The Benefits of Working with Hope


The Job

A Day in the Life…


This is not a desk job! Our direct support professionals are mentors to the individual’s we support. This looks like coaching, teaching, and building engagement within the community to create long-term life skills and success. In a typical day you are playing games, going on outings, engaging in the community, providing support for behavioral/emotional regulation, and coaching people to lead exceptional lives. At Hope, you will partner with your program manager to create individual plans, create a personalized and adaptive household, promote and aid with independence in personal care. We collaborate with our DSP’s to develop an understanding of the philosophy, purpose, policies/objectives, and the top-notch standards of Hope Human Services.
