Direct Support Associate

CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF IN THIS ROLE?

As a direct support associate in our day program, you will participate alongside individuals as they partake in enriching, integrative activities throughout their communities. Gain hands-on experience working with adults who represent a diverse range of abilities and needs, supporting them as they achieve greater independence. Your flexible role will adjust from supervision to hand-over-hand assistance as you support each individual during work, cooking classes, yoga, or other vocational activities in their communities.

A position in our residential program will bring you inside the homes of individuals in order to provide significant, needed assistance in their daily routines. Share your compassionate energy as you accompany our members to the store, transport them to work, or assist them out in the community.
