“Every day is a new challenge and a new opportunity to make an impact on the lives of someone else. I get to see first-hand how the services at Vera French make a difference.”
At the start of each day, it’s like being at my job for the first time. I never know what each day will bring. At the end of the day, I know I made a difference. “
“I’m constantly learning! Each new challenge is an opportunity for professional growth and I love my co-workers.”
“I know that VF makes a difference in the community and goes above and beyond to help people.”
Mental Health Month
May is Mental Health Month! Every year, Vera French celebrates Mental Health Month with various themes and events. Some past themes have been: Self-Care, Advocating for Clients, Animal Companionship and Gut-Brain Connection.
Employee Well-Being Fair
2020 will hold the 3rd Annual Vera French Employee Well-Being Fair! Held in June, this event has different community vendors from fitness to eating healthy to financial wellness.
Along with Mental Health Month and our Employee Well-Being Fair, there are many other events held throughout the year. Potlucks are held for Social Work Month, Nurse’s Week, Administrative Professional Day and we’ve held one for MLB Opening Day! The Vera French Foundation holds two events that Vera French employees are welcome to attend: Through My Eyes and the Gala.
At Vera French, every employee’s suggestions are welcomed and there are many committees that staff are encouraged to join. From planning the Holiday Party to brainstorming ideas for new trainings, employees can join a committee and implement new ideas.
Staff Development is very important to Vera French. There are many trainings that are hosted by Vera French that encourage the development of skills and the continued education of our staff. Approximately once a month, a Lunch & Learn is held for employees to come eat their lunch and learn about a program, organization, or other information that is relevant to them and their clients.
