Residential Counselor (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – March 14, 2018
When I first started this place I had a horrible manager that hired all of her friends that tried to get everyone fired that wasn't in their clique. I would literally get in trouble for showing up 5 minutes late or because I was more concerned about not making a medication error than the girl sneaking a peak at the TV (no TV consequence) when I was single staffed. When the clique left things got easier but then they hired this complete idiot for a manager. The program was just awful after that. This new supervisor seriously tried to have me killed, had me standing on a street corner and have me do and say things to people that would've had me seriously hurt. For the most part I had no issues dealing with the kids and I've dealt with the worst in my program at the time. This manager basically allowed them to behave any kind of way and it's all over when they can just call up your supervisor and go over your head when you're trying to set limits. At one point management gave the OK for the clients to date each other which caused even more drama. Residential Counselors were constantly thrown under the bus even though they were doing what they were just doing what they were told to do.
Clinical Coordinator (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 13, 2017
CFP was a great place to learn about clinical social work, contract management, and collaboration. The workplace was very comfortable and welcoming. I enjoyed my co-workers and the environment. The hardest part of the job was working with provider agencies who were not effective in their execution of services. Teh most enjoyable was interfacing with many different individuals and groups involved in the cases.

Direct Care Counselor (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – February 15, 2017
I truly don't want to fill this section out. There is no money in human services, however I truly was there for my kids. I enjoyed them so much and that is my absolute passion. I would not have left if I did not need to.

The job is not easy, everyday is a challenge, however this is what makes the work I do so rewarding. I can't think of another agency I would rather be working!

Case Manager (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – June 15, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job is the clients. It is most rewarding for me when a client is discharged and say thank you, or when a client leaves our program, matures and comes back and says thank you, or that they appreciate the structure and support i provided because it allowed them to be a success story.
Program Counselor/Manager (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – June 3, 2015
Management will throw you beneath a moving bus quick and fast if it means that they will have to explain something you did incorrectly. There is no loyalty to employees, the pay is very low for the things that they require of you to maintain employment and I feel as though there is no love for the clients that they acquire. I stood at this position for 13 plus years and this is by far the worst job I ever had. Due to them I have refrain from working in the field for eternally.
helping change young youths lives for the better
Management is unorganized, corrupted and is unfair
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – February 3, 2015
This place is a joke ! Do not come to work here, you will end up finding a new job! The only good thing about this job are the case managers and the front desk lady. They do not work as a team, they just point the finger at the next person. The clinician are nice, case managers are cute and case workers are excellent. PAY what pay? they pay pennies....you get more working at burger king! You get an on call phone for 7 days, it was the demons phone to the max! I rather get hit by a car 10 times. People call out for shifts everyday and the phone is off the hook all night long while your on call.
