Provided Stability in a counseling career

Lack of growth potential, but overall enjoyed working there. It has a team feel and that helps in working together to collaborate on the care that you give to the children in your care.
Pros
Team approach

Worst Placement for Children/ Worst Place to Work
House Parent (Former Employee) –  Deltona, FLJanuary 1, 2018
This is hands down the worst place I have ever had the misfortune of working for. This place has a cult culture and the administration is extremely judgmental! They accused my husband and I of being atheists because I sat down once during a church service because I have several medical issues (which they were aware of prior to hiring us). They expect a lot from their house parents for slave wages. You work long hours, you have meetings/trainings to attend, you have to transport the children to and from scheduled activities, you have to do a lot of paperwork daily for each child place in your home, you have to deal with whatever issues the children may bring to the home or may be dealing with that day, and of course you have to run the home like you would run any home (cook, clean, keep routines, etc). The company does not seem to value individuality and expect their staff to be "like minded". My husband and I have worked with at risk youth for well over 15 years and were foster parents for children with severe behavior problems with multiple failed placements and our success rate was extremely high for assisting these children with finding forever families. Again, we could not stomach this place at all!
Pros
Working with the children, Some of the training was awesome/beneficial like the Life Space Crisis Intervention training
Cons
The Moral conflict that comes with working here, Hard work-little pay, "Cult culture", Judgmental/incompetent management, Lack of compassion for employees and children by administration

Terrible company main interest is money from Doners
House parent (Former Employee) –  Madison FloridaNovember 13, 2017
Management is very poor won't listen or take advise. Very long working hours without support with kids who need higher levels of care. Management always encourages you to lie to doners about Day to day activities. They are more concerned about raising money rather than what's best for staff and children. If your one of their favorite people you may be ok until you disagree with them. They have a very hard time keeping good staff because of the way management treats staff.

Horrible work place
Residential Child Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  FloridaNovember 6, 2017
FMCH is the worst place to work as the management are unprofessional liars. The children it is sad as they put DJJ kids that are drug and predators with little children. It is so sad and as a good human being you could not see it or want to work in that environment. It has no team players and they hide and use the Church which is horrible. Our world is in trouble but it is places like this that only make money from children who need help and others who should be in jail. Stay away!
Pros
Trying to save children but impossible.
Cons
Horrible bunch of liars and money making for themselves.

Mission driven organization
Direct Care Worker (Current Employee) –  Enterprise, FLAugust 18, 2017
Great place to work, mission is sound. Changes are occurring within the culture. New leadership, new energy. Seems to care about the total agency. The hardest part of the job is hearing the tragic life stories from the youth.
Cons
Stressful field.

Great start but lacking improvement
Direct Care Staff Member (Current Employee) –  FloridaAugust 2, 2017
As with many new job opportunities FUMCH offers quite a bit. They have full and part time openings with an array of benefits. In the time I have worked there I have seen a decline in the compensation package leaning toward a more modest offering. They do still have full time insurance, retirement matching and paid vacation/sick time (that is if you can ever schedule it off.) The opportunity for a pay increase when offered (not always available) has been a variable 1% -3% and often based on review by a supervisor with little to no direct contact throughout the year. The work environment provides a higher stress for employees which leads to turnovers with working to cover gaps until management can scramble to find replacements or restructure to eliminate openings all together. It seems to be always behind the curve with staffing. This appears to be systemic of the organization as much of the leadership being newly hired (within 3-5 years) has a turnover being about as high as with the direct care staff. Over all this could be a great place to work although short term as the inconsistencies with management, staffing problems and lowering compensation keeps it from reaching its true potential.

good employer
Child and Family Therapist (Current Employee) –  Enterprise, FLJune 23, 2016
can be stressful and is quick paced. Never a dull moment. Kids are sometimes aggressive but normally are typical kids who have been abused or neglected. Seeing behavior changes in residents is best part of the job and seeing the residents find permanence either with parents or adoption is satisfying.
Pros
beautiful campus
Cons
lots of paperwork

Youth Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Enterprise, FLJuly 1, 2015
Management SUCKS! Administration SUCKS! It is a church based faith organization however they do not adhere to their own rules or policies and procedures. It's an open door policy company but not really. If you have any grievance concerns management on up to the administration really does NOTHING about the situation at hand.
Pros

management, at risk youth, administration

Perfect place to work if you are able to work with at the low wages;
Residential Child Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  FLJune 16, 2015
The job is demanding of your time which is understandable, however there are conditions that overwhelm you. Depending on the position you are in you will literally have to place your life on hold; this may be due in part to burnout/ongoing short staffing/and a lot of requirements in the position. Training is readily available to staff. Colleagues must learn to work together in order to effectively do each individual job. There is a disconnect between management and staff for some reason.
Pros
Playing an active and important role in the healing of children
Cons
Not enough pay

Good place for experience but not long-term career
Admin Specialist to VP of Residential Care (Former Employee) –  FLDecember 8, 2014
FUMCH is an organization where job security is low. Management has a difficult time making decisions and carrying through with those decisions. New Management has laid off older employees both male and female, therefore, don't expect loyalty from this organization. Good place to gain experience but not a long term job.
