Whats going on at the Rescue Mission? I keep hearing things about the director being on leave or fired or whatever. My family have been volunteering and giving financial support for some years,and we would like to know whats going on. Is anybody in charge at this time? Is there some truth that Bill Dodge is involved in some type sexual acts on the internet? Before we send any money or have my family volunteer there, someone needs to tell the the truth.

I donate to the Mission,I would also like to know what has happened? I thought I was giving to a legitimate charity that helped the poor and needy.

Unless someone has the [email protected] to be specific instead of the usual bullsh!t Topix innuendo, nothing will happen.

I have donated many hours to performing a much needed service to the RM. Several years I have done so, giving very valuble service and more importantly, taking on responsibility,and liability.
The last time. I will not return there again, becuase of the insults, the manner in which I was help accoutable, and employees commenting on how I perform the service. The bad part was them making it personal in a manner that was insulting. What I was doing will now cost them a lot of money for the same service. I've been at it for many years. The last thing I want is a layman telling me HOW to do my job! Then turn around and insult me after giving them many years of money saving Required service's.
I have never had to answer to an emploee. I deal only with those in charge. I will not allow anyone to tell me my service was "shoddy" after taking on full liability for the work. I don't know what happened here. The comm. I sent to REv Dodge never made it to him.
Then, I had another run in with the ACS entity, and the service's they offer. They denied a family member help! Yet have people living there full time. This charity has become a monster, demanding more free service's that is just out and out RUDE! How dare they! My reputation is spotless in this area. So, what ever is happening there is of out of character and after all those years, I see the changes. I will not return there. You do not demand more of a free thing. You cannot insult theose who donate time, service, materials, labor, and take on the liability all on thier own.
I was approached at my home, questioned and held accoutable because I operate out of my home?? Then called names?? WTF is This?? Who are they to demand More?? I gave freely, was insulted, followed home and insulted??

What are some good charities in the area that I could help in the future. Is the Rescue Mission going to stay open?

It's always been all about the money. He;ping the homeless and the less advantaged is just a by product of the real goal to get as much cash so Dodge and his cronies can live a lavish lifestyle on the donations.

The Rescue Mission is not Bill Dodge. The org does great work and serves people.Bill needs to go and the Mission needs to address the issue and not leave it up to speculation. I hope the board looks at what is best for the Mission and the community and fire Bill and address the issue openly.
thank you

The Utica Mission suffered greatly under Dodge. It'll never recover from his damage.

the mission will recover and be better than ever. there has always been great support for the mission from the community. They are not going to let one rotten apple destroy all the good deeds that the utica mission has accomplished for years. they do need to get rid of some of the dead wood and bad attitudes that have crept into management.
Hmmmm
