Making a difference in the lives of youth and families is it's own reward

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsWorking with the kids and seeing the change in them for the better is extremely rewarding. Even in a support position, where you don't work directly with youth or families, all you have to do is go to a home for dinner or attend a function the youth are having and you can see the difference.
There is training and support for every department. The training for direct care staff is motivating and prepares new employees for their positions.
Majority of the employees are here for the Mission and it shows.
Excellent benefits and opportunity for growth & development.

ConsBeing non-profit, the salary ranges tend to be a little lower than for-profit organizations.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep recognizing and rewarding top performers in each program/department!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
