Bill's phone extension has now been deactivated. That is the first verifiable proof that I have seen so far.

I called his extension 3 or 4 days ago and it worked fine. I call it now and I get a message that says it is an invalid extension. The other extensions seem to be working fine.

I also know for a FACT that staff was saying that Bill was on vacation a few weeks ago.

I do not know if all of the above posts are true or false, but it appears that something may be going on since his phone extension has been deactivated in the past few days.

you need to ask the board why this was able to go on for so long. They were told on more than one occasion by credible people about Dodge, but for some reason, turned a blind eye. Only they can tell you their reason.

Staff have sex with each other right in the mission. Salaried management aware and turns their head because the cant find other staff to replace them . Now with Dodge gone, it's easier then ever

RESCUE MISSION BOARD OF DIRECTORS
I arrived in Utica 2006 and am a graduate of the Parker House half way house. The only thing I can say today is I am a Christian. And as such dont actually care if someone stole from the mission. I believe today that God oversees all and that He owns EVERYTHING! So if he stole from God he will be dealt with. If the authorities here believe he has and convict him of a crime he will pay for that too. I continue to pray for the survival of the Rescue Mission. An organization that reaches people from all walks of life. I dont know a single person today that hasn't made mistakes. So my Lord and Savior teaches me daily to pray for those that do. Because I have made many. If anyone is without sin let him cast the first stone. My name is Eddie Cirilo

And you sir, are the problem. Only have negative things to say. Easier to speak down to others than lift someone up. Your true nature is shown, you won't amount to much in life by talking bad about others. Just some correction I'm giving to you. Take it or leave it.

You, sir, are in denial. The truth is the truth. The facts are the facts. Deal with it. Get you head out of the sand.

Agreed! The facts are the facts. And the fact I'm trying to point to is that the mission has seen many great things and done many great things to allow people to change mistakes they have made in the past. Which we all have done. And if one person is alleged to have made a BIG mistake, then that person will be held accountable, but we cannot let it damper the good things that come from the mission.

There are many accusations listed here, that I agree with, but where is the proof so the newspapers can pursue the story? The Board is not talking. Does anyone know the website where he posted pictures? Does anyone have anything concrete about the amount that he stole? Does anyone know who to talk to that will reveal what is happening?

It is my understanding that Bill Dodge has retained a lawyer for the purpose of getting a financial settlement and with no publicity or record in his dismissal from the Rescue Mission.I certainly hope that the board has no intent of engaging in this extortion.You should be in the process of having liens put on his bank accounts and house,contacting a independent accounting firm to scrutinize all of his expenditures for the last few years.Be prepared to go to court, and get all the news media involved in this case. What he wants is to be able walk away richer and have no public record of his behavior so he can prey on some other organization in the future.Now is the time for the Board of Directors to step up to the plate and put the Mission ahead of your personal egos and goals.

The fact is that he entire management team at RM is inappropriate and fraudulent from personnel director to Enriched Living to ACC. they are all incompetent, raise their hands to the cross and operate I un Christian ways, borderline evil. Working there was toxic. ACC is being run into the ground and they push radical Christianity. They hide behind the cross, hire only from Redeemer Church etc . It was only a matter of time before the ship and its sick crew sank. There are some good people at ES however they donít run the show. Itís a toxic environment to work. If OASAS and OC really knew the billing games and misuse of funds going on there, whew, it would get criminal. I was on the inside, I know. They need wholesale change and lots of prayer for any significant fundraising to take place. BTW where is the OD investigative and unbiased reporting on all this???
