County cancels contracts with troubled nonprofit

A running investigation by The Fresno (Calif.) Bee found that Fresno County had millions of dollars worth of contracts with Genesis Family Center, a nonprofit social-service agency headed by two sisters who had been convicted of embezzling the agency’s money. Even after the convictions, the agency continued to engage in questionable spending practices, such as giving each sister a $25,000 raise, leasing one of them a BMW and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on their legal defense. Critics argue that the money should have gone to the children served by the agency. As a result of the coverage, the county canceled its contracts with the agency.
