I going to feel good, because I like to serve people and I believe that every person must have health and home.

Raises are annually in extremely small increments. It only happens at the 6 month mark because that's when the probation period is over. After that, it will be annually. Please note that when you first start at the company, you will not be paid for ONE WHOLE MONTH..and you will only get half of that month's earnings. LAHSA holds the other half (and no it's not in an interest barring account) until you quit or get terminated. So plan accordingly if you plan to work there.

Is not about ending it because it's been part of our society's too long.the goal is to introduce motivated people that want to be part of a change instead of having the job to make money.when you care is a diffetent strategy.the government wants to corner or isolate the people as if they have some illness.we need to help them do a job that they feel they can achieve to their abilities you can't change what they refuse to deal with.

I feel a bit discouraged when I go in. Myself and a few others there are doers! We want and can get things done, but once you run your solution by the current leadership... forget it! They either don't think its important or want to continue to "discuss" it over time (which is code word for never gonna happen). Absolutely no reason for all of the delays and bureaucracy.

Ironically, they don't have one!!! Some of us have brought this up as one department's job is to drive company vehicles to assist and transport the homeless. The organization has done or said nothing about reports of some employees coming to work after smoking or even smoking on breaks. Most driving jobs give random drug tests, but LAHSA is in the process of being unionized so they are afraid to do anything. Unfortunately, they will wait until something bad happens... and only of it makes the news, something will be done.
