My wife and I were House Parents / employees for the Florida Keys Children's Shelter for 57 months and never met the CEO. During this time 12 other couples were hired then quit, resigned, or dismissed which was unfair to the many kids and teens they were primary caregivers to. We were denied the opportunity to speak to the last three couple hired prior to their employment, which is a travesty because we had to work together, plus share an off-site apartment with one of the couples. For the sake of the foster kids in Monroe County, I am pro-active to bring about Child Welfare Reform in Florida which will hopefully reduce foster kids from living in restrictive group homes and emergency shelters. (We were not volunteers, but no "employee" option from "Your Role" menu.)
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Change "leadership," and limit the term of leadership.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
