Run away and never look back
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) –  Tinley Park, ILJuly 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.
Pros
Can't think of any
Cons
Too many to list

Community Living Director (Former Employee) –  Charleston, ILJuly 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.
Pros
Flexible scheduling, Job Security
Cons
On Call phone, constant changes

Unorganized
Manager (Current Employee) –  Tinley Park, ILJune 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.
Pros
Good mission
Cons
Healthcare, Managment, Overworked/Underpaid

Decent company to work with, if searching for a job.
Custodian (Former Employee) –  Tinley Park, IL 60477May 22, 2017
These people are a decent bunch of people. However, don't work as a janitor, unless you don't have any other choice. There's one good thing I learned to do, and that is vacuuming faster.

Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee) –  Charleston, ILMay 21, 2017
I overall enjoy my workplace. Several great things about this place! Teaching the mentally disabled isn't for everyone, so getting a chance to do that for them is a very humbling experience.

poor,horrible,neglect
dsp (Former Employee) –  homewood ilSeptember 13, 2015
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.
Pros
free money for the staff

Great opportunity to work in a one on one setting with individuals with special needs.
Assist eight adults (Current Employee) –  Charleston, ILMarch 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.
