    Pros

    CR's mission is to provide quality care to individuals with intellectual/ developmental/ mental health diagnoses. Through independent living skills and providing linkages to community resources, CR is helping people with disabilities live a more independent and dignified life! There are ample career opportunities with different concentrations in the field, that can open other opportunities for growth and development. CR has frequent job fairs, opening up career opportunities to all in the community!

    Cons

    CR works within the guidelines of policy and procedures, federal and state regulations, etc hence the on-boarding process can range from 2-4 weeks to hire as background checks, references, and executive/state approvals must be received.

    Advice to Management

    The advice for upper management would be to let the Q be the Q and not the dsp. The Q position and the combination of the dsp position is overwhelming. Most Q's need the money and wont step up and say doing the dsp work is taking away from the quality of the Q's performance.
