Anybody know the details on Hope For Humanity Project? Hope Klothing Kubbard? Karen Schnopp? While this "project" may sound good, there are LOTS of red flags. Appears to be some sort of scam. Beware!

I heard DRG Foundation out of Fairmont is also a huge scam! And they are trying to get citizens of Morgantown directly involved in volunteering now too! Seems more and more organizations such as these are up to NO GOOD! SAD ):

I would like to know what you know. I am not sure if there is a way to speak to you privately like email or something. She promised my family stuff and never came through.

I am right there with all of you. Our family was shown a home and had even walked our children through it. We were also told that "Hope For Humanity" would provide furniture such as beds, table, couch, etc. I have been contacted by many people about this being a scam. Karen will now no longer answer any of my calls, text messages or emails. I feel sick and heartbroken. We had to tell our children that we wanted to fix up our old home to design it the way we wanted.(So now I feel I have to lie to my children to cover up for her wrong).

karen lied to us all, from what i have been told she has always been a fraud. she lies about her health, as well as family members (her husband doesn't have cancer) just for attention. this isn't the first scam she has been behind. she has a special place in hell waiting for her. u don't play with people's lives and not get punished.

Jay... Have you had specific dealings with her... Can you elaborate more? There are many people that have been hurt by this program...and her. Wondering what legal action could be or has been taken? If you talk to her directly she says but none of this is a scam that the people with the money have withdrawn their money but then other people say that they have not gotten anything from any of her promises. Prison or psych ward?

So sorry to hear how you and your husband were duped. These people do this because they can! Because they are either mentally ill or criminals!!! I couldn't find any info on the site you left. There are people who want to take legal actions against these people
..is this something you'd be interested in doing?

Maybe you all should ask Karen why b4 judging her she didn't scam anyone this started with one person wanting to cause trouble and she and her family was threatened and all so yes she quit answering her phone because people cussed her and threatened her instead of talking.

Yes I know Karen she has helped people for 17 years in the charity business and most of the ones ( not all) raising cane was never told anything first of all I was there and the lady about the home . She can afford to go on vacation buy new computers and stuff then sit back and let charity buy you a house I don't blame Karen like the other lady said if you all would ask Her she would explain and that organization did redo a whole house so instead of spreading lies yourselves and rumors look for the truth she is a good person and helps lots of people year after year.

. Jay , the person that keeps sending most of these posts is the same lady the one that started the trouble and is using this situation as payback for a grudge that has nothing to do with this if she wouldn't have started trouble people may have gotten help. So beware you all are being used on here a d not by Karen.

No "Sharon" these are not all the same people. I know for a fact that these are different people. Karen hurt many people and more so CHILDREN!!! How many days have you had to deal with crying children, because they were told they would get a new place to live. Or explain to people that you aren't moving now. It hurts every time I have to tell someone that we were lied too, can you imagine what it does to the kids having to relive that? Oh and a few of the names she threw out have no clue who she is. So if you think she just stopped answering calls because of one person, that is real grown up. So she left many people out in the cold, facing evictions and other problems because supposedly one person was bothering her?

It really is a shame that because people are learning the truth someone finds it necessary to try and pretend that people should still believe in this woman. I am not sure what she has to gain from the hurt that she has caused or how she can sleep at night. So many innocent people are now left scrambling to try and find resources at the last minute because of the promises she made. How is that helping lots of people??? The only thing, in my opinion, that she has helped people with is losing faith in agencies that are truly designed to help people and trusting another. Oh and let's not forget the mental mess that she has helped put so many in!
