This man is operating a FAKE group home in two 1-bedroom condos at the Riviera complex in French Park, Santa Ana. He has too many people in too little space (4 in each condo with very little space to walk though either unit). He shouts at everyone with his voice for every little thing, even though everyone is Deaf and not capable of understanding spoken words except two people: his girlfriend, and some dude named Rex.

Mr. Roehm DOES know sign language but refuses to use it with most people, even those who DO understand sign language. He only signs to other Deaf when they fail to lipread him. With his own girlfriend, who is functionally blind, he refuses to sign even though she CAN understand sign language by feeling the signs, same as I can.

I was tired of being treated like a misbehaving five-year-old. I was 25 1/2 when I lived in his mother's condo, which he lies and claims to own. He even opens the tax bill for that condo, when it's clearly addressed to his mother, NOT him.

He made me buy my own food. If I wished to eat with the larger group in HIS condo, I had to buy them food. Because he would not give me keys to both units, or even a key to the mailbox, I did not have access to the whole group home.

In a group home, all utilities and food are supposed to be included in a flat rent price. And that's the only chunk of money he's supposed to get every month. After I left, he made me pay an additional month of rent just so that he'd return my personal property.

I feel very bad for Mr. Roehm's girlfriend, Beth. She is my best friend of 3 years. She feels deeply regretful for when she began to treat me the way he does by repeating his lines to me. I do NOT want her in trouble, but I DO want the entire rest of his agency shut down and everyone moved out of his "group home" by authorities.

I am DeafBlind myself. My other DeafBlind friends all hope Mr. Roehm gets arrested someday, & so do I. He even has the nerve to harass the Medicaid departments of other states about covering cochlear implants, which no one needs and no one should want.

Exaggeration in my original report

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - ()

I stated that I was DeafBlind. I legitimately cannot understand what is being said only in the following four situations: loud background noise, multiple conversations, excessively fast speech, or thick foreign accent. I stopped exaggerating my hearing issues in April of 2012. From then until 8/1/2013 I had seen an optometrist, a regular ophthalmologist, and three neuro-ophthalmologists, NONE of whom were able to diagnose any pathology whatsoever with any part of my visual system that would explain severe reductions in my comprehension of printed words or visual American Sign Language. As of August 1, 2013, I have stopped claiming to have any visual impairment whatsoever. On 1/27/2014, a neuropsychologist administered a test in which I had to wait for all instructions to finish being spoken before acting on them, and I scored poorly. I agree with the neuropsychologist that I have auditory processing disorder and a processing delay, both of which lead me to conclude that tactile American Sign Language is a better way for me to communicate. Most people are unable or unwilling to communicate with me in tactile ASL, and I have come to terms with that. If anyone is Googling me and finds this report, any Yahoo! Groups posts, or message board posts under the handle I used in this report and its updates, I strongly encourage him/her/them to Google my legal name withOUT my middle initial, which will produce my latest social media profiles containing more tactful, positive posts whose information IS still accurate.

I will brave every attack from these ABUSERS until they finally lose!

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - ()

I can't believe these people just want to attack me more and more and refuse to take responsibility for their wrongdoings. They're making themselves look bad more than they are making me look bad. What a poor way to respond to a complaint. When you work with people more than things, you risk complaints, and you must have a professional, ethical, mature way of handling them.

Since the death of their founder on 2/6/2013, OCDAC has been seeking MILLIONS of dollars in donations to purchase a ranch in his memorial. They have always been a small operation, according to their 990 forms and a previous OC Register article about them to which my previously posted link has been removed. I have been told that when they get their ranch, they plan to KEEP the condos. They have always housed more than two people in each, and during a short time when there were just two people in the condo I once lived in, they were not given the whole place. Other former roommates of mine in Michigan agree that those who live in conditions like those OCDAC offers naturally become cranky, which may explain OCDAC's dictatorial attitudes most of the time. To my knowledge, no other agency in the OC has ever housed their clients in crowded condos. Of everything I and others I met through OCDAC have witnessed, the one practice of OCDAC that causes more harm than any other is the condos.

Sharky's admission that those who run OCDAC are ordinary people who do not intend to act as social workers can be very damaging to a "social services agency". I hope it does more damage than anything I have said, however, I will continue to persist. I do NOT love to slam the cabinet doors against the wall so hard. When I first moved to OCDAC's "residential program" I noticed that the walls by the cabinet doors were only padded in the condo that I did not live in. I asked that they be padded in both because I liked the padding. If I frequently slammed cabinet doors or made any other loud noise, or failed to pay the rent, SP Management would have kicked me out of their Saint Andrew Trailer Park YEARS AGO because they strictly enforce the quiet enjoyment provisions of the rental contract. I am not a nuisance tenant and retain full priveleges to live at the Saint Andrew Trailer Park. I proudly state that I have had no email or other non-public communications with OCDAC in over a year and NEVER plan to again. For what I persist with saying here on RoR, they accuse me of harassment and libel and threaten to sue me for money they're fully well aware I'll never be able to pay in hopes that I'll be incarcerated for not paying, my tablet will be confiscated by law enforcement, the libraries will revoke my internet priveleges, etc. They just want me silenced because they dislike what I'm saying about them. I have done all my research and know what all evidence OCDAC will be required to produce, and continue to doubt they will ever be able to produce all required evidence to convict me of libel.

John Patrick Rogers is newly involved with OCDAC. Several publications that can be found by Googling his name state that thirty-seven restraining orders against him are in effect due to the fact he used to publicize his former neighbors' addresses and telephone numbers in addition to their names every time he had something to say about them. Mr. Rogers has coerced Beth to charge clients money for OCDAC services and make them sign a fee waiver if they are unable to pay. The use of the term "waiver" suggests a legally binding agreement other than a confidentiality release, which clients of a social services agency should NEVER have to sign under any circumstances whatsoever.

