What We Do

As one of Iowa's most trusted non-profit, human services agencies, LSI has a legacy of serving children, adults, and families for more than 150 years. Our Services for People with Disabilities wrap care around individuals across the state, from providing occasional respite care or weekly services, to 24/7 support in either a shared apartment environment or one-on-one care through our hourly supported community living (SCL) program. You can make a direct impact on the lives of the Iowans we are privileged to serve.


What You'll Do

The Direct Support Professional (DSP) will work directly with the individual with a disability and/or mental health and provide support, assistance, and instruction in areas which facilitate personal growth and independence to adults that need 24 hour support. As a DSP you must be able to build and maintain positive and supportive relationships with individuals with disabilities and members or their family. This includes having interpersonal sensitivity and strong rapport building skills. People served by LSI may need assistance with physical cares (hygiene, diaper/brief changes, feeding, toileting, transfers) and the Direct Support Professional will, as necessary, assist with these cares and reflect a positive and willing attitude.


What You'll Need

Qualified candidates for this job will have either a high school diploma or a GED. Experience working with Supported Community Living (SCL) or with people with disabilities 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.


How We'll Support You

On top of joining the best team around, you can also receive:

- A competitive salary

- Comprehensive benefits

- A flexible schedule

- A 401(k)

- Generous paid time off

- Health, dental, life, and vision insurance

- Career-building opportunities

- Special Team LSI perks like gym discounts, pet insurance, and cell phone discounts through Verizon


Why You'll Love Working Here

"I enjoy working with people with disabilities because I'm able to make a difference in their lives and it has made a positive impact in my own." - Amber, LSI Contract Monitor
