Homeless shelter for clients with mental illness
Program Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 1, 2013
I worked for Urban Pathways in which is also called Travelers Hotel. Its for clients with mental illness and is a 36 bed unit, they also serve three hot meals a day, also have a sitting room in which clients can sit in and watch television from 6AM to 12AM daily. I would sit in the office and observe the camera system making sure everything was safe and secure. Also clients could come to me if they had any kind of problems, rather with other clients or co-workers and we would work out the situation, in which I would write it up at the end of my shift so the supervisor after me would know whats going on on his shift. My time at Urban Pathways was a plesant one I got along with my co-workers and the clients, even though they can be hard to deal with at times , but thanks to my patience and understanding I always got through my day. I have learned not to judge a person by just looking at the situation they are in because you don't know what they have been through to get there. I love to help a person which ever way I can because I never know when I'm gonna need someone's help.
3 hot meals a day, a safe and secure place to stay
