    Pros

    Giving and receiving love from the wonderful individuals with developmental dissabilities.

    Cons

    Terribly understafed. You are often a single staff supporting several individuals with severe bahavior problems, while trying to cook, clean, feed, do outings, and administer mediactions. Terribly unsafe for everyone. Poverty level pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please help us do the best job we can, by staffing us appropriately. No one should work alone, while supporting multiple individuals with severe needs or dangerous behavioral problems.
