Case Planner (Former Employee) – Bronx, New York – June 13, 2015
My employment in the Therapeutic/Family foster care program afforded me the opportunity to work with families towards reunification. The staff and administrative team is professional and friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the smile's on families faces when the family reached the goal of reunification.

Assistant Cook (Former Employee) – New York – January 27, 2014
Well the experience I had at Cardinal McCloskey was certainly fun, friendly, and productive. A typical day at work for me, well it was to go in and do all the work I had to do and give 100% which I was recognized for and always thanked and appreciated for all the work I do. My co-workers took some getting used to but once that happened we were a family and thats what I love about this company, however as friendly as this company may be they are very unpredictable and will let you go in an instant without letting you know. I was let go with only 2 days notice of finding another job and parents and staff were very upset with the way they were treated being let go. When I was re-hired by this company all the family and friendliness had gone and employers and supervisors no longer cared for their employees. I had to leave this company after 4 years because I was being disrespected and my work was not appreciated. I was taken advantage of with this company. Never again.
family orientated atmosphere, always room for growth
short breaks, poor health care, poor dental, unfriendly supervisors
Parent Advocate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 2, 2013
A typical day at work was busy at all times and very overwhelming at times because of families situation daily needed to be faced. i learned a lot working for Cardinal McCloskey Services specially with clients daily life. i had great coworkers very respectful and always willing to help. it was over all a great environment. one of the hardest part of the job was knowing when families separate and kids enter the foster care system. but there were part of my job that i enjoyed and was when failies recuperate for sake of their children and have a better life for them.
Always learning because we had to deal with a lot of clients experiences, positive or negative was always a learning process.

Residential Habilitation Counselor (Current Employee) – Valhalla, NY – May 10, 2013
I work with Autistic young adult, I teach them how to be as independent as possible. The most rewarding part of the of the job is when one of them are able to master a goal that we have been working on. the down side of the job is that they are non- verbal and some times it is hard to know when they are going through feelings of pain and anxiety. I work with an amazing bunch of people that love the individuals we serve and are dedicated to them as well.
