Would you be excited to develop an empathic and enthusiastic relationship with a young woman who has a lot of developmental and ability differences? She's warm, enthusiastic, curious, and most of her communication is non-verbal. $18/hr starting, plus mileage for transportation to activities. We dream of finding people for whom relating across that difference sounds interesting and exciting, who believe in everybody's rights to respect and self-determination, and who want to be on a team with us supporting her interests and strengths and challenging her. There's flexibility for hours, with a priority right now for Fri, Sat, Sun evenings. She needs support in all activities of daily living. No training/experience with developmental differences required. Kindness, trust, warmth, enthusiasm, empathy, playfulness, and patience are vital. You'll also need CPR, 1st Aid, and a background check from the agency supporting us. You can be reimbursed for those expenses.
