Why work for LSI?

"I view the world differently because of my work at LSI."

"I believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect."

Are you looking for a position where you can make a positive impact in the lives of others? At LSI, your journey is our passion! Our Services for People with Disabilities team is searching for a dedicated, energetic occasional Relief Direct Support Professional, in Des Moines, to provide support when there are absences or to help meet the needs of the people we serve.


Relief Direct Support Professionals will operate on an availability-based schedule and must work a minimum of 16 hours per month in additional to regularly schedule meetings and trainings. Candidates must be willing and able to work weekends and may require long hours, and must provide availability to supervisors at least one month in advance. 


A Relief Direct Support Professional (DSP) works with 1-3 individuals with developmental disabilities or mental health diagnoses in their home and in the community. The people we work with require 24-hour supervision, support, assistance, and instruction in learning independent living skills. They may include, but are not limited to:

  • Money Management
  • Socialization
  • Cooking
  • Personal Hygiene

A DSP is also there to be an advocate for the individual in communicating their needs, self-expression, and achieving their goals. 

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. 

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. 

It's their life. It's your career. Make a difference in both by joining our LSI team today!
