Shelter Worker (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 22 January 2019
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.

Public Legal Education & Information Coordinator (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 25 July 2017
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.

Family Strengthening and Development Counsellor (Former Employee) – Surrey BC – 11 December 2015
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.
Fun, supportive, and rewarding place to Volunteer.
Fraser Health Crisis Line Volunteer (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 1 March 2014
After going through detailed and extensive training on the crisis intervention model, you are mentored and reviewed in the phone room before you are able to become a regular call-taker.
The crisis line is very well run. The program is very organized. Communication between co-workers and staff is excellent and encouraged. A lot of support is available to the call takers at all times.
The hardest part of the job is mastering the crisis intervention model and trusting yourself to know how to handle any call that comes your way. The job is enjoyable because it is very rewarding to help people in crisis and help people develop their coping skills and resourcefulness.
Flexible hours and snacks and coffee and tea always provided during your shift.
Constantly contacted through email or phone for more hours.
