Yea some of us took jobs there to help but unfortunately it's like a big clique there with the staff a popularity contest and to fit in your there for an easy all be it small pay check and free trips in the summer and you look the other way and even contribute to the problems those girls have like giving them cigs, alcohol, and drugs and condoning sex and if you don't you don't fit in bc the higher ups are afraid your gonna bust their little money making scamming scheme....I quit bc eventually the right persons gonna get ahold of what's happening there and the entire staff is going to end up being charged with child endangerment and the people running the show are going to end up with fraud charges for billing for services the girls never receive miles that are never driven and trips that no one but staff and staff family members take so to those of you defending this scam wake up....I'm only like the tenth person on this blog to state the exact same thing from a position that would know now unless it's true don't you think thats a bit odd? Were all saying the same thing because it's true..this place is the biggest scam in creed...if you want to donate to a charity pick another one especially if you are donting money because the right girls will never see it. The girls are just like the staff....the worse you act the better you fit in...the girls there that really try to change their life around not only get shunned they get beat up which never gets reported and eventually they file enough false paperwork to get them sent somewhere else. Plenty of places out there to help girls like this but this isn't one of them....unfortunately most of these girls actually wouldn't be any worse off at their home, some were actually better off, less abused, and exposed to less violence and fewer drugs...don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about either like I say I worked there long enough to see it all from the top to the bottom and while it's sad it's true this place is a money making scam.
. I couldn't help but to laugh when I read this. Because you see, I started working there to get evidence due to accusations that were made by a former employee that had worked there. Long story short and without giving much detail to who I am. I have come to realize that these women actually do care. I went in there hoping to find something. I have been amazed, shocked and in awe with how much they care an love these girls. I have also witnessed many staff come and go. Some Of the women that were let go, called me asking if I would lie and say things that were untrue because they were denied unemployment. I am sorry to say that I once believed everything negative regarding golden girl. Shame on me and shame on you for lying.

I have lived down the street from the GG home for almost 3years now, and I wish they would take the trash somewhere else. There is a good reason as to why these girls are called the "golden hoes" on the streets. They have no drive to better themselves and are given jobs in the area that should go to people who really need them, then they piss away their time at work because they cant get fired because of the damn state. I AM SO SICK of seeing the 'state' provide for people who are scum! The people who run that place are idoits and the girls run all over them, for those that say its hard to care for them, im sure your right, but thats NOT AN EXCUSE to allow what goes on there! If you are not up to the task then take your trash somewhere else! The police and people in this area are sick of it! We dont want the problems Huntington has in our area! and those girls allow and even want to be targets for the drug dealers and street scum! GET THE TRASH OUTTA MY BACKYARD!
The only scum and trash I see is your sorry ass.

Dont be so blind that you just accept any BS you hear either for or against this or other places - What have I done? Im part of an investigative team that monitors complaints on state paid facilities - Is GG perfect - not by a long shot - do they have staff issues (allowing the girls to smoke,drink,etc) Yes they do - and they have also been monitored for not providing services billed for. As a previous response states Look around - they are not perfect - is anyone? Before your so quick to judge the former employee, some of us would choose to leave rather than participate in some of the behavior that goes on these facilities. Unfortunately it takes a lot of time to identify,investigate and make changes to these places.
I am sure they have pervs messing with the girls. Typical state employee behavior.
