DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – July 19, 2017
They do quite a bit for the individuals which is a plus. As far as management goes no body knows what the they are doing. So unprofessional you ask them a question they don't have an answer. This company is so unorganized they have demoted a lot of minorities and promoted the other race. The big wigs don't want to be bothered with the individuals some of them go in their office and lock the door.
Community Living Director (Former Employee) – Charleston, IL – July 5, 2017
Overall great place to work. CTF has a great knowledge and great mindset for the residents they serve. Typical work day includes checking emails, overall aspect of the CILA, doctors appointments, supply shopping, and working on person centered programs.
I learned a lot in the managing field. Learning that you have to build some type of relationship with staff and support them to have full production.
Hardest thing about the job is the constant need of staff and/or constant changes that made it hard to follow the company with. You really do not have personal time to yourself, considering you have an on call phone for you to be reached at all times of the day and night.
The one thing I enjoyed the most is the smiles on the residents faces when they have accomplished something they never could have done, or being told they couldn't do. My overall happiness resided in the residents and there outlook on life.
Manager (Current Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – June 15, 2017
They do good things, but no direction and bad managment. They do have a good mission, but the employee morale is really bad, employees complaining everyday and higher managment does not care to listen.

A typical day at worked consisted of me assisted individuals with mental and intellectual disabilities. I would help them complete their daily goals, cook for them, feed them, bath them, and put them to bed.

This is the most horrible job I ever worked for. The supervisor,s treat their employees so awful. They treat you so wrong. They use the individuals money on personal things. Since I have been working there five people have died. If you are considering sending a love one here please give it some thought this is not the place for your love one.
Great opportunity to work in a one on one setting with individuals with special needs.
Assist eight adults (Current Employee) – Charleston, IL – March 30, 2015
This job is a great opportunity to work with individuals with special needs. On a typical day we get them ready to go to work like any other working adult. They have breakfast and are off to work. They return home have snack, their medication and dinner. They watch TV play games and finally retire to their rooms to prepare for the next day.

Never a dull moment at this workplace. Individuals and staff are fantastic. Must be mentally and physical strong. Some days really take a toll on you, but seeing the individuals grow and succeed out weigh all the bad things that could happen during the day.