In a Facebook post by the Huntington Beach Police Department about Mr. Rogers, Sharky commented that Beth will not accept the fact she cannot help everyone. I strongly agree with that and commend Beth for resigning from being a Family Home Provider with Family Connections, even if she did so to gain leverage against me for what I have now decided to say on RoR.

Other agencies are far more compassionate and would want to work with their departing clients to resolve any concerns about the way future clients of theirs would be treated. OCDAC continues to vehemently deny that they have harmed a blind, intellectually challenged man who is no longer in their care, myself, or anyone I met through them between the dates of 5/1/2009 and 2/22/2013.

Crying again.

AUTHOR: Sharky - (United States of America)

Please Adam. stop it.  You know you are trying to destroy OCDAC.  You again are making it look as if you are an angel.

You failed to understand the whole thing.  For one thing this condo is privatly owned. meaning each unit has it's own owner.  and the home owner either lives in the unit or rents it out to other people to live in..  This is NOT government owned housing. (HUD housing) to get over it.

I dont know who's idea it was to have A/C in your room in the first place.  But since you choose to have it in your room and running while your door is shut. it is unfair for others. which is why you were responsible to pay the electronic bill.  Trust me. there was a dude who lived here wher I am not.  He wanted A/C so he got it. but he refused to share it so he had to pay the bill or part of it.  It seems fair.

Since you ran away. Beth must have had assume ownership of it.  Her place has A/C.  as for me I dont use one here. because if I cant afford it I dont use it.  See how smart I really am?

 Now. in case you dont remember.  Richard had to make foam bumpers and put on calls. because you love to slam the cupboard doors against the walls so hard.

You really need to take a chillpill and rethink about why you post this.  If you are fine like you said you are. you wouldnt be here crying like wolf.

We dont act like social workers.  We are just people like you.  But we try to help others.  you are basicly making us a victum of you.

And here is proof. you called Beth your best friend. although you act a bit closer than that.  Now you explained you turned the tables on beth.

You may got here for free.  Donations? Maybe so but most of the plane tickets came from Beth's own acct.  so it is like you are hurting everyone.  If you know what I mean.

I dont write like a professional and I rather have it my way.  if you are that picky. well hey. you dont dress professional. you used to run around with a beard. then you shaved your head.  worn same clothes all week.  professional? no.

I am sorry man. you still got it wrong.  about this guy who used to be here.  The socoal workers got involved. but again you do not know the full story so I suggest you get out of it.  But I will tell you he got in more trouble than you so he had to be removed from here.  He wasnt taken away from us. we had to remove him and they had to find him new home.  He is mentally Ill and thats something you failed to understand.

You do act more like a misbehaved 6 year old. but we dont treat you like that.   Let you think and bash us all you want. but you wont get any support.

You saw Rex last hight huh? but you are blind you cant see.  Oh wait. you walk around without a cane sometimes.  you love to act like you are deafblind  yup I knew that already.

No OCDAC doesnt mistreat Rex or I.  if that did we would have left. but we wont be keying away on this site.  the more you type the more fake your stories are.  I in fact have tryed to explain things. but you took it all wrong and have crazy ideas.

You need to rethink of what you did.  I am starting to think that you give Karen some kind of abuse at your hometown "ghetto".  Your case worker is trying to help you. and you just blow up. just like that you did here and there.

Frankly I dont think you can blame your boss for messing up your pay.  If cuts were made you would have ajust and pay rent first before you freefall for other useless stuff.  Thats good you depend on your parents for $200 a month on food store cards.  we are not that lucky to get that much support.  We rather learn and be strong. not cry like a baby.

I said I ignore you. but doesnt mean I wont explain myself right here.  i meant if you came to me in person. 

Already googled your name and see all your crying wolf posts about different topics.  I dont have that.  in fact I blog about things on facebook.

and you mentioned it. you bad mouth about ocdac when you come to visit these 2 people who are just toying with you.

keep on crying. the more you say my name the more I come back reminding you more things you did wrong here.

Take a chill pill.  the guy abouve Richard has a good point.  you just dont want to understand it.

throw your mudpies somewhere else. not here.

fake professionals need the chill pill; I'm FINE

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (United States of America)

I most certainly check what I post for accuracy and truthfulness before I post it on a site where I KNOW I can NEVER edit or erase it. So I definitely wont answer the question about gayness. Bringing up sexual orientation is a demonstration of OCDACs lack of professionalism.

Those who want to believe OCDAC when they never even took the time to get to know me, just Google me and read what I write elsewhere online. Much more positive, often about things that are really not popular. I write in places where I can delete my posts, so that if it resembles crying as Sharky claims, its not there forever.

So, Sharky said hed ignore me, and hes not ignoring me. Hes making conversation with me on RipOff Report. Yes, I *could have* but I never actually did. I am MUCH smarter than Sharky, Richard, or any of these people who are attempting to practice social work in an UNprofessional manner. Look how Richard, Sharky, and strangers from LA county are trying to cover up OCDACs wrongdoing. Rex and Sharky choose not to see anything wrong because they just give into OCDAC no matter how bad they are treated or how bad others are treated. Thats their choice, and I respect it.

OCDAC preys on vulnerable, unemployed SSI beneficiaries. After I left, they started making every client sign a legally binding hold harmless agreement. NO reputable social services agency does that. They told the newspaper last year that their goal is to prevent lawsuits, so I doubt theyd seek enforcement of it.

I AM staying away from OCDAC. I have not been to French Street in almost 2 years and I NEVER plan to go there again knowing the upstairs neighbor wanted to call the police on me and OCDAC is irate with me. I will not send any emails to the OCDAC people nor interact with them when I see them on the buses. I saw Rex on the bus last night and never said a word to him. I just kept my distance and minded my own business. I wont even go and visit Beths fosty. I will defend myself every time until the OCDAC people learn to STOP making me look bad.

Medication will not change the way I think, when I CHOOSE to think what I think. My counselor in Cypress knows OCDAC and their lack of professionalism. He is on my side about all this. And if OCDAC thinks Beths fosty is on their side, let them think. Every time he spends Saturdays & Sundays with his fiance, and they invite me to her place, were badmouthing OCDAC a whole lot.

