DIRECT SUPPORT PROFESSIONAL

Partnerships in Community Living, Inc. (PCL) is a nonprofit organization with headquarters in Monmouth and Grants Pass. We are devoted to building partnerships with people with intellectual/developmental disabilities, their families, our communities, and our employees. Prospective candidates will show an understanding of the basic principles of dignity and respect for all people, while promoting the work of PCL concerning social justice for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

A primary purpose of the DSP is to assist people who need support to lead self-directed lives and to participate fully in our communities and nation. This emphasis on empowerment and participation is critical because the prejudices of society form powerful barriers that prevent many people with mental or physical disabilities from enjoying a high quality of life. It is the mandate of the DSP to follow the individual path suggested by the unique gifts, preferences, and needs of each person they support, and to walk in partnership with the person, and those who love him or her, toward a life of opportunity, well-being, freedom, and contribution.
