Many people get injured either physically, or psychologically. When you ask for support from your co workers, you don’t get it. People show up and “do their job” but don’t actually care for the well-being of the children/youth. There’s different “teams” you’re put on as full-time staff. Half the time you don’t get all your full time staff, so you have casuals that come in; and we’re not properly trained, so basically their as an extra body. The company seems like a zoo, because for the short period of time I was their, I was never able to attend my courses that I was supposed to take because there was ALWAYS a crisis happening. When you bring up problems to your manager, nothing gets done about it. Nothing changes with these children. There is absolutely no consistency within the teams, so that makes it hard to develop routines for the kids.
Too many children in one group home. No support.
