Dangerous & chaotic; no consistent programing for very disturbed youth
Therapist (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 26, 2015
Don't work here. The kids are very disturbed and some are violent, attacking each other, themselves and the staff daily. This is worthy work, but there is such high staff turnover at all levels that there is little consistent programming. In almost 3 years I saw 2 CEO's, 3 Clinical Directors, 3 Medical Directors, 5 School Principals, and a turnover of the entire clinical staff (no exaggeration). Of the education and paraprofessional staff, about 90% left during the time I was there. There were some really good and dedicated people there who were a delight to work with. However, most of them leave because they are not supported by the administration who appears not to know how out of control everything is. No raises in almost 3 years. I could not give zeroes on three of the ratings so I gave ones. Please don't work here.
Some fine, dedicated staff.
Dangerous, administration does not support direct care and education staff.
