Everything with emphasis to the Board of Directors

Mandate driven social advocates that strive to enhance families confronted with a variety of situations.
Kinship Care Worker/Family Advocate (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PA 19027May 30, 2014
Each day brought forth new challenges that had to be met due to state or agency mandate. I learned that your co-workers are an invaluable source of knowledge. Management was often inundated with their own mandates, projects, and agendas. However, periodically they would encourage collective and individual solutions and/or approaches to reoccurring issues. Co-workers were knowledgeable and organized to maximize time and priority. The hardest part of the job was being placed in unsafe situations when removing children from placements and making home visits. The most enjoyable part of my job was returning a child or children to their families of origin.
Pros
Compassionate employees driven by the hope of positive change.
Cons
The agency didn't always pay employees on time. Didn't offer competitive wages for the workload.

Senior Truancy Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 17, 2013
Learned a lot about interacting with the opposite sex, including how to engage them (since it was predominantly women).
Worked as a Truancy Case Manager where the case load was appropriate and on rare occasions overwhelming. Furthermore, although, the management team wasn't as well organized, they got the job done: working well with subordinates and properly allocating cases.

Group Leader/Servant Leader Intern (Former Employee) –  philadelphia, paJuly 9, 2013
My main responsibilities of the job included leading children in after school activities. While holding this position I learned how to handle a large group of children and effective ways to teach. My coworkers and I were very close. The hardest part of the job was the lack of supplies at times and the most enjoyable part was seeing the children grow and learn good decision making skills.
