    I have been working at Childhelp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    the children and most staff are inspiring and will touch your heart and change the course of your life

    Cons

    the board and upper management are completely out of touch, have zero experience with children or social services, and this leads to a focus on profits (though it is a NON profit organization), job-threats, and an oppressive environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    several generations of boards of directors as well as countless local managers have shown that Childhelp as an organization is neither willing nor able to create real positive change. It's time to sell to a stronger agency that can remain focused on our mission.

    I worked at Childhelp

    Pros

    Lignum's village has a collective heart that beats louder than 1,000,000 times the ineptitude of certain slithering lizards who purportedly lead this facility. That spirit sustains the souls of children who need help.

    Cons

    In the past few years, I have kept quiet and observed several passionate, intelligent, and visionary leaders grace the grounds in Culpeper, Virginia. I've watched as they all strove to improve the turpitude masquerading as status quo. Children continue to arrive wide-eyed and faithful. Senior management in Arizona perpetuates a depth of mediocrity that baffles me. Why? Why create only to destroy? Are not the children worthwhile?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sara and Yvonne should make a bold move. Donate one years's salary to provide one year's bonuses. Your direct care staff deserves as much. Reclaim your reputations.
