The Agency as a whole is wonderful & does great work for individuals & families with disabilities. Management awful, falsely accuses employees of hiding mistakes, hiding work, not doing enough work, micro managing, not being part of the team, you work many hours unpaid, not trustworthy. Culture at agency does not follow instilling Jewish values.

Youth and Family Specialist (Current Employee) – Mesa, AZ – July 29, 2017
Every day is different. I am usually out in the community in a placement to do birth to five assessments, in home support, and/or school observations. If I am not out in the community, I am either staffing with my clinical manager, child therapists, and/or Department of Child Safety (DCS) Case Manager. Besides staffing, I will attend and sometimes facilitate Child and Family Team meetings with all whom is involved on child's case. The clinical managers and the child therapists are down to earth and are truly passionate about the children in need of therapy services. If I had to choose the hardest part of this job, it would be working alongside DCS case managers who do not think of the child's best interest. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I make a break through with a client and/or placement. It is the best feeling ever!
Company culture, community outreaches, passion for the children
