Budget Analyst (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – March 17, 2018
Hope Community Resource is probably the best company I have ever worked for. They are understanding in the fact that they understand you have a life outside of work. They treat their employees the same as the treat the individuals they help.
Individual Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Soldotna, AK – February 7, 2018
A typical day at work was never the same! Depending on the individual I would work with that day, would determine what our day had in store. I learned that everyone is beautiful in their own special way. The hardest part of the job was when a medical emergency happened.The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make wonderful bonds with individuals all while caring for their medical needs.
a wide variety of disabilities in a wide age range of kids & adults

this allowed me to travel all over the state of Alaska in both city, town and remote village settings to meet and help people and families with developmental disabilities and the challenges of being in their own communities successfully
Employee Education Specialist (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 1, 2017
This was the most backward place I have ever worked. Pay scales do not exist. The management runs things by threats and mistreatment of employees. There are so many things wrong it would be hard to know where to start. But don't take my word for it. Just ask any ex-employees.
Recreation Programs Supervisor (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – October 18, 2017
I first came to Hope as an international volunteer. I returned many times because I loved what Hope did. I became employed in 2013 and was given an amazing opportunity to be a Supervisor. My director and higher managnment were so supportive of my ideas and investment in the organization. It was like a family and I miss working there every single day. My clients and families were amazing to work with also. I highly recommend others to work with Hope and do not be afraid to share your ideas.
Home Alliance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – October 10, 2017
HCR is my home. There is a special place in my heart for this company that will always be there. I was allowed to grow and allowed to be myself and it reflected in the beautiful people that i supported throughout my career with Hope. I always know there is a place for me there if and or when we return to Alaska and I love that I am and will always be apart of the Hope Community Resources Family.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 1, 2017
I loved my job with Hope specifically working in the art studio with abou 65 different artists who all experience a disability. It was wonderful to help someone create and become an artist by developing their own skills.
Creative expression, making friendships and connections in the community
Not disclosed (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 23, 2017
Horrible management, from direct supervisor to leadership. Turnover is constant because they don't care about staff. Catty, drama filled and unfair treatment to other staff allowed by crooked management.
Working with the clients and watching them reach their personal goals made it worth while
NCMA (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – July 24, 2017
Its great for learning and working with people with mental and physical disabilities. It has brought many challenges. But along with those challenges, there was a lot of learning and growing, not only as an employee but also as a person.
Home Alliance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – June 29, 2017
Typical day consisted of assisting individuals who experienced developmental disabilities with day to day life and activities. Basically, I learned how to be a CNA/medical assistant - a lot of similar job duties. The culture is caring and emotional. The hardest part was watching people struggle. The most enjoyable part was the genuine appreciation received for the services provided.
Not being able to do more than I'm capable of doing.
Manager (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – February 28, 2017

live rent free, help with food money each month
not much freedom, work 18-24 hrs a day, hard to get time off
Assist / instruct supported individuals (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – February 24, 2017
I really loved the diversity of this company. There was folks that were employed with us from Ireland. With Hope there was a lot of knowledge within the company. We had the ability to talk to anyone we needed to. The company was solely about the staff.
