Treatment Coordinator (Current Employee) – Matteson, IL – May 22, 2014
National Youth Advocate at one time was very supportive of its employees. NYAP no longer shows that type of support. NYAP speaks upon, children are the focus and mission of the agency. However, that thinking has changed. NYAP is more focused on the bottom line of money. Children are ill matched with foster parents which causes frequent placement disruptions. Children are brought into the program like cattle. Case loads are extremely high which places the workers not to be in compliance with DCFS. Adminstration does not listen to the concerns voiced by the workers. NYAP is no longer a place to work that one is able to grow.
Management let an employee run the show even though her experience was limited to only NYAP. This employee talked about other co-workers and was allowed to go through other employees desk and present management with her version and caused other employees their jobs.
