I am reading this late but I have first hand experience with SouthEast Works.I will statew that the director before Pam was not much better,she was more concern about makeing money to purchase group homes for the agency.Had no concern for the clients that the agency serve. The directors of the orgazation should of investaged more with Pam and they were at fault.Their are many problems at South East,but the new director is working very hard to resolve the problems within the orgazation.The problem with all Human Service Agency if they operate group homes,the agencies attempt to divorce the parents or caregiver from the resident and I have been fighting that issue and many more for many years. The agencies try to control the resident life.

I totally agree Southeasts last director was concerned with buying group homes as they generate a large portion of income reimbursement from state for the volume of programs they can bill for. Without residential Southeast would not survive.Did the last director care about the clients? no they were just dollars and cents. The board of directors did totally foul-up with the hiring of Ms Hayes. Why would you hire(board at Southeast)someone who requested you not contact there last employer after being there many years . Mr Stachura the acting director before Mr Foel was appointed as director told me this.It is sad that no one was concerned at Southeast about that fact. Who knows what Ms Hayes might have done at Southeast she should never have been hired. These agencies number one concern is cash flow and at Southeast that river flows mainly from the residential program look at the facts you will find this to be true. All agencies care about is the money flowing. These agencies would prefer little or no involvement by parents or caregivers I agree once a client moves into a group home it seems they are just property of that agency that is not right at all.

I know Southeast wants to forget about the past and what happened in 2012 the employee dismissals etc etc. Hopefully Mr foel can turn things around at least he comes with verifiable credentials. I heard good things about him.

It's been a little while since my exodus from Southeast works my only regret was working there as long as I did and working for the supervisors I did

JS is still running SEW from her county job. She did everything she could to make herself look good after she left. She no longer has an interest there, let's see how much she shows up.

hopefully Tim will do well. 2012 What bunch of F*** Ups the board of directors hiring Hayes. Isn't it funny Tim Pfoel was a homegrown product nothing to hide legitimate work history etc that is the type of person that should have been selected from day one. Instead Hayes. Just think without the select individuals looking out for Southeast just imagine what could have happened. Instead Tim's at the helm someone who's climbed the ladder legitimately. You might want to thank those who exposed Hayes and the Board of directors at Southeast for what they really are/where.

Sue M was let go because she was the CFO in charge of the finances. Why do you think Hayes let her go. Hayes wanted full access to the finances so Sue M had to go. Sue M. was a great loss someone who knew this field inside and out. Sue M was someone who was an independent thinker Pam didn't like that so Pam yells "Collect up your shit Your dismissed" pretty sad a woman Sue M. with a great mind for this field. Your loss Southeast. It's funny how nobody saw through Pams tales when she was at Southeast what a shit merchant.

I helped move the process getting at the truth about Ms Hayes. I was glad to do it as nobody else had the courage too. I put my money where my mouth is.

I notified the board members via e-mail because I knew she was a snake. The true hero was Richard perry who really did expose her AND himself! Where did it get him? They made him go away? They should have put a medal on the guy.

Thanks Been there post Oct 8th. I would have only liked to have left SEW on my own terms. I never really belonged there anyway. I really thought Ken Levan was a stand-up guy that proved not to be true. As for Lani Churley what can be said from me nothing positive. I will take partial credit for helping pave the way for Tim Phoel being the new E.D.
