Compassionate, Grace-filled, & laid-back work place; Meaningful, worthwhile work
Certified Recovery Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 30, 2017
Compassionate, grace-filled and laid-back work place; meaningful, worthwhile work.
Despite having been let go from Thresholds in a less than stellar decision in which I felt unheard, I still whole-heartedly believe that Thresholds is one of the greatest agencies one could ever work for. The people we work with are among the most resilient, most courageous, and most hilarious that I've ever met and, until the very end, there wasn't a time in my 2+ years that I didn't want to go to work. Their smiles and laughter and the joy of helping find them a home or get them set up with food stamps and such made coming to work worthwhile. And the community at Thresholds is great. It tends to be a fairly young community and includes a lot of people who transition in and out as they get their certifications, but overall, the Thresholds community loves hanging out and getting to know each other. They look to support each other and there's always someone there if you need a listening ear.
laid-back, compassionate, grace-filled community; meaningful, worthwhile work; members are hilarious; the supervisors are awesome
take member's word over staff's, upstairs makes decisions that downstairs doesn't necessarily agree with
