"My name is Alena Gavrilenko. Some Abode housing specialists are unhonest and corrupted. Noelia Vazquez, housing specialist for Calworks in San Mateo attempted to push my family to rent through Abode program the terrible unit in the basement approximately 240 sqft for $2400 monthly it is very overprised. The address of the unit is 148 bryne st, Daly City CA. The same units on Craigslist are $1600 monthly. I can guess that the owner is her friend and she wants to give him more governmental money or that she is in conspiracy with him and they have additional $800 monthly. Also this property was not published for rent with fixed price in open sources and Noelia confirmed me in text messages that she knows the owner and that he didn't post the advertisement. I have reported that in State Senate, FBI and police and l hope they are going to fix the problems with her. Please check the Craigslist for 1 bedrooms for $2400 and there is a description of Noelia's unit below. The basement she was trying to rent for us through the Abode program for $2400 was approximately 240 sqft, with no full kitchen, no full bathroom and no full windows, the property is too small even for 1 person. Clients of Abode program, be careful, always check the price if the same units on Craigslist, because they can give you overpriced unit and you will pay your portion of rent making under the table income for Noelia Vazquez."
"I would like to be the first to say I am not happy with ABODE SERVICES and the Linkages program. I applied back in JUNE on the 6th was told I would be able to move in July 1 no later than the 15th. It is now the 4th of September and still nothing. I spoke with Lakeisha who to be honest has been kind of RUDE and to be honest Heart less. I was then told I passed my back round check and that the apartment was Mine and then they say that there waiting on the Hayward Housing Authority to approve the Linkages and I am still getting the run around. My So called Advocate is never answering the phone and when she does she knows nothing.... I end up having to update her. My daughter and I are consistently harassed by the non custodial parent and is now threatening to take my child because we are living on the streets. Ive been a Single parent all this time then im starting to lose it. I went to both Hayward Housing Authority, Oakland Housing authority and Eden Housing and guess what?.... None of them even know about any Linkages Programs and all said they don't Partner with ABODE SERVICE PERIOD. I think I need a LAWYER unhappy then I go by the apartment and my Unit was vacant now its occupied."
"Abode help me for 2 years with my rent which was much appreciated got into a affordable housing I wish they would have helped me after the service was going to end but about really did nothing"
"Do not get housing with these people if you are permanently disabled they put me out on a fake retaliatory 90-day notice alleging a bunch of false stuff and try to put a false order on me because I battled back and forth with them asking for a special accommodation due to my permanent disability they refused and went on extreme power trip and then tried to wrongfully exit me out of their program because they're harassment was so extreme I agreed on paper and mediation to never return back to their program I have watched them screw over many other people it's not worth taking the risk look elsewhere for housing"
