Faith-Based Incorporations (HHS grantees) often Don’t Stand Up under Scrutiny

leave a comment »


The Republicans were up in arms again, declaring (hypocritically) that the best way out of poverty was a job, while diverting money into starting new professions for (cronies), who then buy up real estate and practice franchise marriage/fatherhood/parenting educational marketing on the poor.  The profits are going, apparently, into whoever was in on this early enough to have a trademarked curriculum (downloadable of course) AND close connections to Washington, D.C. and the Department of HHS.   The Democrats bought into this just as heavily and in my opinion are no better.

Not all “faith-based” groups actually have the word “faith-based” in their corporations, but it’s probably a good call that they are aware of that 2001 Executive Order by the POTUS with the agenda of helping streamline grants to “faith-based” organizations.

Pray tell, what have  “COMPASSION CAPITAL FUND (CCF) TARGETED CAPACITY GRANTS BUILT — AFTER THE FAITH-BASED CORPORATIONS GOT THE THESE FUNDS?

AND WHY CAN’T THESE “SPECIAL INTEREST ORGANIZATIONS” (many of them) STAY INCORPORATED AFTER THEY GOT THE GOODS?  THE GRANTS ARE NEW, DISCRETIONARY, AND “DEMONSTRATION.”  I’VE BEEN LOOKING AT WHAT THEY DEMONSTRATED, AND LEARNED THAT, AS WITH THE THEOLOGY, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO “TAKE IT ON FAITH,” THAT THE PUBLIC INVESTMENT WAS AN HONEST ONE.

Category of Federal Domestic Assistance 93009

ANYHOW — I just now (again) looked up HHS grants to a certain series, the “90IJ” series, which are Federal “CFDA” (Category of Federal Domestic Assistance) 93009, “Compassion Capital.”  I also plugged in the word “faith” under Grantee name, chose a few fields, and here are 14 of them; it’s higher than “11” because there is more than one entry for a few of them.  I notice one is a welfare department.  How can a government grantee called “faith-based” be a welfare department?

Below this, I looked at a single group in Maryland.  It was chosen at random, however, as I saw within 10 minutes that (1) as soon as it got its second grant, it stopped filing for corporate status as a nonprofit (and I haven’t even checked the “Nonprofit” part yet…) and that the person listed on the corporation was a County Commissioner.  This is how government works in the US of A….

As such, they can keep their lectures about work ethics, theories about what causes poverty and TANF to themselves, and give me back all the tax money I spent over the years, so far as I’m concerned.  Or, cut me in on some of the asset acquisitions & public real estate paid for with missing money!

Again, I’m speaking as a mother who sought government intervention to keep my family alive via a domestic violence restraining order with kickout, and when I say “family” like many, I include Dad, too.  I then went back to work, and found myself repeatedly OUT of work through the removal of same restraining order (the DV agency just did triage, and didn’t see fit to give its clients a road map of the family law system.  So I’m writing one here (and elsewhere!).

FYI (because otherwise the chart is too wide), ALL of these were “Demonstration” “Discretionary” and “NEW” grants.  I searched “Grant Number  “90IJ” (only) and typed the word “faith” into “Grantee Institution.”  That’s all. If I took out the word “faith” (for in the grantee institution name) there would be 39 total, including at least one with the word “abstinence” in the name.

Based on a sampling of several of these (LOTS of lookups), I’d say that statistically speaking, the chance that the word “faith” in these CCF grants (especially if it’s “faith-based” in the name) means a higher probability that the organization doesn’t stay incorporated, and might be a scam.

