“This is a place for growth in multiple avenues.."Mr. G.
“I like how cozy the environment is. It allows for deep processing and it is easy for staff to learn the residents, and the residents to establish healthy relationships with such mentors. The best part of working here is working with the residents. With every interaction, you learn something new that heightens one’s experience, both professionally and therapeutically
"This program allows teenage boys to develop multiple tools to deal with the situations that have derailed their lives thus far while also preparing them for future events. As a member of the floor staff, I’m able to directly affect what they learn and take away. I enjoy being a person that these guys can come to for help and teach them the right way to be so that when they leave they don’t end up in places like this again." Mr. H.
“...I have the privilege of helping our residents reach their greatest potential while in our Directive Therapy program. I have learned so much during my tenure here. It is recommended that one should choose a career in which they will be excited each and every day, and I am proud to say, I made the right choice.
I love it here!"
"I have been employed here for two years. It has been a pleasure and opportunity being able to work with the residents and see them grow and become better individuals.
