As a five-year veteran of the Goldie B. Floberg Center I can honestly say that no two days are ever alike. My first impression of the organization was one of amazement during my training as a DSP. The training staff was so thorough that by the time I completed the training I felt I could handle any situation with confidence and/or with the knowledge that someone would be there to help if needed.
When you have the opportunity to learn about each client and their special personalities you can’t help but feel a tug at your heartstrings. Before you know it they melt your heart and you feel a very special bond with at least some of the clients. When you are witness to their great strides as they grow and mature you feel a great sense of pride in knowing that you were a part of their accomplishments and are so extremely happy for them. Their smiles can bring tears to your eyes.
Even if you don’t work with the clients directly, you will feel a sense of pride in being a part of this organization. The Center is growing in leaps and bounds in providing programs and opportunities for the clients to enrich their lives and become a real part of the community in which they live. The staff is a pretty tight knit group and really do work together as a team, regardless of the department.
And Goldie Floberg really does care about its employees too.
I’m glad I’m here!
