The Ross family is going an excellent work in fulfilling their mission to serve children by providing behavior, psychological, and academic care.
Respite Worker (Former Employee) – Brewster, NY – August 21, 2016
However, a lot of the female management staff manage from a stance of "bullying". As a staff member at the Brewster facility you are expected to go along with the foolery of inadequate care/treatment of helpless children, their personal inter-relationships among subordinates and management, and the lack of sufficient pay that is comparable to the work that is being performed.
Overall some of the male management are not willing to relinquish their traditions of how the facility is operated. They are very territorial and easily offended when challenged to change.
I personally witnessed staff degrading resident's ability to over come their personal challenges athletically, psychologically, and emotionally. Many of the staff are emotionally frustrated with their job/position and possible their personal lives too.
I did not learn anything at this facility I found it to be a waist of my time. I resigned in less than one year.
One thing to note, I did build rapport with a few of the children and have run into one or two of them since I and they have left the facility.
The Children are great despite their challenges!
salary and some staff members lack of support for all the children
