In-Home Outreach Counselor (intern) (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – April 17, 2017
As an IHOC you have the ability to make your own schedule and provide various interventions with families. This place did not offer too much structure which can be good if you 1) have your own structure 2) need to learn how to be more structured. You learn more of an understanding of DCFS.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – December 23, 2014
a typical day at strength united consists of informing survivors of unfortunate crimes of the support they have available to them. What I personally have overcome many obstacle in working with victims of these crimes. The management is supportive, and always available. my co-workers are very passionate, and supportive. The hardest part of the job is that everyone does not want the help offered to them. The most enjoyable part of the job, is working side by side with professionals like, Police Officers, and Marriage and Family Therapists
the support i receive from the supervisors.
I wish that this was my career, and I was being paid.

Receiving calls of victims and offer them the support needed. I have learned to feel compassion and to be more understanding of victims of sexually assault and domestic violence. My supervisors are very nice and helpful.
