Associate (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 20, 2017
This organization is wonderful. I have seen direct care and non-direct care staff work together to meet challenging goals to benefit the kids. There is a lot of support for those who are open to learning and growing within their role. The pay could be better, but that is always the case in non-profit.
Direct Care Counselor (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 29, 2017
Our leadership team has shown great improvement in becoming involved in the direct care of our residential residents. They often come to the floor and observe so that they can get a better under of the agency. I love working with the kids and my coworkers are amazing. Being able to be a stable support system for our residents is an amazing thing. It's so heart warming to see them grow. Despite the negative reviews I've seen on here, I believe our leadership and management team care about giving the kids the best therapeutic environment they can and a supportive environment for staff. If you are doing your job how you were trained, then you will have no issues.
supportive environment. Caring leadership. Fun job overall
A few negative coworkers who are resistant to change
Staff (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 27, 2017
I did not have a good experience at all. Leadership had been in place for a while and were not open to feedback and took constructive criticism as a personal attack. The direct care staff worked well together for the most part. The pay was decent. And there were a lot of perks of a non-profit but the poor leadership led to high turn over rates for years. And to date, that problem has not been rectified because no one in leadership cares.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 3, 2017
Despite other reviews, I really enjoy working here, I have been here for two years exactly and it is an amazing place. We of course have our flaws, just as every other place, but we are a team here. If you take the time to discuss your concerns and ideas, they will be listened to. We do a lot of good for these children and we have employees that have been here 10-20+ years. It takes a special kind of person to work here and to appreciate how much effort everyone puts in here.
Support, amazing staff, staff is easy to talk to, comfortable expressing my concerns.
Pay raises are minimal, some departments can be a little cliquey.
