Direct Support Professional
Able-Services, the adult services arm of Leg Up Farm, is currently looking to hire full-time, part-time, and on-call Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) for their adult day program. DSPs are responsible for providing "hands-on" direct service to adults with special needs. They are responsible for carrying out the day-to-day duties necessary for Able Training Center to operate smoothly and to implement services in a manner consistent with the agency's mission and philosophies. This includes transporting participants to and/or from the day program in a safe, reliable, and timely manner. DSPs also provide daily care, support and supervision of program participants. They plan engaging opportunities, both within the facility and in the community and ensure that these activities and outings are carried out. They support participants in the facility and in the community to build their skill sets and work toward positive goals and outcomes while providing needed supports and keeping them safe at all times.
The part-time and on-call positions at Able-Services allow a great deal of flexibility and can work well for people that want to gain some experience and an income, but need a schedule that can be adapted to fit their needs. With our relief staff positions, this is a possibility.
Interested applicants will be required to fill out and submit an employment application. Appropriate candidates that submit an application will be scheduled for an interview. All potential employees must have acceptable results from criminal background checks, child abuse clearances, drug test and physical, and TB test. A valid drivers license, insurance, and vehicle registration are required. Experience working with individuals with special needs is preferred, but not required.
Able-Services is an equal opportunity employer.
