This agency exploits their therapists by paying them very low wages, dropping their benefits, not giving any raises, and micromanaging their work/ to the extreme.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

bring in new administrators who can revamp the whole agency. This place has been run by the same dinosaurs who are unable to make any changes for the better.

Although not publicized widely, ISAT completes valuable and very difficult work for the community. It has been an honor to be associated with this team.

I was introduced to ISAT many years ago by having the opportunity to work with the senior board members and staff to organize their benefits for the company employees. I found each person I was exposed to with high integrity and moral values. As my relationship grew over the years, I had a sister who needed therapy along with her six year old daughter having gone through a divorce and sexual illness issues from a spouse. I, along with my family members found the counseling to be of the highest quality and met the needs of my sister and niece. Today my niece is married with two children of her own and my sister has found peace and harmony in her own life. They obviously learned the skills necessary to cope and become an excellent mother, spouse and friend. It doesn't get any better than that. Thanks ISAT!!!!

I have been a volunteer for ISAT for many years and have helped with fundraising. I know that the money raised goes directly to client services. The employees work extremely hard and make lots of sacrifices so the agency can help many families.

I have proudly volunteered my services to ISAT for over 18 years. I am continually amazed at the level of commitment of the staff and other volunteers. Everyone pitches in to stretch limited resources so that more victims of abuse can receive the services they so greatly need. Whether it is working with clients after hours, moving furniture, cleaning the carpet on weekends, painting and repairing walls, etc., everyone happily pitches in.

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

I am a CPA and have been on the board of ISAT for many years. The efficiency of the management team is amazing as they provide counseling services to many people and run a great operation as well. Money donated to ISAT is treated very carefully and used for the benefit of people in need. They have addressed recent changes in the economy with succinctly and have minimized any impact on patient care. Kudos to ISAT.

Observing the impact on families and children in our community.

Continue to partner with as many other strong non profits as possible to garner clients.

ISAT provides counseling services for victims and perpetrators of sex abuse. They also provide counseling for domestic abuse and alcohol and drug abuse. They are a trained professionals with over 20 years of experience. I have been on the board for over 10 years and I have seen the integrity of those that run this non-profit organization. I have also heard from those that have been through the program and the impact it has made on their lives.
