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.
Thirteen people, both men and women, live at the Birches Apartments. Located in Kingston, it has the benefit of being in close proximity to ample local events and activities. It's not unusual for DSPs to accompany someone to a sporting event or community theater performance, or a trip to local shops and restaurants. Maybe there's a day site-seeing trip out of town. Whatever the activity or destination is, the energetic and dedicated team of DSPs at the Birches are ready to support someone as they attain their life goals and dreams.
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.
