Therapist Intern (Current Employee) – Pomona, CA – May 19, 2018
Residential treatment center that focuses on assisting walk-in and court ordered (LA County Drug Court and DCFS cases). Employees get along great. Some management is amazing to work for and others can be unorganized and demeaning. Some days are calm and go smoothly and other days can resemble working in the county jail. The program focuses not only on substance abuse treatment, but also in assisting women reunite with their children and assist in resources to help the clients with their criminal cases.

You get to help people that really need the help and this is very rewarding. It's awesome, the best place ever. The supervisors always have your back. They use cutting edge treatments and the doctor there is super cool and helpful. Most of the staff get along really well with each other. The clients are usually grateful for the help they get at Prototypes.

Overnight Counselor (Current Employee) – Oxnard, CA – August 25, 2017
Prototypes is a great facility with caring staff the issue is that it is understaffed and underpaid. With full capacity of 58 women plus their children, there just isn't enough staff to properly care for those in crisis.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – August 3, 2017
Wonderful company as in what their values and mission is. Working with those who have open cases with DCFS was hard and having your reports play a factor in them getting their children back was the hardest part. Therefore it lays heavy on you if you have children to go home too. Not worth the pay. Sometimes I had to babysit kids due to lack of staff or cook meals because no staff. Budget cuts I guess.

I enjoyed working with the staff and learning a lot about mental health. The coworkers were supportive of each other. I learned a lot about myself in working solely with adults. I learned I can make a difference and was supported through the process.

Prototypes was a wonderful to place to work. Everyone was client centered and focused on the needs of the client.