All discretionary, all demonstration.  Notice how all the amounts are fairly small.  Some will go on to receive much nicer amounts (over $1 million), others will be content with their $50K or $99K and then evaporate.  Do the math — how often does this happen, really?  See below for another chart minus the word “faith” in the same grant series…

Some of these may be legitimate. Others need maybe a little more “compassion” from me, after I have finished looking at their “Compassion Capital” grants, then their Corporate status records, then — in general, begun to wonder, seriously — why HHS keeps giving Compassion Capital Grants (which are like free capital – something most of us don’t get easily) — to Corporations that don’t stay incorporated?  And how many of the CEO’s are already employed in local government?  How many are also related to prior HUD grants or Community Development Block Grants (CDBG)?

Far be it from ME to say “kickback” — but I feel it’s a reasonable question to say, “Whassup?”  

How hard is it to file an annual tax return, and why do so many of these grantees “forget” to — like this one?   Maryland Dept of Assessments and Taxation says it was formed in 2004 and is now status “Forfeited”

Are these people incorporating and then suddenly losing their incorporating just well-meaning, low-income, church folk who don’t understand business?  I don’t know, but here’s William R.

I suppose they are all doing great things for the community.  In looking up (naturally) Vita T. Pickrum, I found minutes of a Commissioners Meeting (Mr. Pickrum, presiding) and that she represents (under a CCA they are trying to raise money for, the “Kent Family Center.”
January 17, 2006 TThe Honorable Board of County Commissioners met today with the following present: Roy W. Crow, Scott D. Livie, with William W. Pickrum presiding.
  • Susanne Hayman, County Administrator, was also in attendance.
  • Minutes of the previous meeting were approved.
  • W. Roger Williams, Treasurer, reported a balance of $ 7,915,936.
  • Commissioner Pickrum requested a moment of silence to remember the men and women in uniform around the world who have died in defense of the United States’ freedom and America’s way of life.

It appears here that they are creating another governmental unit (“Authority”) — see CAFR material for these) — and trying to do good things for boys, girls, and the community in the form of a building whose construction costs increased rapidly.  I’m not sure who is the “Kent Family Center,” but FYI, here it is:

COMMUNITY CENTER AUTHORITY (CCA)
An organization meeting was held for the members of the CCA. In attendance were Dr. Bonnie C. Ward (representing the Board of Education), Jeffrey Troester (representing Parks and Recreation), Dawn Robinson (representing Chester River Health Care System), Jill Bramble (community representative), Edward Athey (representing Parks and Recreation Advisory Board), Anne Livie (representing Local Management Board), Vita T. Pickrum (representing Kent Family Center), and John Nunn (community representative). Members Leon Frison (Local Management Board) and Joe Holt (Washington College) were unable to attend.

Commissioner [William] Pickrum welcomed the initial CCA board members, stating that the movement to create a Community Center began approximately six or seven years ago. This Board adopted legislation in 2005 to create a CCA which was made effective on July 22, 2005. For information purposes, he advised that the State of Maryland granted a $500,000 bond bill to cover the cost of a community center and that the County has committed $1 million. The first order of business for this body will be the construction of a buildingEven with the $1.5 million commitment, it was noted that construction costs have risen substantially in the past two years. Commissioner Pickrum urged the group to visit community centers in the area, such as the Boy Scout/Big Brother/Big Sister facility at Seaford, Delaware. Anne Livie stated that the CCA board should review the plan created by the architect previously hired. Dr. Ward stated that the Board of Education has approval to donate sixteen acres of land for the Community Center based on the original proposal that included a pool, basketball courts, etc. Commissioner Pickrum stated that as to funding, the Commissioners are open to any suggestions. In response to Mrs. Livie’s question, the Commissioners advised they would be agreeable to the CCA’s soliciting for private donations. Mrs. Bramble suggested that membership of the CCA be expanded to include more citizen representation to assist with the fundraising. The group was encouraged to submit recommendations and to establish their own meeting schedule. Mrs. Livie advised that there is $46,000 available in the FY06 LMB {{local management board?}} budget for this project and suggested that it be used for administrative support.

The Commissioners thanked the group for their willingness to serve on the CCA.

