Direct Support Professionals (DSP)

Apply Now

DSPs are the link to the community for individuals with disabilities. For some, they may be the eyes of those unable to see, or the voice for those who can’t speak. For others, they are friend, cheerleader and subtle support on the path to one’s true potential. DSPs are responsible for providing companionship, social skill and job coach training to people with disabilities on a one on one basis. You must be comfortable driving an individual in your own vehicle (We do have auto and liability insurance).
