Hope House Foundation

Part-Time

Direct Support Professional Positions

Do you believe that one person can make a difference?  Do you wish that every person had the opportunity to participate fully in community life? 

If so, then you’ll fit right in at Hope House Foundation.  Our staff arepassionate about what we believe to be the last great fight for civil rights: The rights of people with disabilities to full inclusion in the community, and the right to live in one’s own home or apartment, rather than living with a group of people just because they share the same diagnosis.

Simple things, like choosing when to eat dinner, what to wear, or when to go to bed, are the first steps in determining one’s own destiny.  But some people need a little help attaining their goals.  And that’s where you come in.

What are the basic job duties?

You’ll be helping the people we support, individuals with intellectual disabilities,  with completing the tasks of everyday living, including but not limited to laundry, cooking, budgeting, grocery shopping, community integration, daily life skills, socialization, self-advocacy, home organization, pet care,  medication management, family relations, and in some cases, personal hygiene.  Many of the people we support have spent much of their lives in institutions or group homes, where they did not have the opportunity to learn these basic skills or the freedom to live lives of their own choosing.

What do you pay, and what benefits do you offer?

Part-time wages begin at $10.67 per hour.  We have part-time hours available to work during the day, evenings, weekends, and overnights.  We will train. Full-time wages vary according to the position and the length of time you’ve worked for us.  If you’re interested in advancing your career, you should know that Hope House Foundation has a long tradition of promoting from within.  And because we use a participatory management system, you’ll be involved with making many of the major decisions that affect you.  Full time employees are offered a generous benefit package.

Basic Requirements: Must have a driver’s license, personal vehicle, consistent, reliable work history and  good criminal history and driving record. Please fill out your application in full  online @ www.hope-house.org.  Please visit our website to find out more about our fantastic organization!
