A wim? People get greedy and do stupid things to obtain more and more money. It clearly seems Wilma used her power and ordered the two employees (which also did wrong) to fraudulently bill over $700,000. PLAIN N SIMPLE they got caught and now they must do their time even though she helped people in trouble and opened her heart, thats why she loved them because the more individuals she had the more she'd be able to bill . It was only for her own financial gain...Really, you think she was in it to help others....Hell no!!!! So now she has to suffer the consequences for what she did, now only if she was smart and saved those $700,000 she ripped off she could of bailed herself out!!!

I don't know the circumstances of the case, but we
should not be too quick to jugde. I know this lady and believe her to be a woman of integrity.
Perhaps she had a laspe in judgement and some bad
decisions, and I trust that this is what happened.
What good would a jail sentence do? We see from past criminals that they are not rehablitated. If
she is found quilty, she should make restitution and you can't do that locked up. She is not a threat to society. Coomunity service would be a good way to start, after all that was her original
endeavor (to help people). She can now earned the
money she has already been paid. I pray for her and the others and their families and that God will work it out.

She is a crook and got caught with her hands in the cookie jar. She hides behind the veil of respectability, just like that other crook Vera Robles Dewitt. They both are crooks and should be in jail and deported.

I just read a great article about fundraising for non profits. Maybe Wilma Wilson should have read this :

Finally this gets out and hopefully money goes to the people that really need the funding and not to gold diggers

well I was a client at her shelter and I love mrs Wilson but the truth is the program was not ran well and the people that came to her for help were not given the help that they needed.
When women go to shelters because they are being abused they need a whole lot of help and when the people who are supposed to be helping you are really just taking advantage of you and treating you like your scum then most of these women will end up right back in these abusive relationships they went to shelter to escape from.
I pray for Mrs Wilson but mostly I pray for all the women and children that suffered because of her actions
