Direct Support Professionals
Are you looking for a rewarding experience? We are looking for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) to work in our residential homes supporting adult individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Here at Delta Projects, we promote dignity and respect for each individual while also focusing on individual needs, hopes and desires. This is the kind of role where you will roll up your sleeves and dive in to working with a group of individuals who may need guidance and role modeling.
DSPs are responsible for maintaining a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment which fosters growth and development while facilitating mutual aid and self-help skills among individuals. In your role, you will work together with the people we serve, their families, friends, employers, and other support staff to transform their lives by either building independence skills or increasing each person’s quality of life.
As a DSP, you will provide direct support to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a small group residential setting or day program. DSPs have a range of duties include administrating medication under the Medication Administration Plan (MAP), implementing treatment plans, and assisting people with activities of daily living, such as household chores, cooking, and personal hygiene. You also strengthen residents’ connection to their community by providing transportation on outings such as shopping and doctor’s appointments.
- High school diploma or equivalent. MAP certified preferred.
- All applicants must be willing to undergo Medication Administration training, if they are not already certified.
- All applicants must be willing to go through a two-week paid new hire orientation.
- All applicants must have a current, valid, US drivers’ license for at least one year.

We are committed to you! We care about your wellness and safety. We recognize our staff through different events and programs. We offer great paid training, great benefits, and career growth!
