Hope Services, the Bay Area's largest nonprofit organization, has been providing a wide array of services for people with developmental disabilities for over 60 years. We are seeking Companions to support the men and women we serve through Hope's Supported Living Services program. We would like to add your strong teaching and caring skills to our dynamic team! We offer a friendly, learning environment and recognize talent when opportunities for new and challenging positions arise.
Companions work with individuals and teach vital daily living skills that support participation in a variety of activities based on individual choice at home and in the community. Your schedule as a Companion will be based on the preferences and needs of the person supported and may include evening and weekend hours. We have both full and part time opportunities available. You will need to have a California driver's license; automobile insurance, a clean DMV record, and, in many instances a reliable, safe car.
