“What do you most appreciate about your work at Centerpoint?”

  • “The people I work with, both staff and students”
  • “The opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students”
  • “how supportive, friendly and helpful the staff are (and the best supervisors ever)”

  • “The staff culture at Centerpoint – the people around me, the openness, the energy”
  • “The staff, the freedom, the positivity – it’s just awesome that this place exists!”
  • “The amazing staff, support, and positive attitude within and throughout the organization”
  • “Working with these kids and families, and working with an awesome, incredible team of
  • professionals”
  • “the energy and helpfulness that all staff bring”
  • “The fact that the mission statement is something that staff and leadership genuinely believe in and that there is thoughtful, dynamic, and relevant support to help staff improve and continue to grow”

Great programming, great services, and great supports – but above all else, it’s about great staff.
