, you cannot even go through the halls because its filled to the top with things that she takes for herself that are supposed to be donations for the girls home. onto that note, if the parents are paying for the child to live in this home, and they receive thousands and thousands of dollars in donations, and united way gives them a grant every year why are the girls eating expired donated food from kash and karry(now sweetbay)? i recently applied for food stamps as to i was struggling, and when i was accepted i received no card. my husband called dcf to find out what was going on and they said that i already had one. but funny thing is i never applied for food stamps in my life. they then told me it was located at the address 140 dunty road lake placid fl. i asked my mom if she signed any papers about medicaid or food stamps cuz i know i didnt and she didnt either. i asked if it was ever active at one time and it was back when i lived at this house. so i wanna know why sandy and manny were able to fill three to four fridges up of food to the top and the girls had only donated food never bought?.... so they are playing the state too. but as someone else said they have so many connections that im sure they will never get caught. they said that if the girls left the program early they would end up dying. well out of all the girls that i heard of or knew only 3 out of 100's are a success. think about that. i never finished school because i am one who got pregnant but because i was scared of not living a life as to the world was ending. i could say alot more but what is the use. oh and speaking of therapy... i want to say the only thing sandy considers therapy would be defacing somebodys belongings (i mean egging an exboyfriends close to new mustang) she went so far as to buy two cartons of eggs and bring a few girls dressed in black and drove them to his place of work and sandy was the lookout.

DO NOT SEND YOUR DAUGHTER THERE!!! IF SHE IS THERE GET HER OUT NOW!!! I was a girl there. I was sexually abused before being sent there and a victim of neglect and abuse with a severe eating disorder and horrible depression. They do not provide counseling and when I told sandy I was purging in the bathroom and severely depressed she called me "a pain in the a** and tied me to another girl and made me wear a sign that said I have a big mouth that I cant keep shut". I went so far as to leave in a tampon for three months praying to die of toxic shock syndrome when my depression peaked. I was drowned in that pond out front in the middle of the night, made to eat a bowl of salad with mold all over it because I let a brown piece slip past me when making dinner and moldy salad was my punishment, I was also forced to spend a 3days in 105degree weather without water shoveling horse pop for Sandy's garden because I loved school and books were my escape they would punish me by denying me school and books. They tortured me. I have reported it to child services but the girls in there are forced to lie for fear of repercussions. Your daughters may act changed but they have no choice I cant tell you the torture they will endure if they say a wrong thing. You will be off the phone or gone after the visit and there will be nobody there to protect them. I had bibles thrown at me, was forced to sleep outside when the wheat-er went down to forty degrees and was sleep deprived. Prayed every night for death. I am twenty-five now. A 4.0 GPA college student and still suffer post traumatic stress disorder. Any parent who leaves there child here should be charged with child abuse and forced to pay restitution to the child for as long as they live for the irreversible mental ailments the child will suffer. As for sandy and Manny, I hate you for what you did to me!!!! I dare you to summons me for speaking the truth so I can counter that for child abuse, negligence, child endangerment, and intentional infliction of emotional duress with malice intent, as well as close down the fraud you have going on and save these girls you are currently imprisoning. Parents get your daughters help at the right place. I beg the world to shut this place down!!!
