World Literacy Crusade
« on: January 17, 2013, 18:04 »
I got an email from "Dr" Hanan Islam today inviting me to an event in Cali to celebrate MLK's legacy.  I got to thinking of the program they run.  Here's some info if you havent seen it already:

They are another front group for the Church, a pretty big one too.

More info:  WLC is located in suite B and the American Health and Education Clinic which is run by WLC staff is located in suite C.

As you can see in the link they get state funding for the nn program they run.

Thanks or posting, BMF. The state funding is very concerning.

Rev, as he is lovingly known, is the CEO and founder of the World Literacy Crusade, an organization that was initially founded to rehabilitate gang members. When Reverend Johnson found out about the study technology developed by the late humanitarian, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, he saw it as a tool that could help him in this endeavor. Reverend Johnson recognized that “illiteracy” is the fundamental issue at the base of every social ill that exists in our society, i.e. crime, drug abuse, child abuse, homelessness, hopelessness, etc. Using this study technology to bring about literacy gives to the individual a confidence in his ability to learn and apply what he has learned to life. World Literacy Crusade is helping individuals and groups around the world to change conditions in life.


Reverend Johnson is also the co-founder with his Executive Director, Dr. Hanan Islam, of American Health & Education Clinics. These clinics are certified with and supported by the state of California to administer drug rehabilitation and alternative mental health services to the youth and adult population of Los Angeles County. These clinics are the only clinics certified by the state of California to administer “drug-free” outpatient detox services, specializing in the treatment of teens. This organization also works closely with the courts when any of the youth have entered the judicial system. The courts value and respect the improvements and evaluations given by Dr. Islam and Rev. Johnson. Thus far, all court rulings have aligned with the recommendations of the founders. This organization is growing rapidly. As a result of its success, young people are completing the program and joining staff to help other youth, like them, get through their program. This program is gaining wide acceptance and recognition of its effectiveness in handling youth drug use and addiction.

This is the only 'World Literacy Crusade' in the IRS Exempt Organization database:

EIN: 650737649
NAME: WORLD LITERACY CRUSADE OF FLORIDA
ADDRESS: % THEMA CAMPBELL 6015 NW 7TH AVE MIAMI FL 33127-1109
GEN: 0000 [Not part of Group Exemption]
501(c)3: 03 [Yes]
INDEPENDENT: 3 [Yes]

Any others MAY be non-profit at the state level, but they are not tax exempt as far as the IRS is concerned.

This American Health and Education Clinic seems to be the front and the method for them getting state funding.  Click on the website Mary posted, its fishy to say the least.  Its in the same building as WLC as well.  They may be in different suites per their addresses, but they are connected as if the same facility.  Need to do some more digging and see how much $$ they are taking from the taxpayers of Cali.  Id like to know if the local governing bodies know of this scam as well.  I think Ill ask:)

Weird! You're right, it comes up in the IRS Select Check search, but that EIN is not in the complete Exempt Organization Database that can be downloaded from the IRS.

Interestingly enough, their 2011 Form 990 (Using the EIN you provided, found at: http://www.eri-nonprofit-salaries.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=NPO.Summary&EIN=932227827&Cobrandid=0) shows almost all of the WLC's funding coming from the "American Health and Education Clinic", which doesn't show up in the Select Check or Database.

she set that front company up to get state and local funding for the rehab portion.  California tax dollars hard at work funding the church of scientology.

I just lightly skimmed over the 990 but the section where you have to list all current and former directors only has Rev Alfreddie Johnson.  Apparently he works 0 hours there and gets paid nothing.  No other directors yet on the WLC site "Dr" posts herself as Director.

This is a scam.  No doubt.

ok, one more point.  Their mission per the document is to "effectively train people to study" yet they (WLC) get the majority of their income from a place that is supposed to be delivering rehab. American Health and Education is listed as an outpatient drug rehab so why pay the place next door to train people how to study?

Since they aren't 501(c)3 exempt, I wonder how much of that 'donation' to WLC the AHEC is trying to write off on it's Federal taxes??

That's another reason they set up a for-profit corp, so people cant gain access easily to their returns.  A complaint to the IRS, local and state government agencies who fund this non-sense might do the trick though.  I would imagine they wouldnt think too highly of the mess "Dr" Hanan created in Pinellas county also.  Apparently with the company being in dire straights over there they still managed to pay her consulting firm around $100k.  Criminal.
