“Working with families, seeing real change, focus on relationships, putting trauma informed care into practice, supervisor seems to care, flexible schedule” – Re: KEEP Program

“I worked at Maple Star part-time for more than a year. Pay is decent (especially if you sign-up for on-call shifts, as the stipends add up!) and the supervisors allow you to work fairly autonomously. Most supervisors are adamant that you take your designated mental health days, too! Case management roles are always difficult and complex, but the 30-day intensive program feels more sustainable.” – Re: KEEP Program
