Start Your Career at HELP

HELP's Annual 5k Run For Awareness

HELP Foundation is looking for compassionate individuals to join our team. If you are motivated to make a career out of helping others, we may have the job for you! Apply at to become a Direct Care Worker and start your career at HELP.

Direct Care Workers, or Direct Service Professionals (DSPs), at HELP provide support to the individuals with disabilities living at our residential sites or participating in our day support programs. Although the day-to-day duties of a DSP can change based on the needs of each individual, all DSPS are responsible for helping consumers with activities of daily living which can include cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene, and transportation.

Ewyn Tsang, Talent Acquisition and Retention Manager at HELP, encourages anyone who is interested to apply regardless of prior experience in the field, recognizing that motivation and reliability are more important attributes than experience. She confidently states, “HELP’s hands-on training program is thorough, so you’ll have the opportunity to get to know the needs and personalities of each consumer.”

When describing the DSP job Ewyn says, “the DSPs give an extra level support to the consumers,” and emphasizes that, “the main goal is to empower the consumer to be as independent as possible.” DSPs encourage consumers to make their own choices about what they do in their home and how they will interact with the community around them. Ultimately the DSPs help the consumers live their best lives as valued members of the community.

Currently HELP is seeking applicants to fill full-time and part-time schedules. The schedules vary in days and hours, providing the ability for each applicant to find an open schedule that will fit his or her needs. Applicants can expect that their assigned schedule will remain the same with the choice to pick up additional hours as they are available.

HELP offers a unique career path for highly motivated individuals who excel at DSP work. Our Site Leader, Program Specialist, and Manager roles are filled by individuals who began their careers at HELP as DSPs. These talented employees were recognized and promoted for their outstanding work and dedication and are now entrusted with overseeing multiple sites, managing staff, and ensuring high quality services for our consumers.

As an organization we are actively recruiting for these open Direct Service Professional positions and look forward to filling them quickly with qualified and motivated individuals. If you are ready to begin your career and make a difference, apply today:
