The Direct Support Professional (DSP) will work directly with the individual with a disability and/or mental health and provide support, assistance, and instruction in areas which facilitate personal growth and independence to adults that need 24 hour support.

As a DSP you must be able to build and maintain positive and supportive relationships with individuals with disabilities and members or their family. This includes having interpersonal sensitivity and strong rapport building skills.

People served by LSI may need assistance with physical cares (diaper/brief changes, feeding, toileting, transfers) and the Direct Support Professional will, as necessary, assist with these cares and reflect a positive and willing attitude.

Salary and Benefits

In addition to joining a family of caring teammates, you'll also enjoy a competitive salary and benefit package at LSI, including a 401(k), paid time off, and health, dental, life, and vision insurance.


Qualified candidates for this job will have either a high school diploma or a GED. Experience working in Supported Community Living or with people with disabilities is preferred, but not required.

This position requires a valid driver's license, auto insurance, a good driving record, and the ability to pass an extensive background check, including checks of the Dependent Adult and Child Abuse registries, the Sex Offender registry, and the criminal history check.
