Learning about our team

Learning about our team

Our employees are the heartbeat of our agency. In an organization as large as ours, our employees are as diverse as the positions they occupy. We recently reached out to some of our direct care workers – those who work directly with our clients – to learn more about them. We wanted to get a sense of what their day-to-day work lives are like, but also ask a few more personal questions to get…

Family ties at Matheson

Family ties at Matheson

Even when our youth are no longer living at Ranch Ehrlo, they know they always have a place to return to. No story illustrates the bond between youth and staff better than that of Becki*, who spent five and a half years at Ranch Ehrlo Society in Prince Albert; beginning at Alex Guy House and transitioning to Matheson House where she lived until last month. “Becki is still very much a part…

Looking into the future

Looking into the future

Not many people can predict the future - even if you are the CEO. This week’s blog, guest written by Ranch Ehrlo CEO herself, Andrea Brittin, looks at what she envisions for the agency over the next five years. Looking into the future, I don’t see our organization changing a lot in terms of the types of services that we offer. There will always be a need for residential treatment for some…

A piece of advice

A piece of advice

If you are like me, over the years you have received many pieces of advice. Some good, some bad, most of it was in one ear and out the other. Our direct support workers have many hats –teammates, referees, cheerleaders, chauffeurs, sounding boards, or anything in between. Whatever our clients need, our staff is up to the task of providing it. I thought I would share with them a few pieces…

The unique, innovative, and nationally recognized program was created in 2006 to address the need for intensive in-home service provision to families in need of clinical treatment. The program expanded several times over the years to allow…

The gatekeeper

The gatekeeper

Close to 80 percent of people hired as direct care workers come to the agency through one manager. So I sat down to talk with him about what it takes to work here and what someone might expect when they pick a career at Ranch Ehrlo. *side note* In 2016 Ranch Ehrlo changed its staffing model to reduce the over reliance on casual staff who fill in for staff vacation. They moved to using permanent…

That is especially true for our Treatment Foster Care (TFC) program which serves children and youth, between the ages of six to 15, whose special needs require individualized treatment within a family environment. Family involvement is also one of the six CARE (Children And Residential Experiences: Creating Conditions for Change)…

Why work here

Why work here

Seven years ago, we were first chosen as a top employer in Saskatchewan. We were psyched! The whole agency celebrated, and we took the video camera around to capture some of the staff’s reactions. We asked anyone who wanted to sit down and tell us why they worked at Ranch Ehrlo or to share one of the favourite memories. We weren’t disappointed by the responses. We thought we would go…

Time is not measured by the passing of years, but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves. Over the last eight years, we’ve shared with you a lot about what happens here at Ranch Ehrlo via our blog. There have been many writers and many stories, from Prince Albert to Regina and in plenty of places in between, but today we want to take you back to where it all began – our…
