All the complaints posted on various websites about ECI come from the same person, Hope Paulk, (although she has used a variety of names to make it appear as there is more than one family with a complaint).

ECI has no contract with Mrs. Paulk. ECI contracted with a host family placement organization (PRM) to place two high school-age students. The agreement was to include a room and two meals per day. PRM placed the students with Mrs. Paulk. Mrs. Paulk required the boys to purchase their own toilet paper, milk, light bulbs, etc. Outside of the two meals per day, Mrs. Paulk would not permit the students to have anything other than water. She only let them do laundry once every ten days.

Mrs. Paulk notified ECI she wanted the first student out of her home by the end of September. She said the other student could stay until November. ECI agreed to move the students, according to her wishes. PRM paid for the first student's rent through September, although he left on September 26. PRM paid for the second student's rent through October. The second student was moved on October 31.

Mrs. Paulk terminated the students' tenancy, but now wants to be paid for their room and board through June 2010. We have both her text messages and e-mails where she asks us to remove the students. Mrs. Paulk has no legal claim and her demands for payment, as she was the one who terminated their tenancy. Mrs. Paulk is free to rent her rooms out to anyone else at this time. Neither ECI nor PRM has any further monetary obligation to her.
