Assistant Program Director (Current Employee) – Manassas, VA – October 17, 2017
FHR is a great NPO filling a need in the mental health field of crisis stabilization. There is room for advancement, insurance, excellent PTO. Pay leaves much to be desired. Great starter job for those just graduating from college trying to enter into the MH field.
It was a geat place to work, until the company changed directors.
Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – January 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, DE – January 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.
Recovery Advocate (Current Employee) – Fall River, MA – November 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).
Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – October 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.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – October 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.
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ellendale, DE – October 23, 2017
Shining example of how a mental health company should be run. Very caring company to clients and staff Pleasure to be working with great people. I have never met a group of individuals who cared for clients as I have seen in this facility.
Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – October 4, 2017
I loved working at Fellowship for 15 years, hr wasn't the best of writing contracts t keep the company going. The clients were my best experience eve, I had good and bad days with them but through it all, we made it work.
Unroganized work place that lacks in rewarding compensation and opportunities.
Associate Clinican/Case Manager (Current Employee) – Georgetown, DE – August 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.
Low wage, non cooperative management, staff seems expendable to management.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Orleans, MA – July 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.
Productive environment to work in, as well as internship.
Recovery Support Worker / Human Rights Officer (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – May 24, 2017
It is a great experience to work at FHR, You can also gain good exposure an good training skills. A day at work can always go from a 0 to 100 real fast. You can never prepare yourself on what a day can end up like fyi.
Director of Case Management (Former Employee) – Phoenixville, PA – April 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.
Program Director (Former Employee) – Falmouth, MA – February 26, 2017