OCDAC once had a severely intellectually disabled young man and they always punished him with excessive medication. Luckily he was taken away from them by Regional Center and has not returned.

Its all about YOUR PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR Adam

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

The latest volley from your side is never about anyone on our side thats getting you to post these things. 

In fact, its really about your primary care doctor.  Dr Hong who's promotion is leaving many of his patients in dispair.  Dr. Hong is well known for making it incredibly easy to get your prescription meds filled and refilled and now he's no longer in the position to prescribe and authorize refills because he got promoted to a position hes no longer interacting with his patients anymore.

Yesterday I had a vivid experience helping one of his patients deal with the difficulties of getting her medication refilled.  And I believe you're facing the same predictament and you need not to be taking it out on us because you probably cant get your meds refilled for the same reason.

You need to think twice before where you decide to throw your mudpies at.

Throw it at the Dr's offices not us.

Take a chill pill Skorapv

AUTHOR: The Monstro - (United States of America)

Richard Roehm provides temporary housing at charity rates. Of course he's got rules everyone to follow. Of course he's kicked out a handful of people. That's something that's called "Normal" for an entity like that. In fact the way Richard goes at it with the rule breakers is far more liberal than what I've heard coming from places like the Tyrolite House in San Bernardino. The Tyrolite house notorious for kicking out almost 5 people each month during the 14 years in operation. Was a very big house to hold 20 plus deaf and disabled people. People moving in, moving out, getting kicked out each month is normal for a house like that. Comparing Tyrolite with Richard Roehm's project, I'd give the medal to Richard because he shows far more charity than the three ladies that run the Tyrolite house.

What makes it interesting is that none of those kicked out off Tyrolite ever went as far as you are going at with Richard with these posts you're putting up here.

This then brings to the conclusion below:

You can't come to the understanding that it's your own fault for getting kicked out in the first place.

Keep on lieing Adam. it is not going anywhere.  You have to involve me for no reason so that's where I come in.

Why do you have to be do picky over how people write. spell and use grammor?  It doesnt matter how once types.  You just love to cry and whine about everything that comes around.

Oh yes you could have step on my phone.  You were right there when you entered my room and have to tap me which pissed me off.  and knowing you are blind and deaf. you had no business going in there in first, second, or third place.  Are you gay?  I am not. so stop it.

Oh yeah? bring it on.  the so called frosty doesnt even understand the situation thats around him.  he's what you called him medically challanged.  so he really doesnt know.  Plus he is totally blind.

I make my own judgments about you standing in the way when I need you out of my way so I can tell beth.

You aint smarter than I am.  Again. you make things up.

I am the longest person living in here. after Rex that is. and we still here. we dont see nothing wrong compair to you.

That lady was kicked out for fighting with Richard.  Now. again, you dont know the real facts.  you are making OCDAC look bad when we are not.  You are a big bully.

Me bossy? puh-leez. i only tell you something and you teke it wrong.

Yeah so you are still a mommy boy for getting money from them.  Good for you.  I dont have that.

When I try to be friendly with you. you get mad and blow up.

Keep on crying Adam. you just cant speak for others.

And if frosty has been sending you emails on whats going on. then send me the copy.  Would you? nope it is just all your make up stories.  UNTRUE.

why dont you just get a life and stay away from us?  trouble maker makes sense to me.

You will never move on the healthy way. I am trying to tell you the truth. the way people are. etc. but you demand professional way.  I dont have a suit. nor owe one.  why dont you get it?

I can google your name on the net and find alot of places you cry about.  that's probably your way.  You wouldnt let go from anything.

Oh no you dont know what is going on.  send me emails to prove it ok.

I will never back down...

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (United States of America)

Let me say something positive: Richard has posted a license number. I assume it is for the agency. That is a step in the right direction.  But what about the two condos in which their residential program is located? Can he post those license numbers?
 
When I first returned to Orange County on 10/2/2010, I wrote the apologies because at that time Beth was a friend worth having, and knowing the agencys history of kicking people out, I felt coerced that if I did not write the apologies she might put me on the street before I got my apartment. Now she just wants to stay on high doses of pain meds & yell at people more and more, according to her fosty, who is my good friend. My once much valued friendship with Beth slowly withered away over the past year and a half due to her deterioration. Yes, I told Sharky Beth WAS my best friend in 2009, but she no longer is. I am moving on from her more and more, as Sharky has bossed me to do many times through the years.
 
Beths fosty tells me what he witnesses in Beths apartment, which I have known all along is one of OCDACs locations. As long as Beth has that fosty, who, to my knowledge, never has any interaction with Sharky, I will be hearing about how Beth treats people there and I will NOT keep it to myself. Since I came back on RipOff Report, I have said very little about Richard because there is no longer any need to. I never even witness what goes on at the condos on French Street, and I dont want to. I could care less whats going on there. But what goes on at Beths apartment is witnessed by her fosty, and he tells me.

Sharky keeps dwelling on what I acted like. Why is that significant? Sharky has no means of following conversations between me and Beth, because we communicate both ways in tactile sign and Sharky is not fully sighted. He even admits he was asleep when I entered his partition. That is a dead giveaway he does not know what was said prior to that moment.
 
Yes, they kicked out a dude before me, then they kicked me out, then they kicked out another lady in 2011. See? They just wanna keep on kicking people out for silly reasons like getting out a network cable without permission from Richard who is watching TV and does not want to be approached at all. It is so risqu to live with them cuz if you dont obey their every command they demand that you find another place. They wont even help a client find another place before telling that client they must leave. They sure didnt help me find another place, and nor did they help the other lady in 2011.
 
I dont have saved copies of my conversations with Sharky on Facebook. If he does not have saved copies either, what has or has not been said can NOT be proven nor disproven by him nor me. So lets move on from that. See how I write in neat paragraphs with proper punctuation and correct spellings? Then see how he misspells so many words? I am way better than him.
 
