I love it. Still work there. Gives you the training you need to help patients during a difficult time and situation. The training and education opportunities are endless.

There are a lot of great things about Safe Harbor, but a lot of room for improvement. The agency touts that it takes care of its employees, but actually does very little to do so. Understandably, social work is an underpaying field, and such is the case with Safe Harbor. But for the workload, the pay is dismal. The way grants are distributed made it so some advocates had a 60-70 client load while others only had 15. Employees are given 2 wellness hours per month, but the parameters for what these can be used for are quite strict which can make the time difficult to use. Travel is seldom reimbursed, and with the agency having two campuses, travel is nearly inevitable. Middle management was wonderful; however, upper management was inaccessible. My team really only heard from her when we were doing something wrong, which harmed morale significantly. Most of the time it felt as though the wellbeing of the advocates came second to saving face and preserving the image of the agency. My supervisor was always so supportive of their team; however, it was obvious the undue pressure that middle management was under impacted their day-to-day functioning as well. Safe Harbor only offers unpaid lunch breaks and is even very stingy about the 15 minute breaks that employees are legally allowed to take. There is little opportunity for advancement and the pay raises are miniscule. I learned quickly that the way to share ideas and advocate for change is not to do it; there is always some grant or political reason it can't be done. Throughout my time there it became obvious that "problem children" are taken care of quickly and effectively, sometimes making us fear for our own jobs. Safe Harbor has all the makings of a hallmark anti-violence agency, but its practices are severely lacking. If it truly cares about the victims and survivors of Davis County, like it says it does, it would take better care of its staff so that they have the capacity to serve the clients. I learned a lot about case management and direct client services there and made some lifelong friends, but ultimately had to leave because I was so burned out and the agency does very little to mitigate that. I'm not saying don't work here, but definitely take everything with a grain of salt and have your own self-care and wellness plans in place.

Safe Harbor had it's pro's and con's. They really wanted to implement having a balanced job/work life so you would not get so burnout on all of the caseload you would have. They also made it a priority that we took care of ourselves the best we could due to burnout. It was easy to ask for day's off at LPC, even if you are honest and said that you needed a mental health day they were really good about giving it to you. Although, there are some con's. I was eventually notified, since they are funded by grants, that mine was expiring, so my job position would dissolve (I guess this happens quite frequently). They said maybe there would be a job opening for me but they were not sure. I got my old job back and put in my two weeks because I did not want to wait and find out at the last moment to see if I had a job still or not. Once you put in your two weeks you can't use your PTO or Sick leave. I also saw how they treated some of their employee's and it put a bad taste in my mouth even though I did not get the treatment first hand. I feel like if you are a hard worker and do your part they will work with you the best they can. Also, I feel like you have to have a certain personality to work there and to fit in with others, but that may be just me.

Trauma informed and open to everyone! Wonderful management and training. I learned more in the short time I was with them than the last 3 years of work. The only thing that should improve is compensation. You are dealing with vicarious trauma and stress constantly.
