CareGivers is about doing good work benefitting deserving people.
Pros: working environment and company mission
Cons: it's part time.
I write grants and develop resources to fund the activities of this non-profit organization that provides free services for frail and elderly homebound individuals through the spirit of volunteerism. The office staff consists of six part-time professionals and hundreds of gracious volunteers. The atmosphere is cheery and positive. Work stops at noon and everyone eats lunch together, creating a nice family-like atmosphere. Though everyone has definitive job responsibilities, staff routinely all pitch in to help a colleague during a busy period. We are dedicated to the mission of the organization. I have shifted job responsibilities three times during my tenure there, which helped me feeling challenged. The most enjoyable part of the job is receiving a grant and/or hearing a client's thank you. The toughest part is making cold calls and/or hearing of a client's death.
