Site Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 28, 2017
I worked for Family Matters of Greater Washington. I found it to be a very nice place. Although, My job was not in that department. I worked at another office for Family Matters and had contact with my supervisor whenever needed.
Unfortunately, their contract had expired at the place that I worked and was laid off.
Overall, I had enjoyed working for Family Matters and did my job very well.
Fun place to work and very supportive work environment

Excellent agency and cares for the welfare of its consumers. The agency is consumer and patient focused. I would strongly recommend that social workers and mental health professionals work for family Matters of Greater Washington.
EDUCATIONAL SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 27, 2017
I enjoyed working at Family Matters. It felt like family. It was an intimate setting where we worked closely together. The enjoyable part of the job was to help the clients improve educationally so that they are able to pass their GED or high school classes.
Enjoyed trying to make the children's lives better.

The Mental Health department at Family Matters has higher than average turnover because of poor management. Management responds to staff concerns with intimidation or indifference. I never got paid on time.
None (Current Employee) – Nonesuch Point, ME – November 18, 2016
CEO is toxic..there is a lot of turn over in this organization. CEO is not for staff. Don't get on her bad side or you will be fired or don't argue or dislike something with her husband or you will be fired....Need new CEO...
Therapist (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – November 16, 2016
Very chaotic and poor management. Supervisors are incredibly overburdened and have little time to provide direction and support. Good job for people who are independent and self starter. Very unstructured and you spend most of your time in the community. Pay and benefits are mediocre, nothing to get excited about. No job or pay negotiations.
Independence and opportunity for growth
Very disorganized, not enough supervisors, little support
Psychiatric Rehabilitation Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oxon Hill, MD – November 16, 2016
I worked for the Oxon Hill office and the program director is relentless by micromanaging and harassing employees. The culture is not healthy due to the insecurities of management. Experience was great with the job itself. Management needs training with interpersonal skills.
CSW (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – July 3, 2016
I currently work with this organization as a CSW.I have worked at other agencies but their management lacked structure and a means of moving forward.Family Matters promotes growth and obtaining knowledge to go beyond where you may currently be.
