Director of Marketing and Fund Development (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – June 11, 2016
A wonderful CEO who understood my role and supported my efforts. A great leadership team that worked well together with each demonstrating expertise in their area. The mission is compelling and the programs vital.
The most enjoyable part of the job was developing relationships with donors and others in the community who supported the organization's mission. Through special events, major giving, planned giving, and other efforts there were challenges but tremendous volunteer involvement.
The hardest part of the job came with the recession and its toll on the area (one of the hardest-hit in the nation). Yet it was satisfying to know that the organization successfully increased its fundraising income unabated.
Case Manager II (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – March 14, 2015
SVCFS is a fantastic agency that is truly benefiting the Stanislaus county community. They have many programs that truly support the county. A con is that there is a large disconnect between upper management and individual offices.
Clinician Trainee/Clinical Case Manager (Current Employee) – Modesto, CA – July 1, 2012
A typical day would include making home visit to clients that were referred to us. I would see at least one counseling client per day as well as help direct walk-in clients to the resources they were looking for.
Placement Specialist (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – June 12, 2012
This agency provides a great range of services to the community. I most enjoyed working and getting to know the families our program served. I did not however like the lack of support and knowledge from the management team. I was with the agency for 6 years and although I did gain experience and advance in my career, it was sad to see that not every employee is treated equal. In my opinion, if you are considering working for this agency, keep to yourself. Keep in mind why you are there and make children and the families your priority. If you try to form friendships, be ready for drama and gossip .