Sharky may perceive me as nosy, but others should not. If those guys did not want me reading their mail they should have put it in their rooms instead of leaving it on the desk in the living room which is a shared area.

Sharky is only respectful to those who agree with him on everything. Thats why he keeps putting me down, saying hell ignore me, then coming back on trying to silence me. I did not come back on RipOff Report seeking any response from him, Richard, or others who run OCDAC. They are choosing to respond, and they can choose not to.
 
Yes, I got kicked out of a project in Anaheim because my employer messed up the hours on my pay stubs, causing Housing to decline me, and the project was ordered to kick me out. But I found another place.
 
I have not been to the food bank in over a year thanks to my two loving parents who send me $200/month in grocery cards so that I dont need food banks. Should they someday stop being able to do that, I might return to food banks, but probably not the same one OCDAC uses. They love to call me a troublemaker, but I am showing the world I am much smarter and better behaved than OCDAC will ever give me credit for.

The married couple are longtime friends of Beths fosty. I heard the wife of the couple has a memory impairment, so she may not remember having been yelled at. But to my knowledge, her husband does not have any memory impairment, and may remember his wife being yelled at.
 
Once again, I am NOT responsible for others going against each other! I can only be held responsible for my own actions and NOT those of others. I am only sharing my bad experience with OCDAC, which is what RipOff Report is for. There are FOUR RipOff Reports against OCDAC counting this one, and until they learn to treat people better, they will receive more and more negative publicity. I do not make conversation on RipOff Report like Sharky is doing. I am very mature and make good judgements contrary to what Sharky says. And what full story do I not know? Beths fosty gives me reports about what he witnesses, and I am sharing it because he would be yelled at too if he attempted to do so.
 
The use of the phrase you need to by Beth, Richard, & Sharky is the reason I have called them control freaks. Until they want to learn how to talk professionally, dress professionally, etc., they dont deserve any more clientele. So they say theyre trying to help people, but their help just HURTS. Thats why I call their clientele VICTIMS. They have even admitted they are totally against professionalism. Well, when you want to practice social work, professionalism is an absolute must, and its what they lack.  
 
I do not know Beth as well as I once did, and I am not interested in knowing her anymore cuz she has turned back into the druggie she always was before. However, I must add that she has a history of refusing to answer Sharky for months at a time, so there was a short time when I knew Beth better than Sharky did. That is no longer the case.

Sharky keeps dwelling on I *could have* stepped on his phone. I never stepped on anyones phone. That place is the only place I ever had a roommate who complains for years on end about me entering his room without permission. Both before and after living at OCDAC, I have lived in SIX other places with roommates and never done that, because there was no miscommunication about whether or not I had permission, as happened there. I hope Sharky DOES ignore me as he says he will. I was not expecting any response from him.

I do not put words in peoples mouths. People forget what they say and I dont have proof of what they said, because most of the time I am not dealing with people who forget what they say.
 
Businesses who silence and demean complainants like OCDAC keeps on doing are businesses that deserve negative publicity, and I know that Ed Magedson and his staff would agree.

Crying again.

AUTHOR: Sharky - (United States of America)

Heh. you misunderstood Adam.  I was living in HB before I moved to Santa Ana.  And I was born and raised in northern of the USA.  you need to get your facts straight.

And you dont know beth as much as I do.  Although you claim you do and that you and Beth have exactly the same issues.  I beg to differ.  Only the dr can tell you that.  no way can you have the same issues as someone else.

I think you need to re-read the whole story. because you are constantly changing and adding more novals.

OCDAC has nothing to do with your crying wolf tactics. so why dont you just stop.  If you intend to forget all this. then why are you coming back here and telling crap about us when you dont know the full story.

Oh and Beth's apt is still an OCDAC.  that's something you dont know.  They are trying to help other people. 

Best you stay out of this and leave us all alone.  Since all you do is cause problems and dont really understand people.

Please stop crying like a baby and move on.  That's where crying wolf comes in. 

No one is a victum here. it is just all in your head.  Sad to say the truth.

Here is another thing.  You put words in people's mouth.  Like you came in my room when I am still sleeping.  you coulda step on my phone.  that's rude of you.  you tell me Beth said it is ok to come in my room. giving what time it was.  Beth however told me she never said that.  why dont you take responsibility with your wrong doing and how you treat others.

Enough if enough.  you will be ignored from now on.  I expect you to move on and keep your nose on your business.

Witness?  funny  the dude doesnt know what he's talking about.

I am gone now.

"crying wolf" and contradictory statements

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (United States of America)

Sharky himself told me he is from Huntington Beach, back when I lived on French Street with him. Of course he was not there when Beth called 911 on 7/30/2009. He was in the other condo and never heard or saw what was going on. Finally, finally, he's talking a bit of truth about me. However, I do not intend to be "crying wolf". OCDAC is still getting victims, and the dude Beth now lives with away from the "residential program" is my witness of how the new victims are being treated. He would not lie to me. His fiance is even tired of how OCDAC treats people and has made multiple attempts to report Beth and Richard to Adult Protective Services. One of these times, she is determined to succeed, and so am I.

Sharky is contradicting himself when, in his rebuttals dated two years ago right here on RipOff Report, he suggested that I was "way too close to Beth", "trying to steal Beth from Richard" and accused me of following her around. Now he wants to say he never said that? It's right here! As for his use of the m-f word, I do not have any saved copy of our conversation because I just wanted to forget this bad experience, but then I decided to file the RipOff Report and I'm paying the price because I must defend myself against this idiot who is making me look pretty revolting when he really doesn't know me at all.

I do not understand every spoken word I hear. I have an auditory processing disorder and visual processing deficit for which I am being evaluated by many medical specialists both in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2010 and here in Orange County nowadays. So, those who wanna deny I have any hearing or visual impairment at all, we'll see what the doctors wanna say. I do not act like a totally DeafBlind person because necessary information is not always available tactually. So I use my hearing and sight when it's not avoidable.

