The non-profit Washington DC General Family Shelter is about to experience some changes.
In February, Councilmember Tommy Wells toured the facility and saw mold and ceiling damage in the stairwells and heard complaints about plumbing problems, and concerns over cleanliness.
It’s either going to close, or possibly be under new management. Current management allowed an assortment of allegations and mismanagement, including mold. In a June assessment, either the mold and peeling paint were not there, or the Department of Human Services missed them in their assessment. The current management company will most likely be ousted.
Mold can have devastating health effects and surely could have been a factor in the deaths of the two infants there in the past two years. (Infants are particularly susceptible to severe reactions to mold.)
If this is your situation too, and you’re in California, you might want to give us a call and see about getting an assessment from Byebyemold.
