Lehigh Acres Community Services Complaint - Unfriendly Executive

Review by Marine 63 on 2010-09-28
LEHIGH ACRES, FLORIDA -- On 9-28-10 I went to Lehigh Acres Community Services in Florida, Lehigh Community Services, Inc. 1262 Wings Way Suite 206 Lehigh Acres, FL 33936 Phone: 239-369-5818 Fax: 239-368-4242 Email: rae@lehighcommunityservices.com to meet with Mrs. Nicely (Executive Director) because I was referred to her by Mr. Whalen who is the President/CEO of the Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce. The reason for my meeting with Mrs. Nicely was to gather information on what organizations are available who could possibly assist me in launching my organization (not for profit) which provides Teen counseling to At Risk Youth. Now, let me add I did not approach her for financial assistance even though that's what I need to launch my organization. What I wanted from her was more technical support and instead all I got was sarcasm and personal attacks. Now, let me mind you, this is the Executive Director of the organization, let’s forget about people skills and let’s just be downright cannibals and go for the throat. She made a comment to me and she said this, “There are plenty of organizations competing for the same funding”. Now, If I were stupid I wouldn’t have understood crystal clearly that she meant to say, we don’t need any more organizations to compete for the same money I have to compete for therefore making my job more difficult to receive the money from grants that I need to run my organization and I don’t need you dipping into the same pot I have to dip into, so go take your organization somewhere else. Mrs. Nicely abruptly stood up and stated she had work to do specifically grant writing and walked away and didn’t even say have a nice day. Now, on the entrance to her facility they have that big beautiful hand that we all know as the United Way, so go figure, the United Way a National symbol of help and I get my head handed to me in a polite but sarcastic way. Great job Mrs. Nicely your last name definitely does not go with your poor executive people skills, I hope you have a great day. Who do I report this person to? What agencies are there to address this complaint? Any Help! I would appreciate it and thanks. www.WeThePeople-Justice.blogspot.com

"I did not approach her for financial assistance even though that's what I need to launch my organization. " So....you were approaching her for financial assistance? There are other ways to get information from the chamber of commerce.
