“Allendale has provided me with many opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. I am so appreciative of the lessons I have learned and experienced that I have gained from working with our incredible staff and clients. While I am excited for my new journey ahead, it is with a heavy heart that I leave campus today. I have experienced so much joy in learning, growing, connecting, and working here. I truly believe in all that we do and feel blessed to have played a small part in Allendale’s history.”

“I will be forever thankful and mindful of the graciousness, kindness, and giving nature of Allendale. My nearly eight years with Allendale have allowed for me to grow from line staff to Case Specialist, Extern, and currently to the position of Residential Therapist I. Had those working with me not allowed for and seen the potential necessary for the various positions, I am certain that I would not have the experience, knowledge, and clinical skills necessary to move onto the next chapter in my life.”
– Youth Worker, Mental Health Specialist, Case Specialist, Extern, and Therapist
“My time at Allendale has been highly productive. I have been able to accomplish my personal goal of working for a humanitarian cause, but also providing the best quality services to clients. The most I value at Allendale is that there is always room for new ideas and collaboration. With only a year’s experience in child welfare, I was able to transfer from being a Teaching Aide to a Case Specialist, guiding the transitioning process of clients, and working closely with a diverse team. I was able to succeed at Allendale Association because my professional goals were always supported. I’m thankful for the many opportunities that Allendale has given me.”t
