Amazing cause and great place to work
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Edmonton, AB21 août 2019
AdaptAbilities is all about making a difference - it's an amazing cause - helping families with children/youth/young adults with special needs. The atmosphere is a great mix of hard work/focus and fun/friendship. The CEO works hard to make a difference - and she is a great leader. The atmosphere is very positive - staff actually care about each other and are happy to collaborate and support one another.
Points positifs
An organization that's moving forward, seeking to continuously improve in every area
Points négatifs
Though we have well qualified, caring staff - we need to hire more licensed practitioners - e.g., Occupational Therapists - we're working on it!

Needed Therapy After Leaving
Respite Care Specialist (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB23 septembre 2018
AdaptAbilities is a good opportunity if you want to go into Social Services or Education. Those of you going into Social Work at MacEwan or UofC should work here at least for a few months. However, BE WARNED: many of the participants that I worked with were very toxic and physically abusive, and there was NOTHING that I could do about it but to tough it out.

That said, I don't believe AdaptAbilities has the resources to provide the support that a lot of their participants require. I've seen a couple participants develop behaviours based on trauma they endured in their time there.

If anything, work their summer camps. Do not stick around after that. You're better off washing dishes.
Points positifs
Opportunity to form meaningful relationships with participants, Entry-level position that looks great on a resume for social services and education, Management are supportive and will debrief with you when an incident happens, Health care plan includes dental as well as COUNSELLING which you will need.
Points négatifs
YOU. WILL. GET. HURT. Toxic participants are very physically abusive, and AdaptAbilities simply does NOT have the resources to fully support many of its participants.

Pretty good.

Great time working with the kids. Left because the manager at the time was not doing what I felt was in the kid's best interest. Things seem to be better now. Great opportunity to work with kids if you are planning on doing that career-wise.

Review
Fund Development Officer (Employé actuel) –  Edmonton, AB2 avril 2018
There is very little fundraising culture within the organization itself. Expectations in all levels of the organization far exceed the job requirements.

Corrupt nonprofit that does not care about the people supported
Front Line Staff (Employé actuel) –  Edmonton, AB6 février 2018
The culture of this organization is dreary at best. Front line staff are overworked and underpaid and management seems to make decisions willy nilly without thinking about the consequences. Management is too far disconnected from what really matters and just make people's lives more difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to support people with special needs in a meaningful way. The least enjoyable part is that no one cares that you are doing it.

Great work supporting people but terrible office and management
Respite Care Specialist (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB7 janvier 2018
The programs are good and supporting people who have disabilities is great, but the company is bogged down by poor organization and communication.

Scheduling for staff is all over the place and the ratio sheet often conflicts with the scheduled hours. It’s difficult to know when you are working or who you are working with. You also need to calculate your hours and cross check very carefully!

Communication from top down is lacking and confusing. New expectations and the communication of changes and other news is often missed or told in broken pieces.

Finally, training is hit or miss. Most times someone is thrown in without much orientation.
Points positifs
Rewarding and worthwhile work
Points négatifs
Disorganization and poor communication

Fun and fast paced
Relief Care Specialist (Employé actuel) –  Edmonton, AB20 mars 2017
Kind staff, makes you feel great about what you are doing. Summer camps are a bit hectic and should be overstaffed in my opinion, especially for the activities that everyone takes part in.
Points positifs
Rewarding job
Points négatifs
Long staff meetings, about the same stuff.

A fun loving and caring place for everyone to enjoy.
Volunteer (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB8 juin 2016
In grade six, I became friends with someone that through our friendship we are still friends, heck, we're family, and always will be. Thanks to AdaptAbilities, we are happy.
