Hear What Our Employees Have to Say

Julie_%282%29.JPG“We all learn and grow together, every day.”
It is an absolute pleasure and honor to support the people I work with. We participate in community activities like Meals on Wheels. We all get great satisfaction out of helping others. We’ve become a family. When the individuals leave at the end of the day, they’ll turn around and ask if they’ll see me tomorrow. Even after a very frustrating day, it makes it all worth it. You know they love you, and I love them.  
-- Julie C, Day Habilitation Assistant, 11 years

I love being here and enjoy, with all my heart, working with the seniors. They look forward to our activities, which include cooking groups, a self-advocacy group, with whom we went to a conference in Albany. They put on theatrical shows, among other things. At the end of the day, they go home happy and look forward to coming back to program the next day. Our staff work as a team, providing each other support in order to ensure our program best meets the goals of the people we support.   
-- Yuderka A, Habilitation Specialist/Seniors Program

I started with Arc as a Direct Support Professional, with little experience in the field and was soon promoted to Assistant Manager. However, working directly with the people we serve and with the help, support and guidance of my supervisors and coworkers I have gained much experience over the years. I was recently promoted to Residence Manager. I enjoy making a difference in the lives of the people we serve. I hope to continue doing so for many more years to come.

The work at Arco f Rockland is very rewarding. The people we support are very receptive to everything I have to offer. We are helping them be independent and productive. We get them out into the community to pursue their goals, including taking college courses. We all work together as a team. Management is also very supportive and works to ensure that I have the tools I need to do my job to the best of my ability. We share a common purpose here. Recently after coming back from vacation, I had the feeling I was coming home.

Being a teacher at Prime Time for Kids is the best job. I come to work everyday with a smile on my face knowing that I am going to help my students achieve their goals. Prime Time has wonderful, creative, caring staff who are supportive of each other which creates a fun working environment. We have an administrative team that supports the staff and continues to empower employees to do their best. Prime Time is a great place to work and learn, I am so happy to be a part of this amazing school.
