For those of you that we work with every day, whether our employees, our customers, or others, thank you very much for your help in making Arbor what it is today. For those of you who may be considering joining us or working with us, we appreciate your interest. After 40 years of being The Source for People Who Care, our team remains as energized by its mission as our founder and earlier team members were, and we’d look forward to your support for and participation in the work we do.
Today, the need for care continues to be significantly greater than the number of caregivers available to provide that care; and compensation rates often don’t match the difficult work. The work can be physically, mentally and emotionally challenging, but ultimately, extremely rewarding. The great majority of caregivers are drawn to this work out of a sense of compassion for individuals and a duty to their communities. We share their goals and are committed to being a part of building sustainable communities wherever we provide our services.
Over the history of Arbor Associates, we have focused on sourcing and placing caregivers who work with some of our communities’ most vulnerable populations: youth and adults with behavioral health challenges, developmental challenges, substance use disorders, and more. Today, we’re broadening our tent to include caregivers working not only in behavioral health and education, but also other areas of the allied health and medical fields. Arbor’s mission continues to evolve from that of a narrowly focused temporary staffing agency to a more comprehensive partner to all our stakeholders.
For caregivers, we’re committed to finding you rewarding work no matter your skill level, career stage, or area of interest. We hope to provide you with work that is interesting and, as an Arbor associate, we’ll do our best to help you advance your career, whether that’s through broader experience and additional training, or practicing new and more specialized skills. Our goal is to care for you so that you can care for those who need it most.
For our customers, we’re committed to being a strong human resources partner to your organization. We can source caregivers for you on a temporary, per diem, temp-to-hire, contract, or direct hire basis, assisting with human resources processes like recruiting, onboarding, training, payrolling, compliance, performance management, and more. We’re experts in finding the right people for your unique needs; managing all the critical back-office processes to ensure that your standards for delivering quality care are met.
Thank you again for your interest in Arbor, whatever it may be. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the shared goal of making quality caregiving make sense for everyone. I hope and believe that we can develop a long-term partnership that’s rewarding for us all.
