At least one weekend shift is required each week. College students are welcome to apply to work summers and breaks when available.

In this entry-level position as a full- or part-time Direct Support Professional (DSP), you support people with developmental disabilities to live their best lives as independently as possible. As part of our respite program, you temporarily care for clients to give their main caretakers a short break from their regular responsibilities. You provide this direct care and guidance during day shifts, swing shifts, or night shifts in their homes or at the activities that they attend. Your support is needed in many areas of daily living including medical care, hygiene, grooming, budgeting, meal preparation, transportation, and housekeeping. You always do your part to ensure the completion of our clients' daily schedules.

You are responsible for implementing the individual prescriptive plans (IPPs) of each client. This means personalizing the home care you provide according to the needs of the individual. Using effective teaching and mentoring techniques, you provide life skills training. You are always careful to model appropriate social skills and behaviors. Conscientiously, you keep accurate and up-to-date documentation including behavior sheets, timecards, service logs, personal assistance sheets, medication records, and any other paperwork as required. You find it very rewarding to help individuals with developmental disabilities lead self-fulfilling lives with our human services organization!


Founded in 1967, we are a nonprofit organization that strives to help individuals with developmental disabilities reach their greatest potential and live full, enriching lives. Our vision is to create a fully integrated community where life for persons with developmental disabilities is valuable, purposeful, and fulfilling. We believe it is possible to make a positive difference in the lives of the individuals we serve by accepting people as they are and supporting them in achieving their fullest growth and development.
