An audit from by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs can't find where PCS spent $400,000 and was "unable to come up with answers," the minutes said. Auditors said PCS also misspent as much as $533,000 which it may be forced to pay back.
The minutes suggest the mistakes may have come at the hands of a disorganized board. They said "warning signs existed" but that the board never "received or requested necessary information to take care of 30 million dollar businesses with policies, which are not adhered to."
According to the minutes, an official told the board that funding from the state could be in jeopardy if PCS can't shape up. The executive director then commented that she thinks there could be reform by June.
The non-profit provides assistance to families who need help paying utility bills. It also provides services like transportation, HUD rental assistance, and a food pantry.
Calls for comment from executive director Phyllis Cook were not returned Thursday.