I take responsibility for my part in all that has come between me and OCDAC. However, they must take responsibility for mistreating me and the others they have mistreated. They have a portion of responsibility, but Sharky is just putting ALL the blame on me, which I do not deserve. But as long as he just wants to keep the fire going, I'll gladly do the same. They're going to lose, like it or not.

More and More misunderstanding on his part.

AUTHOR: Sharky - (United States of America)

Here we go again.  Sighs.

Adam said last time before this that he would back off with all of this. and that he apologized for all that he did.

But he's back here crying wolf once again.

He doesnt know the full story on what's going on.  He just pops up ideas and looking for something to cry about OCDAC, myself and Richard Roehm.

No. I didnt suggest that he came here to steal Richard's girlfriend.  In fact he pretty much act like it. from a person's point of view.  How he would follow her close by. or wants to be her sidekick so close.  It's not once when I have to tell Beth something and he has to stand in the way.  Telling me he should be the one to tell Beth things.  This was an important message I had to pass to Beth and I want to tell her myself.  Not some guy who'd change the whole story.

Beth probably doesnt know it but we had a dude living here who was kicked out long time before Adam came here.  I dont need to fill in the blanks here.

I dont cuss people off unless I am very upset.  If Adam had annoyed me over the same thing over and over i would have been upset.  I never said the m-f word as he claims.  What bothers me is that he wants to be all over me just to thank me a million times for trying to fix his portable tty when I did look at it but couldnt do it.  Ok I got it first. but why stand in my way when I am trying to get things running around here?

I remember the dates well so I stand corrected.  Nice going Adam.

Internet Troll? Cyber bulling?  Jeez do you realize what you been doing here?  running your mouth because you hardly know the facts.

Yes Adam IS nosey. If he says he is deafblind he doesnt act like one.  If he can hear words and put it in writing. if he can read small print such as picking up that letter that is NOT his and reading it.  For me. I dont touch stuff that isnt mine.  And if there is something for me. there is usually a note on it or an IM and I do look at it.

I am a pretty respectful dude.  I help Richard alot around here.  He is pleased with my handyman work and I share him my ideas.

After Adam moved back here. I heard he got kicked out of his apt.  I see he mentioned he lives on his own.

Hey. even having roommates I have all the privacy I distire.  No one goes in my room. so that's a plus.  Everyone respects our privacy.

I dont know anything about Beth  filing false police reports.  she doesnt play games like that. and there must be a good reason why she had to call 911 on Adam.  I wasnt there so I cant fill you in here.

I do see Adam once in a while at the Foodbank trying to move around.  I still go there. and I dont need him to know that.  He is to mind his own business and keep his nose on his own stuff.  I havent been sniffing around him so why does he have to sniff on other people's business.

I think Adam doesnt understand the language he speaks.  I havent been around this dude Beth lives with.  But I know him well enough to know whats going on.

The married Couple. well Adam doesnt know the full story. so here he is "crying wolf" once again.  He's famous for doing this as well as putting people against each other.

Again, Beth and Richard  have the proper permits and license to run their business.  It is just all Adam that thinks everything is fake.

And I dont come up with these crazy ideas, compare to him.

No I wasnt from Huntington Beach, CA.  I was from another state.    See my point? Adam does not know the real facts. the real story. and here he is just spewing words around.  I have never been in this so called ghetto area much like he has.

So Adam. Please stop making false reports about OCDAC.  You do not know the full story.  you make poor judements.  You need to be a man and admit your wrong doing. and keep your word.  You have some growing up to do.

You tell me Beth is your best friend.  Now you are bulling against her.  Make up you rmind.  we are trying to help other people.  and here we have people turning the tables and saying bad things about OCDAC

If this is illegal, I wouldnt be part of it.  But Adam is making it as if everything is fake or if it is all his idea.  Basicly. he waited til now to read the long report I had posted years ago.  Normally he doesnt read that much. because he never answers emails or stay on topic.  he just crys and accuses people.

Me with limited vision and hearing. I cannot understand a spoken language and at times I dont understand what I am seeing.  As far as Adam saying that I am learning tactual sign it's not true.  I did try it yes but I hardly understand this form. so I dont use it.  Here Adam is forcing me to use it. when I hardly understand it.  As far as my sign language goes. it's limited.  So if Adam can understand a spoken language. he shouldnt have any problems understanding the words I say  He seems to like to push people though their limits.  Richard respects my way pretty well there is other ways we talk to each other.

Thats about it.

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (United States of America)

Sharky is correct to say I was flown to Orange County, California for FREE. However, seeking the donations for my airline ticket was Beths idea, and as you can see I am getting ALL the blame. Beth claimed they have never kicked anyone out, so I felt comfortable taking the long flight and moving in with her. Once I was all the way there, less than a week after I arrived I was told I must find another place. Beth also claimed that all the DeafBlind services are available here and thats why she wanted me to move here so that I could use them. However, I have discovered the services are NOT available. I came to like the area, so even after I left in August of 2009, I returned in October of 2010.
 
I did not move to the residential program for the purpose of stealing Mr. Roehms girlfriend. Pay attention, folks, when Mr. Roehm states that Sharky suggested that. Of course, it was all Sharkys idea. There have been way too many times that a woman who is involved, engaged, or married has gotten close to me and I have received ALL the blame.
 
Sharky accuses me of being very nosy. When you share your home with other people, you can NEVER have all the privacy you desire. Furthermore, I take great offense to his wording that mentioned my hands. Im not going to keep any part of myself out of the business of people I live with. If they have to be that secretive, they really cant have roommates at all. Nor can they prohibit others from touching objects in their homes. I am visually impaired and was told before I ever came that touching everything like a blind person does would be tolerated, and it was not.
 
I am NEVER responsible for other people's actions or how other people treat each other, under any circumstances whatsoever. I am NOT famous for anything, to my knowledge. Sharky is partially correct that I do not understand people because Beth and myself have a condition that prevents us from fully understanding people. 
 
