Abode Services is working to end homelessness for families and individuals by developing and leasing homes. Their utilization of the housing first model has proven so successful that they are now approached by local jurisdictions to get involved in their communities. They have a well deserved reputation of providing high quality services and achieving outstanding outcomes that are changing people's lives. I am proud to be associated with them.
i have been a Board member at Abode Services for 13 years. I hjave seen the organization grow over those years, moving from just having an emergency shelter for homeless individuals and families to a multi-dimensional service provider that develops permanent housing for poor people accompanied with supportive services to keep them in their homes. It has received Charity Navigator's top 4 star rating for 6 years in a row. It is seen as the leading organization in the field of supportive housing. It has a growing loyal donor base of local people who believe in its mission to end homelessness. It has a professional staff that is frequently requested to consult with other like agenies nation-wide. It achieves meaningful results for people -- stable housing and connection with resources to assist in maintaining self sufficiency.
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.
Review from Guidestar
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.
