    Pros

    Some of the social workers and other healthcare professionals were caring and knew what they were doing. Some of the staff at the group homes (separate houses for the boys and another one for the girls) were really dedicated to the clients.

    Cons

    The atmosphere was very disorganized. The rules were inconsistent, so as a direct care worker, it was hard to know when to enforce them and when not to. There was minimal training.

    Advice to Management

    More training and support to direct care workers


  2. Amazing opportunity to impact a life
