Case Manager (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – January 17, 2016
The typical day began with assessing clients coming from jail or prison. Creating a treatment plan and finding clients employment. As a case manager I worked one on one with the most difficult clients but thrived at it. The hardest part is when a client went back to jail or prison for an infraction. The most enjoyable is when they completed the program and went home with their family.
Reaching the clients
Lack of employment opportunities for certain clients
Had a great supportive supervisor. Enjoyed my job but realized that I could not save everyone who lived in the house. With my boss and myself it wasn't about numbers but how we could help the ladies in their recovery.
Not micro managed and loved what I did.
When you work for a non profit you don't make big money.

This company from top management covers lies and when inmates tell the truth they have them incarcerated. They leave one person working alone male or female to look over 40 or more inmates alone the pay is horrible and the management threatens and talks to staff horrible.The facility I worked at in Toledo practiced in ethical behavior including inappropriate relaionships with clients. I am glad I left this place will ruin your carear! Everyone turns a blind eye. There was this facility is not safe!

The program offers excellent resources to assist client with socio-economic needs, it administers proven assessments to target areas of client's greatest needs and the program's overall success rate is above other programs offered within the area. Clients meet with case managers on a regular basis to adjust programming needs once goals are met making reintegration into society very successful. Mental health and addiction services are offered to clients that need or are required to attend and counselors regularly report on the client's progress. Case managers reprt to probation and parole officers on a monthly basis to assess each client's progress and assist in creating personalized programs for each client. The hardest part of the job is when a client fails to adhere to the program and is returned back to prison.
being able to adjust your work schedule when needed.

For the amount of effort and time you put into your job, the organization could be more generous with pay. But overall its an good organization to work for, a good place to get your feet wet in social services. Growth potential is fairly ok, but annual raises are not likely.

Community Re-Entry Specialist (Current Employee) – The Concrete Jungle – April 23, 2014
There is such a chaos and confusion that I cannot begin to describe there. Besides the management verbally abusing you at mandatory staff meetings; they will make you feel as though you cannot find another job, but they threaten you all the time. If you stand for anything, they will mistreat you on purpose and if you don't fall into the traps of sleeping with the clients, you can leave peacefully. If you ever get fired from here, know that's what happened and you rarely get fired from there for anything else except ethical violations. Incompetency rises. The only way to make it here is to be as inconsistent as the entire operation is.
i liked coming to work to see the drama unfold and laugh
The company is willing to help with whatever need an employee has. If they need to leave early for a personal reason, it would be granted, even if it was on short notice. Alvis House tries to treat their employees like family and the DD Services division uses the Fish Philosophy of Being Present, Play, Make their day, and Choose Your Attitude. Living by this example helps the day go by faster and also helps with understanding the clients even better.
