Residential Advisor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – January 14, 2016
A typical day at work would consist of administering medicine. Getting consumers to participate in activities. Promote healthy living, like eating right & keeping house clean. I learned how to deal with people according to their specific needs. My house manger was very nice & respectable. My co-workers grew to be like extended family. The hardest part of the job would be trying to calm down certain consumers once they started to act out. The most enjoyable part was being able to feel like i made an positive impact on consumers i came in contact with

The program it self has such great values. It doesn't ay much for the position, and could use more structure for planning ahead to be more prepared working with residents. would recommend fulltime for a person with flexible hours and part time for those who can do on call or few days a week.

Communications Internship (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 2, 2015
As an intern, I gained invaluable experience at RHD. Every day at the office was a learning experience. Being a non-profit, RHD had implemented culture and values that was reflective in the employees working practices. The best aspect of working at RHD was high level of delegation and flexibility offered by supervisors. I had the privilege of witnessing my work on the company's website and see it being used. My fun, loving and super cool supervisors were the most enjoyable aspect of the job.
nice and comfortable environment working together to enhance the lives of the less fortunate

Working with the homeless was rewarding in helping them achieve life goals. This job was instrumental in giving assistance to those in need and that made the job rewarding for me. Co-workers all seem to have this objective in mind which made comfortable to be a part of the team
Lead Staff (Current Employee) – Nazareth, PA – April 12, 2015
I manage to double my salary with working so hard, and putting in many hours-it does pay off. I work well with my co workers, and my staff. My clients adore me, sometimes it can be a stressful job, but we have each others backs and are willing to step in if we another staff stressed out. Hardest part of the job is not taking the job home with you, most enjoyable part of the job is putting a smile onh your clients faces!

A typical day at work for me were to oversee seven houses. I usually would be on site to at least three of my houses per work day. I usually speak with staff and speak with some individual. It's usually a fun day because I get to find out what's going on in that individual's life and to see how they are accomplishing their goals..I also get to check in with the Site Managers and the staff to see if they need to talk with me about new medications, new job site, family and doctor's information, training of new staff etc...
flexiable work schedule

Behavioral Health Consultant (Former Employee) – York, PA – February 10, 2015
There was no support from administrative staff. The main office is in Philly and I was in York. The staff in Philly had no idea what was happening in the York office and made rash decisions based on what one person told them.