Here is the LMB — address, court house annex:

I picked one of the smaller examples (all are interesting); here’s the ruling on this authority, which is still in operation (for funding said community Center) with Vita T. Pickrum on the Board.  Board members are uncompensated, except for expenses incurred.

The Community Center Authority may join or cooperate with the federal government, the State of Maryland, Kent County, any municipality, or any other governmental agency, individual, corporation, not-for-profit organization or citizen group in fulfilling its duties and responsibilities under this chapter.

>>>>this shows a local government unit (County, presumably — Kent County) setting up an “authority” — and as such this Authority’s money has to show up on a CAFR (Comprehensive Audited Financial Report) somewhere — either under the county, or under its own.

In an ideal world, I  (or someone from Maryland….) would finish the follow up on the $99,000 received from HHS by “Faith, Strength & Power,” and see who reported on how that money was spent, and why any public servant (or family member of the same who then sits on a government authority) should be allowed to form corporations and nonprofits primarily (or ONLY) to get an HHS grant, and then let it be dissolved immediately (in this case it does seem to be almost immediately) after getting said grants.  HHS if FULL of this!!!!

…..

TEACHING POINTS:

If I remove the word “Faith” from the institution’s title (as a select), limit it to the above years only (2005-06-07) there are 861 results (in one search; without the year, the results were 1100++, so most grants WERE during this timespan.  Interesting, wasn’t 2008 when the economy tanked?).  That’s too much to handle, so I selected most of the above states to limit it some more.

I selected ONLY:
Arkansas // California // Colorado … Florida // Iowa // Kansas … Maryland // Ohio Oklahoma..Texas  (years 2005; Grant series 90ILJ — all results were CFDA 93009 — but I omitted that column for margins)

And got these results (you can try yourself).  Actually, there were 104 for 2005 only.  I know several of them already, and isn’t it interesting how many have no DUNS# at all?

Also (regarding data entry) notice that while ALL are the same CFDA# — there is no consistency in the punctuation under the award title column, nor could a person (using this database) SEARCH on the Award Title (having selected 93009 Compassion Capital) to easily find out — which were Youth, which were MARRIAGE, which were RURAL.   Look carefully — is it /YOUTH, – YOUTH, or (YOUTH)??

((the obvious question is, why isn’t it set up to check an option:   Youth, Marriage, Rural, Marriage — and have it put in automatically (boilerplate).  What’s more, what’s the point of subdividing grants into Youth, Marriage, Rural (and healthy marriage) if we, the public, cannot sort on that subdivision (accessibly) and take a look at the scope?  And this is only within on “90IJ” grant series.

As a lowly secretary/data entry clerk, I myself would know better.  Are we, the public, simply not supposed to really take this database seriously?  It’s certainly not set up anything close to what, for example, someone who could afford “FEDMINE” would expect.  I have spent too much time on this databse NOT to understand that most of it is for show.   I am hardly an expert in databases (though have set up a few for offices in my day)….

For the ONE which was CCF “Healthy Marriage” the word “Capital” is even mis-spelled  (Captial).  (see red).  That’s interesting to me, because this particular one (ANTHEM being the acronym) is a big one in Texas… Am I supposed to believe it’s an accident?  How many flubs of spelling should be expected in this field (I’ve found “responsible fatherhood, Faterhood, you name it….).

NEXT STEPS — one can then follow up on any of these organizations in the usual manner and see whether the went on to get millions — or dissolved to take the $50,000 and reincorporate under some other chameleon-like similar organization.

