Powerful Mission - Damaged by Weak Leadership
Grants Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 11, 2017
Covenant House New York is one of the largest and best rated (by HUD criteria) shelter and TIL in New York City. It house it offers a vast array of wrap-around services, including, but not limited to: job skills development, work certifications in security, food safety, nursing assistants and retail, CHNY also has a full service health center, drug counseling, extensive legal services, a human trafficking program, numerous workshops on budgeting and money management, as well as a high quality housing placement department.
Despite all of its many strengths, the impact that CHNY could have on the young homeless population is very poor worker morale. There is constant management turnover and a merry-go-round of approaches to case management. Also, the company has been hampered in hiring better staff on account of its relatively low pay rates, especially for direct service providers.
