Work with kids that has been hurt it was hard at first now it easy because I learn how be a better person.

Koinonia was a wast of time for my career path. No support from supervisors or managers. I see why they are understaffed, the quality of supervisors are substandard. Individuals are aloud to steal your stuff, spit on you, hit or kick you and say anything too you, as long as the rules benefits Koinonia they will bend them. You are under paid and over worked. Their annual reviews are inconsistent as the supervisors, They will find every reason not to give you a deserving raise. This place has no foundation for growth. I truly feel the individuals are taken advantage of, they are placed in classroom setting like a learning institution and most can't recognize their own name, this is simply a day care for adults.
