In my opinion, I would give a -10 for Community Vision if that was an option. What CV's informational pamphlets and news articles say about this organization is wonderful. I only wish it were. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is to personally experience dealing with the organization. My child is in the program and we have been trying to get problems resolved for years. It's a whole different world than what the pamphlets and news articles say.
They really dropped the ball on follow up treatment. They had doctor instructions but did not follow them. No cold therapy for 5 days because they did not know how to hook it up. They do not respond quickly to calls which led to a bladder infection. They give medications on an empty stomach causing nausea and vomiting. Some of the staff seems very nice and helpful but I can not recommend this place.
Terrible! They don't care about the clients all! This is a for-profit business and they run it like one. Many programs don't have the funding to provide happy, healthy, safe environments. No money for food, activities, hygiene products or ISPs goals. It takes weeks to fix equipment such as dishwashers, or washing machines or sinks. Under pay their employees for the amount of work and harassment they receive from upper management. Can't keep employees, so they are always under staffed, making it dangerous for the individual’s they provide care for. Hardly follows OARS laws, some houses in Multnomah should be shut down, or they need to fire the people in charge of them. Everyday I pray for the individual’s involved with this company.
I live at Roselyn Apartments which is owned by Northwest Housing Alternatives. As a gay man I want to say Northwest Housing Alternatives is NOT LGBT friendly.
