A friend of mine was a "guest" of the Cherry Street Mission recently. The stories he had to tell were horrifying. He told me of drunken and drug-induced fights there that result in the police being summoned many times every day. Fire Rescue and ambulances are also a common sight there. After he told me of these things I decided to do a little investigating of my own. There are currently 39 registered sex offenders staying there. Their crimes involve the unspeakable-children molested,raped and sodomized. There is also an untold number of fugitives from the law who are hiding out there. They are using aliases in some cases but in others they are not. The staff of Cherry Street Mission either does not check these men's background or they simply do not care. He told me of groups of children who are brought to Cherry Street Mission on tours of the facility. The adults with them are either unaware of what they are walking the young ones into or they are willing to jeopardize the children's safety. As a donor to the Cherry Street Mission I am appalled as to what I have been donating my resources to. There is no way that I will ever donate to CSM again. I urge anyone else who has donated or considering donating to CSM PLEASE DON'T DO IT. If you want to voice your concerns to CSM contact CSM CEO Rev. Dan Rogers at: 419-242-5141 Ext.231 or Men's Ministry case management Ext. 239.created by Harley on Mar 06, 2009 at 12:08:03 pm
