Christian Horizons is a great organization to work for and be challenged. The managers are super supportive and knowledgeable. The people we serve are wonderful and appreciative. The staff in the homes are heroes who go above and beyond.
Great leadership and opportunities.
Tough work sometimes.
Fast paced, never the same day twice, invests in their employees. It was a strong Christian organization that I believe has changed over the last few years with Human Rights Laws etc still maintained culture of dedication and advocacy for folks with a developmental disability.
Vision, dedicated to ppl with dev disabilities
I give CH a favorable rating. I was supported well by managers throughout my time there. Coworkers were positive and.collaborative. All in all this was a great place to work. The only downside I can think of.is working holidays and some.night shifts.
Good pay, great benefits, collaborative colleagues, positive work environment
Work some holidays, sometimes.overnight shifts

Great job. Enjoyed my experience here over 15years. I only knew this place and never wanted to leave. Now that I am employed elsewhere, I can see all the issues that I never noted before. Don’t be fooled by I experience. Great starting position but not a great long term option. They will throw you away when it suits them.
This is not the place for anyone wanting a meaningful career. In my experience you see your manager once every 6 months. Your manager is the only one with the power to make meaningful changes to the home/work environment and if their never around, it makes having a useful manager impossible. When a client gets to be “to much” their solution is to take them out for a fun “day trip” and at the end of the trip, they drop them off at their new home without any warning or conversation. I’ve watched this happen multiple times and it’s heartbreaking each and every time. Coworkers can harass you and cause issues between team members with zero consequence. My experience in this company was appalling. Despite growing very fond of many of my coworkers and clients, the work environment and how management handles clients is very sad and defeating. I would highly recommend Not applying to this company.
Clients and costaff can be great
Management is a joke
I loved the people we supported and many of my colleagues, but my supervisor made working there untenable.Christian Horizons took over an existing agency. This process was mishandled to the extent that the community deeply resents the heavy-handed way Christian Horizons has treated long-term employees.Christian Horizons brought in an ED from Ontario with cringe-worthy social skills.
The people we served.
Mettle of supervisory staff

Hello, I believe you've reviewed the Canadian-based Christian Horizons on the U.S.-based Christian Horizon's page. We are two completely different organizations with the same name. If I'm mistaken, however, I'd like very much to talk to you. Please call me at (314) 587-7921. Sincerely,Barbara KellyChristian HorizonsSt Louis, Missouri (US)
Have been with CH for over a year now. Have seen some good and bad as in every workplace. What CH excels at and it helps with their employment standards is that they have a focus on the clients and realize that it is the front-line staff that serves the client. I won't say the management is perfect, but you at least feel that we are all working toward the same goal. Better pay would be nice, but you leave work feeling appreciated by both the clients and your managers... and you can't put a price on that.
Job satisfaction, benefits
Sometimes chaotic, managers are often "bungee bosses"
A whole lot of family members all assigned under the same manager really not sure how or why this is allowed.. All of these family members are on great terms with the manager and get exceptional treatment compared to other employees who are not close with the manager personally. The manager will scold you the way A parent would scold a small child that said something ridiculous, we are all grown adults here and to keep things professional by telling your employee what they could have done better in a positive way is not the hardest thing to do. It is a very toxic work environment with the manager favouring a select few. The pay could be a lot better since you have to deal with clients on a wide spectrum of disorders a lot of them being behavioral issues. You get to hear clients curse you out and treat you terribly daily as well as your manager and the select few that they like. The select few that the manager likes somehow are able to get better schedules, vacation days will be more of a priority than your vacation days, and this attitude that they think they're better than you in every way. Team meetings are the most unproductive waste of time thing that can happen, and once again the select few that are on the good side of the manager come out guns blazing calling out people they don't like about something they could have done better. Insanely crazy how this "family" can make the work environment feel so toxic with their arrogant attitude. The one individual who schedules staff also happens to have a daughter that works under the same manager which is a definite - plus...
Lots of free Time
Horrible management, Untrustworthy coworkers, Low wage
I worked part time at CH. I loved the experience. There was a learning curve for me to work with adults that needed assistance with their daily living. My time was spent making sure that the living environment was clean and safe. My interaction with the supported individuals was rewarding to me. I played cards, went for walks, sat and listened, and lead conversations. The most difficult task at times was reading the mood of an adult who had limited capabilities of communicating. There was never a day that I did not want to take my shift. I enjoyed the whole experience.
Loved learning about the supported individuals.
Knowing the procedures for all supported individuals as their needs continued to change.
The supervisors determine your future and happiness. Meaning don’t go there to expect you will get an internal job posting easily. They are racial meaning they will hire their own if you are a foreigner and you will be the one to train. The supervisors ignore to pick up their phones and make the internal interview difficult for someone who already works there.
I love the team work
Supervisors are not friendly to foreigners
CH is a great place to work! It’s well managed and the work is meaningful, however I don’t feel like I’m paid enough. The job can be stressful and emotionally draining and when I started there were two staff on a LOA due to stress. At CH you do not need to have a DSW or PSW or a diploma in a related field. This allows them to pay you less than other organizations in developmental services . I have a 36 hour per week contract and more than one of my pay checks go towards rent for my one bedroom apartment. I need to find a second job to make sure I’m not just scraping by. One
Not a good place to work. Management is terrible, treat employees badly, never know if your stuck for a double.shifts. They tell you last minute appointments.
People supported were great to work with
Glad to have resigned
There is rotational schedules that are challenging for people. The frontline workers' voices are not heard when making decisions for the people supported or changes in the program. Decisions are just made and we are told to follow it. Individuals are not always included in any change of plan reflecting their life. Sexism, discrimination and abuse happen in the organization. Making a report it is treated according to how the manager feels fit. The decision is biased because it is based on the level of the friendship the manager has with the accused. If you ever have an interest in growing in the organization (eg: working at head office, then good luck). The majority of the staff working at the head office is related or really close friends that's how you get a position there. Equal opportunity is not an option at head office. It's one messy organization.
Seemingly hard to actually get a job here, seemed to take forever to interview, offer, accept, and start my position. Relatively relaxed environment once I was assigned a location and started. Management was fairly supportive when needed.
Christian horizons is a great company to work for they care about the people who work for them as much as the people they support. They have a great benefit package and wages are comparable to other companies.
