When you're in a direct support position at Heritage Christian Services, you can put your confidence and resilience to work every day. Sometimes you're an advocate for the equality of people with disabilities. Other times you're an ally supporting people to meet friends, prepare meals, take medication or simply be their best. You can be more than one thing. You can be more of yourself and have a career that you're proud of.
We're hiring full-time and part-time direct support staff to assist adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We offer the chance to work a variety of days and hours – and that means we have schedules that work for everyone. Plus, there’s paid training, 21 days of paid time off in the first year, tuition reimbursement and extra pay when you work overnights and weekends.
We start most people at $11.75 an hour but when you work a Saturday or Sunday you earn an extra 50 cents an hour. If you work any day between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. you earn an extra 75 cents an hour. If you happen to work an overnight shift during the weekend, you get the higher of the two options, which is 75 cents and brings you to $12.50 an hour.
On top of that, if you work a shift at one of our sites that has more complex needs, you earn an additional $1 an hour. Now, you’re up to $13.50 an hour if you work overnight at one of these sites.

You don't need experience to work for people with disabilities. We provide all of your education and training. You may be a great fit for direct support if your background includes being a teacher, HHA (Home Health Aide), CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or any other healthcare position.
