The Arc Mid-Hudson On-Call Direct Support Professional - Hagan residence in Catskill, New York
On-Call Direct Support Professional - Hagan residence
The Direct Support Professional (DSP) provides support and skills training to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in a residential setting and within the community.
Hagan residence is located in a quiet neighborhood in Jefferson Heights. Three women and five men, each with his or her own distinct personality and interests, live at Hagan. DSPs will accompany them as they venture out to attend various types of community events, affording opportunities for socializing with friends and meeting new people. Warmer weather provides time to spend outdoors on the spacious patio and in the lovely backyard, where barbecues are enjoyed throughout the season. If you enjoy being involved in the community and you have a strong desire to motivate, influence, and enrich the lives of others as they pursue their goals and ambitions, Hagan is a wonderful employment choice.
A high school diploma or GED is desired. Post-high-school education in Human Services is a definite plus. An acceptable NYS driver's license and basic computer knowledge are a must. An informative, paid new hire orientation is provided in a comfortable learning environment. Training will also include Van Certification, SCIP, First Aid/CPR, and Medication Administration certification.
