On May 24, 2017, The New York Daily News reported on the operations of Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement Inc., a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Harlem nonprofit CEO stole nearly $1M intended to help house HIV patients ."

  • On May 9, 2018, The New York Daily News published an article titled, "Judge goes easy on CEO who stole $204G from Harlem nonprofit." For more information, please see The New York Daily News article.

The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory.
