Wonderful starting job - amazing experience Helpful with getting Domestic Violence Advocate certification Can get confusing in shelters, but other staff is extremely eager to help *you work at shelters by yourself*

The work load is heavy and the pace is fast. The co-workers are great. While the day is packed with work having control over who you see and when helps. Hardest part is the pace and the juggling of tasks.

BHcare was a great place to work when it was Harbor health services. After merging with another agency it seemed to be much more hostile than it was before the merger. It seemed as if it was more of a take over than a merger.

The pay is not the best but the people are good people doing a good job to service a population less fortunate. Supervisors are flexible and the benefits are decent. Pay could be better but its the trade off for flexibility.
Great company to work for if you are in the mental health or DV field. Really good for the work/life balance. Salaries are on the low end, but typical of most non-profits. Really enjoy working with the staff and the women in our safe house to support their journey to a violence free life. It can be hectic & challenging, but a great learning experience!
Diverse and dynamic residential treatment program. Opportunity for creative implementation of interventions aimed at specific program results. Management team highly supportive and encouraging of staff.

The hardest part of the job is having to do the never ending paperwork and having less time to help the clients. A typical day begins with paperwork and after that visiting my clients in the office or in their homes. My co workers are very nice and it is a pleasure to see them five days.
