Sadness about DVI
It has greatly saddened me that the once mighty Daytop Village has become a pit of incompetence and corruption. Daytop was a place where the staff genuinely cared and worked based on their belief in the mission. Nowadays, what motivates most staff members is how to do the very least and go home. Some are truly committed; however, their morale is so low its only a matter of time before we leave.
Senior management like Charlie Devlin, Msgr O'Brien, Frank Lanza, Louise Noll, Karen Szurek, Cheryl Nazario are all gone, replaced by self absorbed, ncompetent, mean spirited people from a place called Palladia (which is nothing buy a glorified shelter that was poorly ran and is under Medicaid investigation for fraud).
If Daytop is ever to survive, it needs to bring in competent, hard working people who believe in its mission. Not self serving unqualified, self absorbed people like the newly unqualified VP of Outpatient service who does not even have a CASAC T.
