As a DSP:

You’ll go to work every day knowing you’re the key to making someone’s day meaningful. You’ll teach life skills, encourage dreams and witness the breathtaking potential of human resilience.

You can forget cubicle walls and trade spreadsheets for purpose. Those we serve aren’t numbers; they’re vibrant individuals who have much to offer. You’ll be their guide, cheerleader and friend.

You’ll enjoy $18-$20/hr., benefits, flexible schedules and a team that feels like family. We celebrate each other’s wins, support through challenges and grow together. Life Unlimited isn’t just a workplace, it’s a community.

You don’t need a fancy degree, just a heart full of empathy and compassion to support others. We provide the training, so come ready to break barriers, rewrite expectations and make every day memorable.
