Rewarding place to work at
Friendly atmosphere, It can be stressful at times as we serve the marginal clientele in the community. Most people that work are relatively friendly. The management can sometimes unsupportive and the upper management can be unreachable at times. Overall the place is a good place to work.

Poor Management
A lack of professional boundaries between management and employees. Any concerns fall on dead ears. Management chooses to not address workers concerns

Great Programs - Poor Management
Management often takes a stance based on community perception as opposed to protecting employees, that being said, this organization provides many essential programs and services to local communities and it does feel good to do good and be a part of that.

It was ok
It was an ok place to work. For a non-profit organization, they don't really seem to care much about the employees. There has also been a big change in management that has affected this.

Great place to work
Everything about this non-profit is great. Great work atmosphere. They always make sure to hire minorities so our job atmosphere is always very diverse. We always learn from each other and have learnt to laugh.

Very strong on Supportive Team Work!
There is always someone there to help out in any situation. If they can't answer your question, they will find someone who can and get back to you ASAP.

Management has many years of experience and is hands on, which is helpful should a situation take a turn for the worst.


Workplace culture is diverse. You can learn so much from each other and help out where you know it is needed most. You can also ask for help and know you will get it.


Knowing that at anytime you could be out of a job no matter what.


Working with some of the most amazing individuals in this city!!
Pros
Genuine Open door policy, Supervisor is very easy to talk to
Cons
In this field there is no job security or health benefits

Fun place to learn about different cultures
I worked with a diverse and enthusiastic group of people that really know the meaning of team work. We always leaned one each other for support and feedback without feeling incompetent about our work. The workplace culture was that of support and encouragement; and never letting anyone feel they haven't done their best.
Pros
The people! The team

Fun workplace with great coeworkers.
Adequate training and support was provided to ensure that I was confident in volunteering on the crisis line. In under a year I have learned more skills than I thought possible.

It has been a very fun place to volunteer at, the other volunteers and staff are top notch people and easy to get along with.
Pros
Invaluable training and hands-on learning.
Cons
Sometimes difficult material to deal with from the callers.

No authenticity
Working for a company that doesn't live up to its own Mission, Vision, and Value statements in its treatment of staff is an exercise in frustration.
Management is like an old boys club, with no accountability to front line staff.
