I just left there a few months ago... The staff do their best, but don't always pay attention to what they say and do... While I was there in my cottage alone we lost over 10 staff and went through at least 3 clinicians... A lot of the kids that were there in my cottage got worse than when they went in and made it an unsafe environment for the rest... For those of is who had trauma... It was trigger us. That alone made it harder to complete our own program.. Law enforcements were always at our house. Overall it was a 50/50 experience for me.I trusted a few of the staff enough to be able to communicate my needs and i was okay for the time that I was there.. It was hard not gonna lie , but I made it through. Thank you to the ones who made my stay easier (You know who you are☺????)
Back in the year 2000 the Children's Home of Stockton brought me into their program. When I arrived I was scared, angry and depressed. The staff in the group home was very helpful guided me on the right track to success. Now I have a son and a beautiful fiance with a great full-time job and its all thanks to everyone at the Children's Home of Stockton. Without them I wouldn't be the man I am today. Thank you for everything.
Could be a great place to work and live for the kids if some staff members weren't so worried about their coworkers personal lives and see they are doing their job and worry about that.. But no they rather nitpick and micromanage coworkers because someone doesn't want to be their friend.. get a life we are not here to make friends but to ensure the safety and well being of the children i.e. juveniles..oops I means delinquents
