What our employees have to say:

“The support you get from supervisors and co-workers is amazing. It makes the job much easier.”

“Sweetser’s vision of ‘Helping people create promising futures’ goes beyond the people we serve. As an employee for over 28 years, I have found my ideal niche. Sweetser has been supportive of my personal and career goals.”

“I never thought I would be working here, but I’m having a ton of fun. Why? Because I get to live vicariously as an 8-year-old in ways like taking them all biking,” said Bob Quick, Ed Tech III, Sweetser School, Belfast

“I remember most of the staff that worked with me in Residential Services in Winterport when I was there as a client. Every staff person brought something new and exciting into my life — a love for the outdoors, teaching me guitar, keeping me in line when I forgot my manners, and even showing me how to pin on a corsage for prom night,” said Daniel Reese, a former Children’s Residential Supervisor with Sweetser in Winterport. While  earning a degree in social work he’s working as a Youth and Family Counselor – Relief at Sweetser. He plans to use his experiences as a youth-in-care in his professional career by advocating for those who need support like he did, with the ultimate goal of making a better world in any way, small or large.
