Direct Support Professional
Are you a compassionate, hardworking person who wants to have an impact on the world? Being a Direct Support Professional is the job for you!
Easterseals Arc is a non-profit agency providing support for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our programs include employment services, day programs, supported living, respite, recreation, and more. Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) work directly with our clients to provide assistance and instruction in their homes or in the community. As a DSP, you have a direct impact on people’s lives!
Your day-to-day duties will depend on the specific clients you work with. Some require minimal assistance, while others may require a significant amount of help with things like hygiene, mobility, or health care. Whatever the situation may be, Easterseals Arc provides training as well as a 24-hour call center to answer any question that arises.
Most of our clients are very active in the community, so you may find that your workday includes going to festivals, movies or sports events; exploring museums and art galleries; visiting the zoo or conservatory; going bowling; or anything else that interests your clients. And, Easterseals Arc pays your admission and mileage for any activities or outings with clients!
DSP pay ranges from $11.25 to $14.50 depending on your experience level, plus additional pay for evening, overnight and weekend shifts. Our benefits package includes:
- Sick, vacation and personal time off (even during your first year)
- Health, dental, vision, disability and life insurance
- Contributions to your Health Savings Account
- Tuition reimbursement for related coursework
