    Pros

    The mission is of the greatest importance. Staff are generally caring and helpful. Experienced senior leadership--know what is important.

    Part time staff do not get enough training and support/feedback. Many staff do not engage those clients who are just hanging around the building--and need to be engaged. Selling off residential properties will refocus services BUT will ultimately allow for less housing options for clients of agency.
