Daryl williams, operations assistant

“I have worked at Little City for over 24 years because I believe that I can make a difference in the lives of the children and the staff I support by ensuring the homes meet the staffing requirements to function appropriately. When I am able to make sure the children homes have adequate staff, it gives me the greatest satisfaction in my job.”

As the Operations Assistant, Daryl coordinates with Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) and on-call staff to ensure proper staffing for maintaining optimum productivity and quality care while meeting agency and regulatory standards. He manages and tracks overtime allocation and reviews all DSP and on-call staff timecards. Daryl is motivated to ensure the homes are staffed to meet our ratios and that the staff’s hours, benefit time and overtime allowance is processed accurately and managed to the best of his ability. Thanks to Daryl’s talents and abilities, our resident’s safety is ensured and home managers are alleviated from these tasks so they can effectively run programming in their homes. Daryl has been a critical member of the Little City Team for over 24 years. He previously served as a Support Service Associate and Senior Rehabilitative Service Associate. Daryl is an avid lover of fish and has multiple fish tanks in his home and office.
