501(c)3 Status Revoked for Three narCONons
« on: August 23, 2014, 13:41 »
Some of this is a bit dated, but anyone tracking the money should be aware 501(c)3 status has been revoked for three narCONons in the last few years. Especially when looking at where "grants" have supposedly been flowing since these revocations. Note none of these exemptions has been reinstated since being revoked. Will also post over on WWP.

From the IRS Select Check search info:

Exempt Organizations Select Check
Automatic Revocation of Exemption Information

The federal tax exemption of this organization was automatically revoked for its failure to file a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years. The information listed below for each organization is historical; it is current as of the organization's effective date of automatic revocation. The information is not necessarily current as of today's date. Nor does this automatic revocation necessarily reflect the organization's tax-exempt or non-exempt status. The organization may have applied to the IRS for recognition of exemption and been recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt after its effective date of automatic revocation. To check whether an organization is currently recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt, call Customer Account Services at (877) 829-5500 (toll-free number).

Nice find. Are these locations still open?

I don't know if they've closed, or morphed with a name change into "non-profit" state level status without the federal level exemption.

Joshua Hills was long closed before they lost their tax exempt status.

Narconon Joshua Hills aka Narconon Palm Springs  aka Desert Springs was owned by Danny Pharmer and his wife Tiffany Pharmer aka Guzman, both not scientologists.  I don't recall David being the ED... he called himself on LinkedIN as Program Director at Desert Rehab Centers, which is the other name they went by "Desert Rehab". The facility was located in Desert Palm Springs... they had and used other Pharmer owned houses on the block and behind their block but all these were illegal. Lots of complaints about the place... They were only licensed for 6 patients at the Gibraltar address. They lost their license a few years ago.

I got many complaints about this facility and reported them for license violations. Quite a few refunds were demanded at the end. The place was a mess. Staff doing drugs and having sex with patients. I believe that state and local officials were involved because of complaints and eventually they closed down.
This was the first complaint filed against them that started the ball rolling. There were many agency complaints after this

Thanks for the info Mary. I mainly through these up so anyone tracking the money would be aware they had not filed 990's for at least 3 years before the revocation date. So if any "grants" to/from them showed up elsewhere, it'd be obvious something hinky was going on.

3 down, too many to go.

Thanks. I'm not sure, however, that any of the the Narconons get grants from anywhere but Narconon or Scientology. I never heard of any getting any grants outside the network.

I'm sure this thread will also be good for those who attended Joshua Hills to see. The other two, I don't think they ever opened in the first place.

APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN OF HOPE, INC. is still a corporation and files annual reports.

On the net, all I could find was a begging page claiming to be a 501 C-3, and Facebook:
http://mountainofhope.vpweb.com/?prefix=www
https://www.facebook.com/AppalachianMountainofHope/

No Form-990s filed:
http://www.eri-nonprofit-salaries.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=NPO.Summary&EIN=050617559&BMF=1&Cobrandid=0&Syndicate=No

Aha! Ruling date for charity status: 04/2016. Worth keeping an eye on then.
