Role: Professional with expertise in this field
Rating: 5 stars  

I am very thankful to Abode Services for giving me the opportunity to work with this organization as part of the SSVF program. I was promoted to lead case worker three months ago. This was very rewarding to me and showed me that I had the trust of my peers and supervisor and upper management to carry out this task of training and supervising fellow co workers. This is a powerful program that assist homeless veterans or at risk of becoming homeless. It was very satisfying to help our veteran to get back on their feet and thrive in the community. This is by far the best program to date in assisting veteran families. From our shelter to the out reach workers in the field have extended a professionalism beyond compare to the veteran and their families.

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

Attempt to get the VA to arrange the grant that would allow us to pay up to one year of a homeless veterans rent until they are on their feet with complete income.

Absolutely horrible place to work. They hire uneducated poor quality managers that dictate rather than lead, unhealthy negative work environments, and you will be surrounded by cut throat co-workers. Zero protection and or development of staff. Organization ran by four women mainly whom are liars, unprofessional, and undermining. HR is a joke and policies are ignored. If you are young, educated, smart, and beautiful stay away, you will be targeted! Best day of my life is when I left and never looked back.

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

Hire new leadership team and retain the best and brightest employees.