The A/C in my room was Beths idea, and as you can see, Im getting ALL the blame. I have lived in "group homes" that are actually government-funded and licensed, and they include utilities in the rent, no matter what the occupant of the room does with the electricity. I understand that OCDAC's "residential program" is not government-funded, and that's why they really shouldn't call it a "group home" or "residential program". It is nothing more than private roommate arrangements, which is what they failed to make clear to me before I came.
 
If Mr. Roehm and his girlfriend truly have the proper permits, licenses and everything they need in order to run ODCAC and have their residential program, they must stop refusing to show it upon reasonable request by current and former clients, not just investigators.
 
Sharky has the dates wrong. I was NEVER there in 2008. I was there in 2009. I told them I was leaving for 2 months because I could not tolerate all the verbal abuse I was suffering. The abuse continued over email, instant messengers, and social networks, so I decided not to return. So I had to finally block everyone and return to Cincinnati, Ohio. As for me begging to return, wheres their saved copy of my message begging to come back? If they refuse to show that, theyre covering something up!

Sharky writes a lot of ebonics and frequently misspells many words. He frequently uses the word motherf***er and that is comparable to the ghetto kids in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sharky cannot reason with anyone, when he just cusses people out, calling them motherf***ers. He is from Huntington Beach, which is a city known for whites, especially younger whites, who talk like ghetto blacks. I have caught him trolling and cyberbullying elsewhere online, which I mention below. As for Rex, he frequently uses the word F***ing in most of the sentences he ever speaks or writes, so thats why I compared him as well.

I deserved for my property to be returned to me, even though I was not returning. Everyone there refused to take the time and pay attention and understand me. I was told that would not happen, and it did.
 
Rex demonstrated what sign language he knows one day when we were at the office in Irvine, which OCDAC decided to give up when their previous treasurer died. So I was not sure how much sign l language he knows. I apologize if he felt forced to sign more than he knows how. As for Sharky, I do not recall forcing him to receive tactile sign. I was told that he was learning how to receive tactile sign & was unsure of how much tactile sign he knew at that time.
 
Everyone there was being very vague in their vocabulary choices, and thats why I was not understanding. So yes, I only asked for clarifications, and they refused to give any. So that explains Sharky accusing me of  being in their way bugging them over the same old thing at least 15 times until they decided to tell me it was enough. Thats what led to me being confused as I later admitted.

Mr. Roehm is known for his mass mailings. In January of 2012, our local newspaper had a story about the OCDAC accusing Mr. Roehm and the agency of a shakedown of local businesses because he was mass sending letters that had a somewhat hostile tone that was upsetting many local business owners. Sharkys comments on the newspapers website indicate that, just like here on RipOff Report, he has nothing better to do with his time than troll and cyberbully every person online that disagrees with him, especially those who have any knowledge of or experience with OCDAC.

The food bank program Sharky writes of is Serve the People Food bank, which they have only been involved with since August 1, 2009, and I helped find them that food bank. 
 
The hot night Sharky writes of is June 27, 2009. It was Beths idea to make spaghetti and as you can see I am getting ALL the blame. Mr. Roehm began to yell at me & Beth. I started ranting & raving inside the front door of #8, NOT in what Mr. Roehm calls the quad area. Yes, it was 2:30AM. Beth wouldn't eat any because Mr. Roehm upset her with his yelling, which was much louder and more constant than mine, yet the upstairs neighbor in #17 complained only about my ranting. She refused to shut her windows, so I shut the door. After that incident, I DID take Mr. Roehms suggestion of doing my loud ranting & raving in the city park across the street from the Riviera complex. But every neighbor within a quarter mile of the place continued to complain. I doubt my voice can carry a quarter mile, and since then I have assumed that the French Park Neighborhood Association has unanimously agreed that I was one of their worst nuisances in recent years.
 
I cleaned up after myself most of the time, except when I was running away from Mr. Roehm yelling at me. If Sharky really thinks he can clean up the mess I made, he can think again. Hes nothing but an internet troll and cyberbully. It shows through every word he writes elsewhere online.
 
Yes, the police came over the day before I left, and that was only because Mr. Roehms girlfriend called 911 and LIED. She claimed I was being violent when I was ranting and raving, not even saying anything that could have remotely sounded like a threat of physical harm. She was never prosecuted for improper use of 911 or filing a false police report.
 
Mr. Roehms girlfriend no longer lives in the residential program. She takes care of an intellectually challenged hearing blind man who has become good friends with me and calls himself her fosty.
 
From January through March of 2011, Mr. Roehm and his girlfriend had their first victim since my RipOff report. They yelled at her and told her everything she could not do, same as they did to me. They admitted to kicking her out. According to Beths fosty, their latest victims are a married couple whose daughter was taken away from them. I recently received a report (in January of 2013) from Beths fosty that it was Beth, not Mr. Roehm, who yelled at the wife of that couple until she began to cry, according to the report I received from my friend. Now its BETH who is the control freak who just yells at people all the time. She has admitted she sees her fosty as a cash cow. I visit her fostys fiance at least once a month, and she has more against OCDAC than I do.
 
I am still living in OC. I am good & stable at the Saint Andrew Trailer Park just about 3 miles south of where OCDACs residential program is. I live alone in my trailer. If I ever rant & rave there, nobody complains. I live right next to my managers. Trust me, if I was so loud I could be heard a quarter mile away, my managers would hear me, come over, & tell me to quiet down. They have not. Since my RipOff Report, there has been a more recent one (#801322).
 
I have Googled RipOff Report #580514 and found titles of Mr. Roehms vlogs saying I was retracting my RipOff Report. That is not accurate. I agree with Ed Magedson, founder of RipOff Report, and his staff whose philosophy is that how businesses respond to and resolve complaints is what separates good businesses and bad businesses. Thats why I decided to write a RipOff Report in the first place.

Apology #2

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (USA)

I will start off by admitting that I - *Adam* - was very confused as to what was going on during my stay at Apartment #8. I feel more and more deeply regretful for worsening the confusion of Richard, Sharky, and all who've become involved by reading my report.

