Great people working together to make the world a better place.
Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 28, 2016
This non-profit is committed to making the world a better place by improving the lives of children and their families. That focus carries through to the work place. The hours are sane, and people work at a steady pace. The "break room" is a large space with a wall of windows, plenty of tables, and a fully equipped kitchen that encourages people to fix a nice meal, eat together off the provided ceramic dishes, and put their dishes in one of the dishwashers before going back to work.
I was at Casey headquarters for a short-term contract. Regular employees seem to have a good benefits package, plus a sabbatical every seven years. I forget how long the sabbatical is, but it was more than a month off at full pay.
That lunch room! Really nice people. Doing work that matters.
Effective advocates for families involved with the foster care system.

Supervisor, Community Programs (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – June 3, 2014
On a typical work day I would provide support to my team of four social workers. I provide them clinical consultation and strategize with them on how best to serve our families. I learned that you must try things that are not the traditional social services approaches. Management teams need feedback from direct services staff to understand what their needs are.My Co-workers need open communication and they really care about our youth and families that we serve. The hardest part about this work is dealing with staff personal and personnel issues. Working for a good cause and a wonderful organization.
The company's vision, priority is to reduce the amount of children in foster care, as well as safety by 50% by the year 2020.
Casey priority is reduction, the LA County Department of Child and family Services priority is chlid safety.
