    Negative Outlook

    I worked at RainCity Housing as an intern

    Pros

    To see people actually transition from homelessness to healthfulness and happiness. Unfortunately, the numbers are low.

    Cons

    Company and it's employees are operating their low barrier, mental health and addiction facilities with little or no direction of how to maintain control of the high degree of mental health issues and how they affect the stress and anxiety levels of client him/herself, along with transitional tenants and employees included..

    Advice to Management

    need to hire on professionals trained in mental health, anger management, health and wellness management, drug abuse and trafficking in illegal substances including prostitution and major theft. On-going seminars on a daily basis, much more councillors available to assist tenants in their own recovery while helping them find, work and places to live. There are approximately 25 tenants (shelter and transitional) for every support councillor and the employees counselling time and availability to serve these tenants is minimal. Very little is being done to help these clients.

  3. "Bad organization"

    I worked at RainCity Housing full-time

    Pros

    Great staff (not the management though)

    Cons

    Management get paid ridiculous wages while front line staff get paid nothing to do all the work. Working conditions were abysmal, cockroaches everywhere, the threat of taking home bed bugs was ever present.. residents with extremely high needs and would lash out. It often felt unsafe to work with the amount of unwell residents to staff. Cold weather shelters were the most unsafe of them all, I was often told to tell groups of shelter residents to stop smoking crack in the washroom to which they would laugh in my face and tell me off. Management useless. Nepotism is rampant. You will only move up if you are friends with someone in management.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of under-bidding to get funding for housing projects, how about you actually get adequate funding to run projects for extremely high needs/vulnerable people and stop giving lip service to "anti oppressive practice"