I further apologize for sharing all this online. I had no idea it would cause this much harm to the agency run by my best friend of almost 4 years. She does not deserve any of the harm, and now I must try to repair the damage I've done.

It is important for me to mention that for every word in the English language I happen to know, I have a very vague idea what it means, and when I use my reading and writing skills too much, relationships get damaged. So, I am staying offline due to my difficulties with reading. I will not, I repeat, I will *NOT* go online and say any more damaging things about the Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center (OCDAC) or Mr. Roehm. I am well aware there is no need for that.

clarifications & apology

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (USA)

I will start off this update by apologizing for any confusion this report may have caused. I am very sorry for the trouble the confusion caused. I have difficulties using English to express things. I do believe that most of my statements can be proven true. My sole intent of filing this report was to say that I believe Mr. Roehm mistreated me. Everyone has a right to his/her own opinion. I chose to exercise my right by posting this report.

I would like to make a positive statement about Mr. Roehm - in the first 3 weeks I lived in Apartment #8, he was very helpful in connecting me with Medi-Cal (California's Medicaid program) and other resources I needed. He was also very pleasant and had a few nice conversations with me. But, he told me to "make myself at home" and when I did, he yelled at me for it. Nobody deserves to be yelled at. Yelling at people rarely changes their behavior. Beth says we must all be nice to everyone - that includes Mr. Roehm.

Minons From Sharky

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

Sharky says:



I have read this ripoff report and am filing it on behalf of Richard Roehm.  I am totally against everything that Adam P Valerius has put on here.  This report is all false.  I will tell you some facts.



1. Adam was flown to Orange County, California for FREE.  From what I am aware of, OCDAC had domations that they use to pay for Adam's flight. 



2. I am one of these people who has hearing and vision impairments.  I have lived here for 4 years and Richard has treated me with the highest respect.  I help him alot around here..



3. Not all group homes have food squeezed into the rent.  Living in CA the housing isn't cheap.  Everyone here buys their own food.  When a friend, Rex cooks, we always put our food together to make one meal.  Adam was offered to eat here, he did several times but quit because he didn't like the cooking.  He has been pretty picky and preferred expensive frozen dinners..  Later he would complain why he isn't with us.  Richard only asked him to pitch in. because most of the food that Rex cooks came from his and my pockets.  Adam was freeloading from us.  He even told me that he doesn't know what we like, and that what he likes is expensive.  I told him "Dude, food is food. we would eat it anyway."



4. Adam has been really close to Beth.  To the point he calls her his best friend.  He follows her everywhere she goes.  Not even giving her any space.  In my own option, he's just trying to get alot closer than a best friend, such as trying to steal her from Richard..  And this may be true due to the things he says, such as he only trusts Beth.  He's gotten too close to her to the point that I suggested to Richard that it looks like he is trying to steal her from him.



5. Adam is really nosy. he wants to get into people's business. He demands info or show proof of things.  If he is deaf blind like he said he is, why does he hear things and puts it on writing, and sees the so called tax bill that Richard opened.  Adam needs to keep his hands off people's business..



6.  Adam walks in my room one day while I am still sleeping, clad in my underwear and uncovered (it was hot out that time) and he woke me up and blabbed about his portable tty that he wanted me to fix.  I was upset about the fact he walked in my room, when I didn't have any clothes on.  Also he could have step on my cell phone which is usually laying by my bed on the floor.  He comes back a second later and puts the tty on my desk, which is near to my door.  Of course we talked about his tty via computer chat. but I didn't expect him to come running at me with it the next day while I am still sleeping.  He claims that Beth told him it is ok for him to enter my room.  However, Beth said that she has never told him this.



7.  Richard is deaf. and he uses sign language to communicate with people who use sign.  People who don't know sign, he talks with his voice.  He doesn't shout at people. unless he is upset..  Rex and Beth are the 2 hearing people in this group home.  As for me. I have a small knowledge of sign.  So people have to speak and sign at the same time.  I would pick up in time.  Sometimes Richard and I use our phones to talk to each other..  Adam seems to want to put his hands on everything. even stuff that isnt addressed to him.  Since I am not famular with tackle sign language, Adam was always trying to push me to do this. I have told him many times I don't understand this way..  He doesn't listen.



8.  I am pretty aware that Adam doesn't understand people. and he always misunderstand things.  You tell him one thing, he turns around and changes the whole story.  This is what he is famous for.  He gets people against one another, he would scream  in the middle of the night.  Cops came.  It has been a hassle.



10.  We haven't mistreated Adam.  in fact. we are trying to help him.  He simply refuses and wants to be around Beth.  In my option. he just is acting like a misbehaved 5 year old kid looking for attention, when we don't have that much time to give him what he demands. because we all have a life and have our things to deal with.  Adam only thinks of himself. and doesn't understand the world that lays around him.  He has also accused me as well as Rex and several others calling us "ghetto kids from Cincinnati"  I have no idea what he's talking about. because I have never been there.



11.  The 2nd condo is Richard's which he uses it to house deaf people.  His mom and him work together to get that property.  So it is both of him and his mom to deal with.  Richard pays for the tax and stuff.  This shouldn't be any of our concern.  I don't know why Adam supposedly has to stick his nose on everyone's business.  There is always plenty of room to walk around here.  He had the whole bigger bedroom all to himself. except one wall which was lined up with Beth's stuff.  He wanted an A/C in his room. so he made Beth work with him to get it.  The portable A/C just drove up the electronic bill.  He wouldnt share the a/c. only had it turned on and kept his door shut.





12.  I can assure you that Richard has the propper permits, licenses. and everything that he needs in oder to run ODCAC and have his group home.  If he doesnt have these, he wouldnt have gotten OCDAC.  And deaf or deaf blind people who live in the OC wouldnt get mu ch help.  I beleive Richard has been doing his good deeds and in good faith to help people get their needs met and help them explore with life.  He has helped me alot and in turn I helped him.



