Great for someone who does not like the office environment due to traveling to different schools to conduct the SafeTalk presentations. Overall, a great environment with helpful supervisors.

Good pay but not worth the stress.
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) –  Cos Cob, CTJuly 11, 2014
There is no job security with this employer. Terminations can happen based of any kind of accusation and no explanation or investigation will happen. You run the risk of physical abuse from clients and if harmed you are the one who is looked at for fault. There is consistency with staff as far as house rules for clients and following program. Clients are more valuable to KIC than their employees. Training is a learn as you go bases and nothing is explained to you until you have made a "mistake". The turn around is very high; people rarely make it past 6 months.
Pros
Great Pay, Great house actives with clients
Cons
No job security, lack of support from staff and management, Lack of consistency for policies and procedures among staff.

Great place to work
Residential Counselor (Former Employee) –  Cos Cob, CTJanuary 27, 2014
I thought this job was great and very emotional at times due to the ages of the children who were being sheltered at Kids In Crisis. The job provided me with great experience and a continued desire to help others.

Good place to gain social work experience.
Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cos Cob, CTJune 11, 2012
Working with children in a residential setting is both rewarding and exhausting but at the end of the day, you will always know that you made a difference. Politics of administration are not different from that of other agencies but the children's best interest is always first! Learn the ropes thoroughly so that you can perform your job to the best of your abilities.