An example or two below:  Relationship Research Foundation (Wylie) and Dennis Stoica’s group, of course.  Some may already be blogged herein…

WHY NOT CALL IT WHAT IT IS — A FATHERHOOD FRONT GROUP? & curriculum distributer/franchise?  this organization also appears to be simply one woman anyhow…..
PLEASE NOTE:  IT STARTS WITH A NICE LITTLE (SOMETIMES NOT SO LITTLE) $50K GRANT (probably enough to support two entire Needy Families in some areas, for a year — adequately) and the next thing you know, it’s up & running and getting $250K grants.  For years. . . . .
This organization is simply (when you click on the website) a woman (“Dr. M.P.”) running the basic curriula (seminars) common to marriage grantees, out of newport beach, and getting to write it off as a nonprofit; probably ones she got from attending a SMARTMARRIAGES conference somewhere.
  WELL, WELL WELL, Dennis Stoica is stepping down:

President of California’s Largest Marriage Education Organization Steps Down

on September 14, 2012 · Leave a Comment
hrc_dennis_stoica_235((A little oversight here?  Isn’t there a photo of a woman as well?  The article doesn’t even mention her name!!))

(oh — far below, it’s Patty Howell…))

Dennis Stoica, the founder of Healthy Relationships California, has resigned as president of the nationally recognized non-profit organization, formerly known as California Healthy Marriages Coalition (CHMC).  “After ten years of working to improve the health of couples, families and relationships throughout California by offering Relationship and Marriage Education classes, the time has come for me to make a change,” says Stoica. Over the last decade, Dennis Stoica’s vision and leadership resulted in numerous accomplishments including: […] Read more 

If you read, most of his fantastic accomplishments (for which he takes a lot of credit) have a very, very (very, very very very) close connection to his (very close connection) with the United States Department of HHS and were set up with grants.

Over the last decade, Dennis Stoica’s vision and leadership resulted in numerous accomplishments including:

  • Establishment of the Orange County Marriage Resource Center and the nation’s first online clearinghouse of Relationship and Marriage Education classes;
  • Launching CHMC which received more than $12 million in grants for Relationship and Marriage Education (RME) classes over six years;
  • Conducting and releasing the findings from a robust study on The State of California’s Unions: Marriage and Divorce in the Golden State;
  • Administering more than $5 million to 30 non-profit and community organizations serving diverse populations in California with RME classes conducted in several languages;
  • Receiving the coveted Smart Marriages Impact Award;
  • Overseeing the rebranding of CHMC to Healthy Relationships California (HRC), which received a three-year, $7.5 million grant for RME classes to low income and underserved populations;
  • Speaking at a recent UN conference on “Family Policy in Modern Western Society” in Geneva, Switzerland;
  • Additionally, Stoica was prominent in the national efforts to secure $150 million per year in funding from the Obama Administration for Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood programs.
SO REALLY, HE SHOULD THANK THE PUBLIC (WHOSE TAXES CONTRIBUTED TO THE LARGESSE) and poor people (FROM WHOSE DINNER TABLES SOME OF THIS MONEY CAME TO START WITH, AFTER TANF HELPED ENABLE SUCH THINGS).  (I blogged these groups earlier, and some of their corporate transformational names etc.) (and have very little respect for the whole operation, in case you can’t guess…

Prerequisite Information
Notice the increase of assets & revenues for a few years, then apparently decreased.   the “RRF” are simple 2-page forms showing if they got gov’t funding, and if so, from whom.  This says (honestly), from HHS 93.086 (which is marriage/fatherhood funding).
In the 2009 RRF (you’ll have to reload from the top to view) it clearly says most of the funding was from HHS, plus $50K from “California Healthy Marriages Coalition,” in other words, out of $670,305 revenues, $613,885 was in federal awards.  In other words, the PUBLIC is sustaining this corporation which essentially runs classes (fairly religious ones) for the US Government.
TAGGS search “healthy marriage” shows several, including two in Northern CA (Sacrament0) but not this one further south:  Click on the Sacramento one to see the nearly $4 million of funding, starting with $50K Compassion Capital;
then rapidly escalates to $550K the NEXT YEAR — and in 2011, another grant of nearly $800K ….  Series FE (fatherhood Education, most likely) and then “FM”)  .  You give me $50K, then $550K, and I could fly around the world and give talks, too… And dispense federal largesse to other cult members….