13.  Adam tells everyone he is going out on a 3 month vacation to get away from all of us, back in 2008.  I figured that he asked Beth to pay for the flight ticket.  In just a week since he left. I got an email saying that he isnt coming back.  It had delivered a heavy vlow to Beth. after all the financial support she has gave Adam. such as free tickets to OC and getting him settled.  I can feel her pain as she felt betrayed.  Thus causes Beth to be upset and took a while for her to get over Adam.  I has suspected that a 3 month vacation  is a plan to run away.



14.  A month after he emailed us all to tell us that he isn't coming back, he has been all over Rex to send his stuff to him.  He says that Beth and Richard refused to work with him.  Rex doesn't want anything to do with Adam.  So I send Adam an email trying to tell him about his responsibility.  I even told him that he has to pay upfront in order for Richard to send his stuff.  So After I told Richard that I suggest Adam pay upfront. he thought it was a good idea and asked Adam to pay the shipping charges..  Shortly after Richard completed shipping his stuff back, we heard that Adam was begging to move back here.  We couldn't have him back from the trouble he has caused.  And he wanted to be with Beth.



So as you may see.  I have tried under my good faith to work with Adam and reason things with him.  But he takes it the wrong way then gets all mad.  And based on the 4 years I been here. I have never heard or seen Beth threaten any physical harm to Richard.  But that matter is clearly between Richard and her.  Not anyone's business. 



Adam indeed was being a control freak.  He thinks that Rex knows sign language, but Rex only knows so little.  Adam tried to force him to use sign. same as force me to use tackle.  And he always has to be in our way bugging us over the same ol thing at least 15 times until we had to tell him it was enough.



Richard has a clear understanding with people who have disabilities including  autism.  That is what OCDAC is about.  He wants to help them as well as teach others about them plus the ADA Laws.



I am happy to hear that the CI campaign  is working.  I am sure there is alot of deaf people who want to hear. and people are trying to spread the word around.  Richard is not in no way harassing Medicare for this.  The CI is there for these who want to hear.  As well as other things such as sterm cell research and more.  If no one had any support, the government wouldn't pay for any future researches and for these that could help people alot.



Since July 18 2009. we have been involved  with the food bank program near this group home.  We come by every 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. We sometimes pick up lots of meat and drinks, as well as fruits and veggies.  Now with this program working great for us. none of us has to buy food. Now I can safety say  that this group home provides food for all of us who wants to eat it, who live in this group home.



I must note that one hot day, Adam wanted to have something to eat. it was past 12 am. I just finished cleaned the kitchen for that night.  Then Adam went bugging Beth to make spaghetti.  Something went wrong, and I had to clean the kitchen again.  But this time I had to deal with the clogged plumbing.  I evenually took over the cooking duties.  When I was finished. Beth wouldn't eat any, except Adam.  I had to clean the kitchen yet again. making it 3 times that night.  So it wasn't until 3 or 4 am when I finally went to bed.  I told Adam that since we all have responsibilities here, it is my duty to keep the kitchen clean.  He says that next time he wants something that late. he will do it in the condo he lives in.  I told him he should have done that in the first place.  He hasn't been cleaning after himself.



Yeah the whole misunderstanding goes to Adam. I just was here to clear up the mess he made.

Heres More Minons

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

After sharing your complaint with the rest of the residency.  I've come across more information to share.

1) You did eat with the group a few times then you quit because you didn't like the cooking.  You were given way more than 20 times the opportunities to dine with the group.

2) I stayed up late many nights during your stay due to the fact I had to pick up a HOH Knotts Berry Farm manager who has a medical condition that prevents him from driving.  And his shift usually ends 1-2 am long after bus service ends.  We offer employment support and that includes being the ride home when the bus is not available.

3) And you've had noisy fights with my girlfriend too, remember the last one the day before your departure? The cops came over.

4) Sharky even suggested that you moved into my residency program for the purpose of stealing my girlfriend from me.

5) You may appear to be very organized, but you were really a homewrecker, in a sense of spirit.  You made a number of folks here go against each other. 

6) Alcohol was never an issue.  I got drunk only 5 times around you and I didn't bite u as I don't bite when I'm drunk.  I'm cheerful like Bois Yeltsin.

7) You screaming out in the quad area at 2-3 am while I was asleep was the last straw. Neighbor was going to call the cops on you.  I told you if you needed to scream outside, you go to the park.  You didn't listen to me.

misunderstanding...AGAIN

AUTHOR: SKOREAPV83 - (USA)

Mr. Roehm has no understanding for autistic people. His girlfriend has Asperger's Syndrome, same as I have. She made many threats of physical harm to him and others, and he never removed her. Neither she nor I had any potential whatsoever to act on what we said. So how can he claim he removed me "for the safety of his residents and neighbors"?

Mr. Roehm is just a CONTROL FREAK. He victimizes people and expects me not to snitch on him. NOBODY IN THE WORLD deserves to get treated the way he treated me, and I am trying to protect people from him, especially those who have sensory processing disorder or are Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, DeafBlind, blind, or autistic.

I have some vision and I can read close to my eyes. I use magnification software on the computer. No license was posted in either unit in a conspicuous location. If Mr. Roehm wants me to believe he has a license for the group home, he must scan it in and email it to me.

I NEVER said "his Cochlear Implant Rationale campaign was working very well in dozens of states". What I did say is he is harassing the governments of those states and they need to destroy every communication they receive from him. This serves as evidence that he does not pay attention. He has alcohol issues and stays up late at night, so that may be contributing to his lack of attention.

Safety first for our residents and neighbors

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

The report was made by someone we had to remove last year for the safety of our residents and the neighbors.  Last year our homes were inspected by the city and we satisfied the codes. We have the license for the homes.  The specific home whereas the complainant lived in was for the independents.  He wanted the independent home, he got the independent home, and if he didn't like to be independent then that's too bad.  He has moved at least twice since leaving my group home.

One positive note out of his complaint is that he reports that my Cochlear Implant Rationale campaign seems to be working very well in dozens of states.
