Very poor management and a lack of concern for children's welfare
case planner (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NY 11201November 13, 2013
I've worked as a case planner for over a year and is disappointed with the lack of care that I believe a foster care agency should have. There are a lot of foster parents at the agency whose only concern is for their board check. Most of them could care less about the trauma some of these children suffer from. I believe that some of them are better off with their natural families. In addition, when case planners present an issue to their superiors about a concern for a child, No one really seems to care. You have to keep reminding them about the urgency of a matter. The agency also doesn't Have money for cribs and other relevant items, due to funding issues. I don't know why The agency is still allowed to be open ---it's completely disorganized and a mess. Looking for a new job!

Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYNovember 7, 2014
It was always a busy day assisting the manager with the day-today office activities. I have learned varied office procedures and was able to relate to my co-workers by working harmoniously with them.

Not a good place of employment
Clinical Social Worker (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 21, 2014
Very hectic, no support from supervisor or management. When there is a problem you have to figure out the solution on your own or ask another co-worker. Normally the coworkers dont know either, because they have revolving door.
Cons
low pay and no raise

Parent Advocate/Facilitator I (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 22, 2012
A typical day at work consists of not even getting to my desk without the birth parents whom I advocate my services for greet me as soon as they see me. I learned that parents engage more if they have someone who can relate to what they might be going through in foster care, for I was a parent with children in foster care before. My co-workers work well with me and depend on me to guide the parents in the right direction. The hardest part of my job is I am between a rock and a hard place as a staff member and a parent advocate, sometimes co-workers and I clash with differences about the parents, but ultimately come together to do what is in the best interest of the family. The part I love about my job is being a Group Facilitator 1 for the Parenting Journey module, which takes parents down memorylane when they were parented and they can make a decision to continue to parent in that way or use their own style of parenting. Overall, I have a passion for this type of work loving and learning to work well with people and getting someone to smile again.
