    I worked at The Bair Foundation part-time

    Pros

    Getting to be a part of helping children in the foster system is amazing. You really get attached to the families you get to serve. It is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Every decision is made through the corporate office. There seemed to be a lot of "red tape" to go through to get anything done. Some of the policies and procedures were out dated.
