It was a geat place to work, until the company changed directors.
Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAJanuary 17, 2018
I started with this company from the ground up, a typical day was assisting a client, with preparing his breakfast and administering medication, and getting them prepared for the day ahead, which may include grocery shopping. or assisting with their banking, or even transporting them to the doctors office. The hardest part of the job was seeing these people suffer from mental illness, and seeing the changes they go thru. The best part of my job was bringing these people from severe mental illness, and assisting them to become better adapted to quote unquote normal life.

Relief/Residential Assistant (Former Employee) –  Millsboro, DEJanuary 12, 2018
This was a horrible work experience. The management refused to hire up from the inside. Instead, they hire others outside and demean the person who applied within. They refuse to increase anyone's pay and then tell you, that you are not working hard enough.

Overworked & Underpaid
Recovery Advocate (Current Employee) –  Fall River, MANovember 30, 2017
The job itself wouldn't be bad, if you were only doing YOUR job. Because staff retention is so low, you end up doing the job of many people.

A typical day would include seeing consumers and implementing therapeutic interventions. Recovery Advocates also attend physical and mental health appointments. You would then write rehabilitation notes, do quarterly reviews, attend clinical meetings, and file. (Yes, they still use paper records!) Recovery Advocates have to do site coverage & medication administrations (both at sites and in the community).
Pros
Great Teamwork
Cons
pay, glorified taxi drivers, baby sitters, Regional management

Group Home and Community Outreach
Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee) –  Worcester, MAOctober 26, 2017
I worked in a group home, and also did some community outreach in the city of Worcester for this company. The group home model was assisting individuals with mental illness with money management, medication administration,and support for daily living activities within the home. Lot of focus on budgets and hygiene, as well as transport to activities, doctor appointments, and family visits.
The outreach program model in Worcester was going to the apartments to provide support for individuals living on their own and medication administration.
Pros
balanced working environment and great benefits
Cons
lower pay and travel with own car at times

Management is antiquated
Case Manager (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsOctober 26, 2017
Leadership has no drive to move the agency forward. Upper level staff are over-payed and hardly seen or approachable. Dictatorship management style with condescending attitudes. Its a shame because the company has potential if the right leaders were in place.

Unroganized work place that lacks in rewarding compensation and opportunities.
Associate Clinican/Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Georgetown, DEAugust 18, 2017
FHR does not pay well, upper management outside of the group homes doesn't care much for you, you are expendable. You must love people to stay longer than one month because pay, time off, advancement, management care (besides direct supervisor) is all extremely poor.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Low wage, non cooperative management, staff seems expendable to management.

Overall benefits are ok
Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Orleans, MAJuly 18, 2017
Job security is great if you want to be underpaid
No time for a personal life
Compensation is far below what other companies pay
Benefits are cafeteria benefits
Direct management is superb; Corporate management is horrible
There is no culture. You are babysitter for adults who have no consequence for their actions

A typical work day involves dispensing medication, doing narcotic counts, writing rehabilitation notes, knowing when a client is in crisis and may need to go to the hospital, transporting clients to and from appointments.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Pay personal life PTO

FREELANCE WRITER (Former Employee) –  Hyannis, MAJune 13, 2017
I was a volunteer and learned skills in the kitchen of Fairwinds kitchen, prep work in the morning, writing for The Wave in the afternoon.

Learned a lot about preparing vegetables for lunch. Especially salads.

Cleaning up alone in the kitchen with tons of dishes to wash was not enjoyable.

The most enjoyable part of the job was my boss.
Pros
Inexpensive lunches
Cons
Cleaning tje kitchen after cooking.

Management was very bad
Director of Case Management (Former Employee) –  Phoenixville, PAApril 30, 2017
The director of the unit was very inconsistent in her managerial decisions and did not display any type of leadership skills, Her leadership style was very authoritative; do as I say, not as I do. She played favoritism among the managers which created much stress and competition. My co-workers were great to work with, my manager made the job impossible.
Pros
