Jr. Superintendent (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 8, 2017
This was a challenging but rewarding place to work. It was truly a home for displaced children. New CEO in 2012 changed culture from helping, caring organization to a money seeking holding cell for troubled youth. Long time employees who dedicated their lives to the home were dismissed or left quickly on their own accord. Turnover became overwhelming and employees just go through the motions now and leave as soon as …
Lead Staff (Former Employee) – Baltimore County, MD – June 11, 2017
This is a horrible place to work! From the disorganized staff to the dangerous environment for the children and staff! Never have worked in such a horribly atmosphere ever in my life and I would not recommend this place of employment for anyone.
Management expects employees to give 100% each day, but everything goes unnoticed and your work is NEVER appreciated. The children in this program are not benefititng at all
The Children's Home is located in beautiful Winston-Salem, NC. The sense of community is being rebuilt and there are a lot of changes going on right now. There is room for improvement and management is currently doing a lot to make these improvements. Management is working hard to make the The Children's Home an overall better place to be employed as well as a more suitable place to better the children of surrounding communities. Nice place to work overall.

Transitions Program Youth Caregiver (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 24, 2015
For me there is always something to learn at work. I am an enthusiastic, hard worker and a quick learned person. In my current job, I supervise and coach groups of people. which gave me the opportunity to be a follower, team player and good manager . In my current job, I always received awards because I always do my best when I work with my groups. I am very friendly and outgoing and I am very good at resolving problems. In my department, everyone has a great relationship with my because I am always available to help them and I always give the best of me.I love every job I have, because I put all my passion on what I do.
former employee/cook/manager (Former Employee) – Baltimore County, MD – November 15, 2015
Former employee at TCH in Baltimore Maryland. The kids are disrespectful, the staff is just as bad if not worse. No backing and support from upper management. A pitiful 1 percent raise in five years!! That's because all the money goes to people who are either stealing and embezzling. The manager responsible for the kitchen, and the grounds has no backbone whatsoever and if you have a problem don't expect any support from them. They expect you to make 100 pounds of food for everyone with little wages and then want to question you if you have two little hours of overtime on your check. There are xmas bonuses and the health benefits suck. If this was your last job between homelessness and this, trust me it is better to be homeless because this aggravation isn't worth this mistreatment.
request for days off, free lunch
no breaks, horrible management, rude children, low wage compensation, etc
Administrative (Former Employee) – Tampa – August 13, 2015
Working for this company can be very rewarding. management is difficult to work with especially at the executive level. The culture is one of blaming rather than solutions and are not proactive but reactive.
A lot of change in supervisors, hard to know who to listen to, non-medical personnel try to run medical
Medical Coordinator, Lead Nurse, Nurse Manager, (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – June 10, 2012
Very un-organized due to short staffing and mismanagement. Never had another medical person on hand to run something by if I had a question. Other shift nurses didn't want to do any thing above and beyond. It was difficult to get paraprofessionals to understand the importance of getting the residents to the nurse in a timely manner for medications. I loved working with the kids. I really enjoyed doing structured activities with the children. I enjoyed going to treatment teams and helping where I could. I enjoyed teaching and answering questions when they arose. I enjoyed the admission process and helping the new resident feel more comfortable. I enjoyed working closely with the pharmacy to ensure medication management was working smoothing across all systems. I enjoyed ensuring all stock medications and supplies were ordered and ready for all residential cottages as needed. I enjoyed writing and updating as needed policies, procedures, standing orders and the medication administration manual. And keeping all paperwork updated in the computer.
the farm atmosphere, large home like grounds/campus
short breaks/if any. couldn't leave the campus at all
