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 – more... of your abilities. – less
