“As someone who admires non-profit capacity building and sustainability, working with Families In Schools has been great. I’ve had an opportunity to switch to a new career and still take the lead on projects, and I’ve also been a thought partner in various strategic conversations. In my experience, regardless of your level/department, the leaders in this organization create space for everyone to feel valued and honored,” Victory Onyekwere, Employee, Since 2021
“On my first month at FIS, I had to leave the country on bereavement. My supervisor and the organization’s leadership were so understanding that they even provided me with paid leave before my 90-day probation period. Three years later, when I went to graduate school and had to take care of my family, they were supportive, providing me with a flexible schedule and the ability to work remotely. Since I started working at FIS, this organization has been ahead of the curve, supporting staff when they need it the most,” Cynthia Perez, Employee, Since 2013
