Great team

Working at the Salvation Army was very rewarding because what I did made a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than me. The team I supported was great to work with. We had good camraderie and were a cohesive team.

Loved my job

I enjoyed working with the staff and clients at the Centre of Hope. The Managers always made sure you felt heard and secure in your job. The clients are the typical street population. Centre of Hope"s focus remains on the safety of the clients while helping the population it serves.

Good place to work

Good place to work, the hardest part for me was the physical labor of the job as I sustained an injury. The benefits were working with the people there, who eventually became my friends.

Great work environment

The office is very active with many church members/volunteers coming and going. Must be able to work with and for the various volunteers on many levels. Usually time driven tasks. The work environment if casual but professional. The administrative assistant is the representative of The Salvation Army as a international organization. You may be their only contact! It is very fulfilling!

My enjoyment as an Addiction Counsellor

I very much enjoy my career choice as an Addiction Counsellor. It has given me the opportunity to share and provide a healthier and productive life for those I have supported. There is a drastic challenge within addictions and mental health, one is putting down your "drug of choice", more challenging is the "life-style"changes that need to be addressed. Unfortunately, there continues to be limited resources- mental health care, suitable housing, withdrawal management supports ( residential or in-home) and a lack of understanding from family,friends and community. A "typical" day at work included supporting those in acute-withdrawals and those seeking treatment for their substance abuse. It involved close monitoring, ensuring appointments and phone calls were addressed in a timely fashion. It also required appropriate advocating and that "client centered" needs were acknowledged . It encompassed one-on-one counselling, adequate nutrition, psycho-educational and recreational sessions as well as an opportunity to engage in physical and volunteer experiences. My most enjoyable experiences as an Addiction Counselor is being invited to ones First Year celebration in sobriety, My most challenging is attending a funeral.

Pros

enjoyed supporting those who were actively reaching out for support.

Cons

staff nonsense and extremely poor management

Giving back environment

Cooking meals for 30 plus people and children. Been a part of something that means so much for people that most of us all take for granite. Working at the nursery, was a job that I wished was permanent.

Great Experience

Was A wonderful place to feel you were making a difference. Just wish that you had a chance to try different stations instead of just sorting cloths. Unless you were friends with Management you stayed in one place and didn't get to rotate any where.
