Job Descriptions

Direct Support Person

The Direct Support Person (DSP) is trained to provide guidance, supervision, and training to individuals with developmental and cognitive disabilities that are working to increase their level of independence while exercising their personal choice at home and in the community. 

As a DSP for Open Hearts Open Arms, you will receive the required training prior to being partnered with a supported individual so that you are prepared for your role and can focus on developing a helping relationship with the supported persons.  

We hope to find someone with experience working with individuals with disabilities and providing direct services to those individuals. We will accept applications without this experience with commensurate training or education. 

As a DSP, you will need to be able to access the community in all types of weather, with reliable transportation. 

The position of House Manager will be required once we have additional supported persons in our agency. We will be looking for someone who is ready to grow with our agency and take on additional responsibilities as needed and as their training allows.
