Wesley Glen Ministries is seeking full time and part time direct support professionals who are energetic, caring, and have the passion to care for others. Residential DSPs support the residents in our group homes. Each home provides care for four adults, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by a team of dedicated professionals. The team works to develop and implement an individualized care plan encompassing a whole-person-centered approach: physical, emotional, community, family, financial, and spiritual. This approach includes ensuring all of life’s necessities, such as support for daily life skills, meal preparation, housekeeping, personal hygiene, medication management, and social activities, are thoroughly met for each resident.

If you’re compassionate, patient, and find meaning in this type of work, you'll find a promising future at Wesley Glen.
