If you're not familiar with the responsibilities of a Direct Support Professional, it's basically the most rewarding job ever! While specific responsibilities vary depending on the individual you are supporting, DSPs can provide a variety of daily living cares, such as helping with house chores, medication administration, transportation to appointments, companionship, community activities, personal cares (bathing, changing, toileting), skills training, behavior management and much more. Essentially, your role is to assist our residents in living the best and most independent life as possible, respecting their choices and autonomy and promoting personal growth and safety.

We're currently seeking applicants who are comfortable with providing daily supports in a behavioral health group home setting, and who are comfortable managing higher behavior individuals on a regular basis. We provide 2 days of Oregon Intervention System (OIS) training to provide the skills and education necessary to help de-escalate crisis situations, and ensure the safety and independence of each of our individuals that we support.

  • Great health benefits: medical, dental, vision, life, etc. (those working 30+ hours/week) and Dungarvin covers majority of the premium!

  • Have basic computer and English communication skills, as you will need to write electronic documentation each shift regarding the activities, health and behaviors of the people you support.

We believe each person has his or her own set of aspirations, goals, strengths and dreams. We work closely with each person and people close to them to discover and understand this unique combination. Utilizing our experience and expertise, we design and provide a constellation of services to support the person in achieving his or her life goals and to assist them in living as independent a life as possible.
