Youth Support Partner (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 7, 2018
Resources for Human Development was one of the greatest places I have ever worked. My supervisor was extremely amazing, and very empathetic. She was always fair and just, the atmosphere was great loved that place.
One of the areas dealing with $$$$ (Former Employee) – CBO – August 4, 2018
Never thought I'd find lack of caring for staff issue in a place that boasts about their "unity" and open door policy. For years they let a tyrant run the AR area, even when complaints were made. Same for AP at times. Original CEO, COO and her daughter were the best but then things changed. The CAO couldve helped by being honest about issues as he's been around....but did not. They want to grow too fast which leads to things being rushed and done incorrectly. They lost many good people and need to regroup....an honest regroup.
CTI Specialist (Current Employee) – Norristown, PA – August 1, 2018
I enjoyed working at RHD and the environment. I had to look for other employment however due to the pay. RHD is a great company to work for for the first 3 years of your career but does not promote much of an opportunity to advance in position or pay.
SCHOOL THERAPUETIC STAFF (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 16, 2018
Resources for Human Development is a great place to work if making a difference in a child's life is one of your desired accomplishments. I have learned an extremely large amount about how to accomplish this. Management is extremely efficient & open.

House Manager (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 15, 2018
Most importantly a dds job is not supposed to be fun and games! The purpose of a dds job is to improve the life’s of the individual!!!!! The just need warm bodies, worst place to work. Unless you don’t have morals!!!!
Rhd does not improve lives, that’s why the Omaha location residence services has been closed!
TRAINING COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – June 14, 2018
RHD is a good place to work, the people who work there really try to help each other be successful in what they do to support our participants. There is not much room for advancement outside of becoming a Support Coordinator. Management has a tendency to differ on effective ways of doing things which prevents quality implementation of ideas. Raises are few and far between.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – 324 Wister Street – June 1, 2018
A typical day at work entails engaging the participant to want to live a more productive lifestyle. And in doing so , as a Direct Care professional I would always promote their strengths as a starting point for them the want more.
Good entry level job! ( those just coming out of college) looking to start a career in Behavior Health
Behavioral Health Worker (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 31, 2018
The culture is all about "who you know" (Part time workers vs, full time workers) They work the same amount of hours however... part time people are paid by hour and full time workers are salary. The advancement depends on if they higher ups feel you " deserve it". Most workers are over worked and under paid...No yearly paid raise.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Township of Brick, NJ 08723 – May 16, 2018
Resources For Human (RHD) is a 21st century non-profit company, anyone will be happy to work under the RHD umbrella of humanitarian services. If I had the opportunity to work for RHD again, I would gladly do so.
Caregiver (Current Employee) – Nazareth, PA – May 15, 2018
Rhd is a beneficial company to work at. The pay is not great, but if you can deal with less pay for a less stressful life it is worth it. Management is very open and always willing to answer questions. I’ve learned an incredible amount at rhd.
Chief Operating Officer/Treasurer (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 8, 2018
There has always been long process to accomplish needed goals. I have learned a great deal about the Social Service world and the impact that non-profit organizations like RHD has on peoples lives. That is the rewarding part of working at RHD. At this time new leadership is in place and the culture and focus is shifting.
The impact of services to those who are most vulnerable.
Very relaxed and cool if you know how to work with mentally disabled.
Residental Advisor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 7, 2018
Mentally disabled is very hard to work with if you have no experience but you will learn if you have patience and tend to be calm. The clients are sometimes violent and very aggressive but are too much and crazy.
I started my day off working in the office as a administrative assistance greeting visitors and staffs preparing training schedules for staff, processed staff payroll and distributed paychecks to employees, coordinated meetings, ran errand preparing for meetings, food and office supplies. While working in the office I learned the skills as a residential counselor for consumers working part time in different group homes for the same company which I got paid for full time in the office and part time as a residential counselor. I learned how to order and administer medications and checked kardex (medication record). I also have to learned the different training skills such as CPR, first aide, PMT etc.. The hardest part was when I was laid off. I enjoy working with the employees and the consumers participating in there everyday living skills.
