After being taught when hired that the participants all have choices seem to not have any. The individuals are supposed to be given choices when it comes to where they would like to go for recreation or where they would like to work but instead are handed a monthly calendar of the trips there are to go on and a site they have no choice but to work in. They go bowling often in which most are either tired of it or don't like to go. Management and supervisors seem to play by favoritism. There are drivers that I would question and I would give random drug testing to everyone hired. That includes management, supervisors and staff. Where is the fairness within staff and participants? I love each and every individual the same and I wish they were given options.

As a former direct care worker at the Guild, and one who has worked elsewhere in the field, I can draw some meaningful comparisons between the care provided at the Guild and in some other places. I am truly impressed by how caring staff are and about the diversity of services and activities available to the individuals served there. Two of the reviewers (most likely disgruntled former employees who left on bad terms) seem to have a problem with bowling. What about swimming, special olympics, shopping trips to the mall, ball games, other sporting events, plays, movies, Arts & Crafts, Men's Club, vacations to Disney, etc. The people I worked with had busier social calendars than I did. As far as management, I had a really good manager, who worked just as hard as everyone else did. That seemed to me to be the norm around there. If I had a disabled family member, I'd want them at the Guild

My autistic son joined the Guild in February. He has truly flourished in this loving and warm environment.The staff is attentive, kind and caring. They offer support to families and are never too busy to help with any problems or concerns we have as parents. My son enjoys the different job sites and activities and has increased his language and socialization skills more than I dreamed possible, in a very short time.Should anything happen to myself or my husband, I would be totally comfortable leaving my son in their care.

I do not agree with the second & third negative reviews.I used to work at the Guild as a PAT/Counselor in the workshop. I think the guild is a wonderful organization and if I had a child with disabilities would definitely send him/her there.I have referred people to the Guild knowing with confidence their child will be well serviced.The facility is extremely well kept,the clients safety is well monitored.The curriculum's well structured, however can be individualized if necessary.The staff is very caring and overall I have seen my clients enjoy themselves throughout the workday and leave the day with a smile on their faces.It is not only a learning environment with adjunct programs that make the workday fun but a second family to the clients who attend.The guild has many services to offer in the Workshop,Residences,Day Training and other programs.I definitely recommend that parents look into them.

used to work there, the people were not friendly often did not care about the clients, mgt only looked after themselves, and pushed all work on counselors. some clients were left in poor condition and left in poor hygiene. if i had a loved one who needed their services i would not bring them to the guild. the idea of bringing loved ones to these places is to have a better life, anyone could go bowling and most clients dont like the repetitiveness. not to discourage anyone but rather an eye opener

I do not share the same opinion as the first reviewer. First of all the direct-care staff appears to be of the lowest dona miter, and mgmt generally does not appear to have more than a associates degree. Furthermore, even though they do offer various amount of activities, attending bowling on a weekly basis FOR LIFE does not exactly appeal to me.

This is a quality treatment center. The staff is overall warm and friendly. Everyone is very attentive to the needs of the students. They hold fun activities during the week, including bowling, trips to the park (if weather permits), and movie days. Also during the holidays they have parties and specialy events. If you have an exceptional loved one, this is a great treatment center for them. They have an on-staff nurse as well.
