Little oversight at Philadelphia nonprofit that recieved millions from city under former mayor, whose wife ran nonprofit
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports today that under former mayor John F. Street, Philadelphia directed tens of millions of dollars to a nonprofit organization once run by Street’s wife, Philadelphia Safe and Sound, to coordinate and fund youth anti-violence programs in the city. Safe and Sound’s budget grew from $3 million to $60 million over a few years, some through non-bid contracts, and some of the funds may have exceeded what the city council authorized. The nonprofit provided little oversight of the anti-violence programs even though its administrative costs grew rapidly, according to a report by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare.
