Not a positive work environment - Unstable job security and programming due to funding
Executive Project Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 1, 2018
Leadership seems to mismanage funds which leads to program cuts and positions being constantly cut and employees outside of leadership payed in pennies and treated like trash. But the work of the organization is GREAT! and the mission and organization have been undergoing change.
Crisis Stabilization Counselor (Former Employee) – Pleasant Hill, CA – May 16, 2018
Work was tough but worthwhile for at risk youth who need caring dedicated people in their lives. Culture was somewhat family like. Company very susceptible to politics and funding for services for SED youth.
OFFICE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 13, 2018
Being a part of the counseling department for a little over 10 years was very rewarding for me. I was able to establish a great working relationship with both staff members as well as clients that came in for service.
I miss this kind of work and wish I can find another agency that offers the services that families first does.
Volunteer/Affiliations (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 7, 2018
Great environment where one could thrive and be able to put one's ideas to practice. I was able to incorporate some of my own ideas pulled from books or other courses I took and I felt like that overall made lessons more full and well rounded to the student's needs.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Hendersonville, NC – November 21, 2017
During this time I worked self employed but worked with a consulting group WNCBEST who created and managed ABA programs for clients. I worked with two families one directly meaning they paid solely for my services and another family that paid partial for my services and the remaining through Families First. The arrangement was to help the client with the cost of my services as they had twins that both received therapy. The three children and their families that I worked with during this time were wonderful to work for and with. Some of my daily responsibilities included preparation for daily activity and therapy, prep for data collection and notes, shadowing client in school setting, in home therapy, community outings, accompaning to other therapy or services, maintaining daily program information, data, and management, communicating with other therapists, parent, consultant, and also create separate notes and data for Families First per their requirements.