Corporation records show that around 2004/2006 (when these grants were being nicely publicized; a lot of groups were getting the concept that “healthy relationship” corporations were good ideas to form:
Entity Number Date Filed Status Entity Name Agent for Service of Process
C3073670 01/16/2008 SUSPENDED CALIFORNIA CENTER FOR HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS, INC. LEGALZOOM.COM, INC.
C2746528 05/13/2005 ACTIVE HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS CALIFORNIA PATTY HOWELL
C2790720 06/09/2006 ACTIVE OAKLAND BERKELEY INITIATIVE FOR HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS ** RESIGNED ON 06/20/2011
C2494811 01/06/2003 DISSOLVED THE CENTER FOR HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS, INC. TAMARA ILICH

(I believe the one in red, Patty Howell registration agent, is the former CHMC (Leucadia base).

If one takes the Corporate Entity numbers over to the California Corporations Search, one can see how many kept on filing, and possibly see some articles of incorporation or a few tax returns.  )
C2884898    C2746528
NOT TO BRING UP THE OBVIOUS — BUT WHO’S GOING TO KEEP TRACK OF THESE GROUPS?
SOMEONE ELSE?
MOTHERS LIKE ME WHO’VE ALREADY BEEN ALL BUT BANKRUPTED BY THE COURT SYSTEMS ETC.?
the HHS ITSELF?  is the OIG (Office of Inspector General) GOING TO CARE ENOUGH TO TRACK THIS?
suppose the OIG DID track it — does this office have teeth enough to enforce anything?
(the answer is, NO).
I JUST WANT TO ASSURE US THAT THE “HEALTHY MARRIAGE MOVEMENT” WAS SOLD AS HELPING PEOPLE OUT OF POVERTY, BUT IN OUTCOME APPEARS TO BE KEEPING THEM IN IT.  IT IS ECONOMICALLY UNSOUND.  BUT, HEY — JUST TAKE IT ON FAITH, EVERYONE INVOLVED MEANT WELL, THEREFORE, WE (THE PUBLIC) SHOULD CONTINUE GIVING THEM A (BIG) SLICE OF GRANTS (YEARLY) TO KEEP UP THE INFRASTRUCTURE AND PRACTICE OF building capacity for what is, basically, a very bad idea.
This economic reality (like I’ve called it, a fire hydrant with the top off) is now part of the local landscape throughout the country.  Is that “OK” with everyone?  I would like to know, because I’m still owed thousands in child support arrears (which is hard to collect, and on my part, still dangerous), after the courts had their fun with my kids, and helped eliminate not one but both parents in their lives.  because we all know, they’d be worse off with their mothers if those mothers weren’t in close relationship with the fathers (even when that meant, in close regular contact with abusers of one sort or another).
Again, I’m not very good with the visuals (graphics) — no Technical Assistance Grants coming this way to report on the TA grants of others — but anyone who can get a basic mental concept of — who’s minding the shop? — should realize immediately, this is a problem, not a solution.   Just because a grant series was started up and has some momentum, doesn’t mean that Congress should reauthorize it every year!  it totally changes the power balance away from individual rights and protections towards the collective “problem-solving” business enterprise — which in my opinion is now the problem itself.
Contact me by comments here for more, or particular leads.  Another issue is, someone ought to scrutinize the TAGGS.hhs.gov database better — it’s an insult to the average data entry clerk, or administrator in both design, administration, proofreading, and data entry consistency — for example, typing in a Title into the “Principal Investigator” field, failing to have last name/first name, and the inability of the user to sort and select on enough fields to run meaningful reports.  Moreover, the data in here doesn’t match corresponding data on USASpending.gov (a more complex database) given the same sort and select.  How about a Compassion Capital Fund to fixing TAGGS.hhs.gov, so it’s actually relevant and accurate, flexible and actually useful for an average citizen to check some of the data on the think tanks and policy institutes?
