During our analysis of LCG Community Services’ 12/2016 Form 990, the document revealed the following:

The organization paid $2,720,555 to a for-profit firm owned by the nonprofit's CEO and Executive Director.

We find such practices atypical when compared to how other charities operate and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.

  • On April 15, 2018, The New York Daily News published an article titled, "Twin brothers get rich sheltering homeless in disgusting apartments." For more information, please see The New York Daily News article.

The nature of the atypical financial reporting issues identified are such that Charity Navigator has issued this CN Advisory to provide donors with information that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
