Unorganized and not very professional
Service Delivery Specialist (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – December 4, 2018
I would say that the day-to-day isn't difficult at all. You're basically a House parent there to take care of teenagers. You cook, clean, transport kids to school & appointments & facilitate social emotional groups. I learned the Native American way to include all kids as well as the curriculum for ART (Anger Response Therapy) & Seven Challenges (a drug prevention/intervention/decision making curriculum). I also learned more about therapeutic care, DJJ & the court system for teens. As far as the work culture & hardest part of the job is that you don't really get much support/backing from the company when dealing with violent kids, nor from the lawyers from Legal Aid Society. As long as the company is getting money to house these kids, that's what really matters. I find that things from money, to getting office supplies to getting appropriate staff isn't done in an organized or professional way.
Facilitating groups, free meals & getting to work with some of the kids
No real staff support & no incentive for staff to want to do their best
