BONITA HOUSE careers in Bonita, CA
In the year and a half I worked as a relief residential counselor at Bonita House, the flagship residential treatment house of Bonita House Incorporated, I witnessed the deterioration of what used to be a well-run facility which provided clinically sound treatment in a "tight container" ( a consistent, well-run, clinically sound program) to a collapsing "leaky container" sinking ship, with even long-term employees jumping ship like nobody's business, poor leadership and lacking clinical integrity. The executive director has been on leave "under investigation" for months, higher level employees are leaving, and there is a major, chronic staffing crisis-- it is kind of a mystery why they can't resolve this. Possibly it is at least partially because the pay is so low. This place has so much potential, and its very sad to see it fall apart, but it seems that new executive leadership and/or a major overhaul will be necessary in order for it to be restored.
