Teacher/Counselor (Current Employee), Shawnee, KSApril 16, 2014
Pros: working in a group family setting, eating and preparing meals together, spending time in the community when possible.
Cons: pay and distance to and from work.
Working with the individuals in a group setting is very rewarding. We become a family and learn about each other. Guiding individuals to help them maintain their individuality and strengthen their individual abilities helps individuals to grow in the least restrictive environment.

former ftm couple
family teaching couple (Former Employee), Lenexa, KSNovember 20, 2013
Pros: free rent and teaching amazing clients
Cons: pay, management, no life, long hours with no overtime pay.
I would have to say that this job takes over your life ya sure its nice to live rent free but , its almost like they own every min of your day . Even on days u had off someone would be knocking on your door. There was no family time ever , if u r gonna take this job I would have to say only take it if u dont have kids because your kids will never see – more... u . Also the management sucks I and my husband we there for 3 years and went through 5 different manager's, and the turn over with staff is horrible because they hire anyone . They pay sucks u work overtime all the time because people call in and the sub pool sucks so u end up working. They can move u at the drop of a hat , that means your kids change schools all the time. And the way they mofe the clients from home to home , its so sad . They talk about them building frienships but how can they do that if u move them away from people they have lived with for years and just up and move them. They also have the couples filling out paperwork to make the client look as bad as they can on paper so they more money from funding. My husband and I fought the last year or so that we were there , but now that we dont work there anymore our marriage is back to normal. – less

Great place to Intern!
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSJune 19, 2013
I loved working at CLO because it is a non profit organization which helps people with special needs and disabilites. I learned at CLO that everyone has a flaw but it takes a true perosn to look beyond those flaws. Managment at CLO was phenomenol. The hardest part of the job was filing all of the paperwork becasue it seemed like it was never ending, – more... but at the end of the it put a smile on my face to know that i was doing this for a good cause and helping families that couldnt really do much for themselves. – less

My husband and I are trying to find a job in this career field. We both love people and love making others happy. But I don’t want my marriage to struggle because we have a great marriage and are both so happy. Was this job hard on your relationship? Also what did you like most about the job? What do you like the least?

Please, rethink working here.
Family Teaching Manager (Former Employee), Lawrence, KansasSeptember 22, 2012
Pros: amazing relationships with clients.
Cons: management that are far removed from "real" work.
The average length of time for an FTM couple is 22 months. Working with the clients is very rewarding but it does not outway the lack of respect that managment shows its staff. I was at an FTM meeting where it was discussed cutting back the hours of weekend staff, the question was asked "why would we cut the hours of the postion with the highest turnover?" – more... the answer summerizes CLO's attitude, "The economy sucks and we have a list of people to replace them if necessary". I know the perks are inviting, but I promise you it will slowly suffacate your family and when you leave you will have nothing. Your pay breaks down to minumem wage, you will not have support from management, and they will not have the client as the number one. I was there for four years and just in Lawrence knew of five divorces, please rethink this company. Go to a reputable place like Boys Town. – less

Productive work place when working with Mentally Disabled Adults
Teacher/Counselor (Former Employee), Iola, KSMay 5, 2012
Pros: consumers
Cons: poor management
A typical work day there is never a dull moment there were alot of issues that need to be addressed. I learned that you need to stay on your toes and that you are doing everything to the books. Management need alot of work with understanding the rules and what they are suppose to be doing. My co-workers were amazing hard working everyday people who – more... took pride in the work they did and the people they took care of. The hardest part of the job would be having more than some people can handle. the greatest part about the job was interacting with some amazing consumers and there personalities. – less
