    Continue motivating and encouraging all the residents. Maintain a place that is safe for all staff, as well as, residents. Stay interconnected with partner agency's as they serve in different ways.

    I worked at Hope Haven full-time

    Pros

    Clients are amazing to work with.

    Cons

    Everything. Hours, employees, managers, disrespect, awful pay, unethical

    Advice to Management

    The expectations of the employees are ridiculous and highly unfair. They need to reevaluate their priorities, who they set for their leaders, and their ethical standards. I have never worked under someone so hypocritical, disrespectful, and cold hearted. No wonder they are constantly looking for employees.

    I have been working at Hope Haven full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being able to see the transition that my client go through from the time they first enter the program up to the point of them getting ready to leave

    Cons

    Even though the salat isn't very competitive, the benefits, work atmosphere, and the genuine regard for your value helps make it worth being a part of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work that you do and thank you so much for all that you've done, not only in the lives of the clients, but your staff as well.
