  • Overview

    Heritage Christian Services is hiring Community Support Staff to work 1:1 with people who live independently or with caregivers in the Buffalo Area. 

     

    When you apply for a community support position, you're choosing not to limit yourself to a single role. Sometimes you'll be an advocate for people with disabilities challenging stereotypes. Other times you'll serve behind the scenes as an ally, assisting with meal preparation, personal hygiene or taking medication. You can put all of your confidence and skills to work while you support a person to be his or her best.

     

    A full-time schedule is 32-40 hours weekly and part-time is 6-30 hours. Available shifts include mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends.

     

    We start FT employees at $11.75/hour and PT employees at $11.24/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. 

    Responsibilities

    • Provide the best level of assistance to people who are learning life skills, such as: managing money, keeping a schedule, riding the bus and more
