Would you recommend Harmony Thrift Store - Transitional Housing of SWFL?
Dropped off quality bags of items recently. Next to near new shoes and clothes. Six shopping bags full. Woman standing outside says, just drop them here. Not even a Thank You from this woman, Nothing! Her eyes lit up like new years but not even a thank you or a pleasant reply. Never again. I'll do my research first. Hope they treat the "people in need" better.
BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! I was a resident at this place and let me tell you stay away trust me. The head manager TOMMY is a real scum bag. He acts like he's about 15 and he's about 65. He still has somthing to prove i guess and my guess is cause he's probably hung like a light switch. He will try and talk all tuff to you cause he knows he will kick you out and you need a place to stay so you wont say nothing and if you do he will try to call your po or the cops on you. He is a coward and is about as tuff as sheet rock but he will walk around like lou farigno acting all bad like hes tuff and get up in your face and provoke and try to look cool infront of the other residents but in reality this clown is about as worrysome as a cloudy day. On the other had Deb the head in charge (not tommy like he wants you to think) is a very nice woman so not all is bad but this guy who goes around keeping an eye on things for her is a straight coward and will eventualytry getting you jamed up.WIMP TOMMY
I volunteered to work here and they put me to work with out taking down any information about me. Never even asked me my last name and or contact information. First and last day - put right to work in 90(+)degree heat emptying a semi travel filled with donated junk. Dirty, hot, dangerous work with no training or supervision. 6 hours without being told to break. When I did take a break, I went inside the shop seeking air conditioning and was told by Bob, the manager, that the owners did not want the held - AKA volunteers - inside. Oh yeah - was told to work through a thunderstorm. Unless you like being treated like a slave, (no, a slave is treated better) avoided this place like the plague!
The house manager here is really something else.. I am trying really hard to get back on my feet and the house manager robert makes me really uncomfortable here with always threatening and telling other residents that he wishes my po would send me back to prison and just constantly making me feel like im in an unsafe environment..it is so hard trying to readjust back into society and w the stress of finding a job w my background and with this guy always threatening you and always trying to get you kicked out for every little thing u do it makes it so much harder than it already is.. defiantly think twice about going here cause it is definitely not a safe environment with this guy around always threatening to get you locked up or throne out if you even breath wron and hes not a counselor or nothing hes just another resident like me.. beware if you are thinking of having a loved one go there to try to get back ob there feet because this guy will make u so uncomfortable... thanks
