Pros: concentrated attention to employee wellness, free participation in health maintenance organizations (weight watchers)
Cons: some executive level management inaccessible to regular employees, . no real job security for educational departments because of grant funding.
Focus Hope afforded me the opportunity to help an under-served portion of the population and to receive their gratitude upon program completion. There was also the opportunity to introduce participants to other Focus Hope programs and services to improve their overall growth. I was fortunate to work with a very dedicated group of people who went above and beyond to ensure that our participants received the most from our program. It is unfortunate that Federal Funding did not allow us to continue the program or further the participants education to an intermediate status.
