The state concluded that the 40-year-old nonprofit has financial management problems, needs organizational reform and has no feasible plan to improve these issues. ...
San Francisco officials also raised concerns about the nonprofit this year. In August, mayor's office director Dwayne Jones sent a letter to the executive director, Nathaniel Mason, and board chairwoman, Hazel King, informing them the city was undertaking a management audit and other oversight measures. The letter details a litany of problems, including losing a child on a field trip and leaving a child locked in a facility after staff members closed for the night. Additionally, as in 1998, the nonprofit has not enrolled enough children in its child development programs, putting funding for the group's other city programs at risk.Apparently they lost a state preschool contract 10 years ago because of consistently underearning their contract and not communicating with parents, and they haven't learned their lessons.
