Poor Residential Experiences
Child Care Worker (Former Employee) –  Shaker Heights, OHNovember 14, 2017
Perhaps Bellefaire has better opportunities in other programs, but its residential treatment jobs are not suitable for most people long-term. Everything seems to be about budget and coverage as opposed to creating a safe and sustainable environment for staff members. The population in the residential cottages are challenging and the experience can be incredibly rewarding. I would strongly recommend working in residential as a first job after college, while attending school (scheduling can be flexible), or on a part time basis to gain exposure and understanding of severe mental health issues.

School-Based Therapist Intern (Current Employee) –  Elyria, OHOctober 9, 2017
Fast paced environment, flexibility in scheduling. Working with individuals, groups, families. Travel is sometimes necessary for this job.
Workplace culture is supportive and engaging. The most difficult part of the job is not taking work home with you.

Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Shaker Hts, OHSeptember 25, 2017
working at Bellefaire is okay to build experience after graduation to get into the field you are pursing. The workplace culture everyone works as a team so this is a plus when dealing with the behaviors. The most enjoyable part of the job is building relationships with the kids. The pay is way below for a person with a Bachelors degree.
Cons
pay

Child Case Worker (Former Employee) –  Shaker Heights, OHAugust 15, 2017
Great Place to work! You can definitely move up in this company. The vacation time is great and you get it at the time of hire. Managers and staff work together. Pay is horrible

You need a passion and love for working with children. The job can be stressful but yet rewarding at the same time. You work with great co-workers who also love working with children.

Great Benefits and Great atmosphere
Program Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Shaker Heights, OHMay 14, 2017
It is a decent sized non profit organization so it really depends on the kind of position you are looking for. However, if you are looking for a place with great benefits and room to grow, this is a great place to work.I have worked at multiple locations through this organization and do not have anything bad to say. If you allow it to be, it can be a very rewarding place to work.

Productive and non stop movement
Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHNovember 1, 2016
I work with troubled and autistic youth. I am managing behaviors a lot, but also teaching many of the kids how to read, count money, and independent living skills. I've learned in this field that you have to have a lot of patience and see eye to eye with your coworkers! The hardest part of the job is when you have a client being non compliant and disrupts the unit and next thing you know is all the clients now are being disruptive just from one client.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
No breaks

Need a tough heart
Adult professional support (Current Employee) –  Beachwood, OHSeptember 25, 2016
During the interview it was not expressed as how "hands on" the job would be. There is always a chance that someone could aggress on you. If you have a heart and like working with autistic individuals the job is good. Hours are long and it's very hard to get your schedule changed, the pay is low. Get pto after 6 months.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Aggressive patients, bad hours

Fun environment, great team
Youth Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHApril 20, 2016
Nice entry into public service. Bellefaire takes advantage of new college graduates by offering a full-time position but at low rate of pay. Hard to get a schedule change and no raises unless union negotiated. Not a company I'd recommend trying to grow in, but rather a stepping stone to something better.

For the work being done, minimum of $15 per hour should be mandatory.
Pros
Free food, lots of vacation, benefits, great team
Cons
scheduling, communication with management is a hassle, low pay for work being done.

The job is long and hard but can also be very rewarding from time to time. It is a great learning experience for individuals that want case management and working with trouble youth experience.

Great starting company for mental health

Pros
flexibility
Cons
physicality, aggressive clients, high risk of injury, low pay
