Austin, Texas: Southwest Key Programs’ CEO, Juan Sanchez resigned following several investigations accusing the nonprofit migrant housing charity of child abuse and monetary corruption. Southwest Key, the largest shelter provider for migrant children, was awarded more than $1.8 billion in federal funds over the past 10 years for housing unaccompanied minors in more than two dozen shelters. In addition to child abuse charges, Southwest Key is being investigated for allegedly misusing federal funds, including allegations that $61 million in assets was lent to real estate developers. In one instance, the charity reportedly lent $6 million to purchase and renovate a Wal-Mart into a shelter facility, which Southwest Key subsequently rented for $5 million annually, according to the NY Times.

of child abuse and fiscal impropriety.
misunderstanding of our business and unfair criticism of our people have
become a distraction our employees do not deserve, and I can no longer
bear. It’s time for new beginnings,”Juan Sanchez said in a letter to
staff obtained by CNN.
Southwest Key’s board of directors announced Monday that Sanchez, 71, would retire from the Austin-based organization after 30 years. The organization was awarded more than $1.8 billion in federal funds over the past 10 years for primarily housing unaccompanied minors in more than two dozen shelters. The charity collected more than $500 million in 2018 alone, and is currently the largest shelter provider for migrant children, according to the Arizona Republic.
Allegations have included excessive compensation (Sanchez’ 2016 salary was $1.5 million), and lax employee vetting procedures that led to child abuse.
Additionally, in December the DOJ announced it would investigate the nonprofit’s financial operations for misuse of
federal funds. The charity engaged in banking transactions, having
amassed $61 million in cash, according to a New York Times article,
by lending money to real estate developers. It also rented shelters
owned by Sanchez and Chief Financial Officer Melody Chung, which
investigators may interpret as self-dealing. Chung resigned shortly
after the DOJ announcement.
