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 career 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 dedicated, compassionate hourly part-time (24-29 hrs/week) Caseworkers in the Waterloo area (Black Hawk County). The Iowans we serve are seeking a life of greater confidence and independence, and it's our privilege to empower them toward success every day.

Hours for this position will start out as occasional status (no less than 10 hours per week) and will work up to 24-29 hours/week as caseload is established.  Once caseload is established, hours have the potential to increase up to 30+ if desired.




An hourly Caseworker works with individuals with intellectual disabilities or chronic mental illness. Our Caseworkers are there to provide support, assistance, and instruction in learning independent living skills like:

            - Money management

            - Socialization

            - Cooking

            - Personal hygiene


It's important that the individuals we work with are encouraged to be involved in their community. Our Caseworkers should know the basics of outcome-based performance measures, and develop Individualized Service Plans that are functional and reflective of the personal goals each of our individuals have.

An hourly Caregiver primarily works with individuals in a mix of evening and day hours, mostly Monday through Friday. Primary hours typically tend to be between 12pm-8pm. The person in this role should be willing and able to work occasional weekend hours, as needed. This role also has the potential to grow as more hours become available, and if desired.


Salary and Benefits


In addition to joining a family of caring teammates, part-time Caseworkers enjoy a competitive salary and paid time off. Benefits are pro-rated for part-time employees, and team members working 30+ hours are offered a 401(k) and a health insurance plan including health, dental, life, and vision insurance.




Qualified candidates for this job will have a Bachelor's degree in Human Services, Education, or another human services-related field. One year of related experience 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.


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