Direct-care positions in our group homes or apartment programs, assisting consumers with developmental disabilities in daily living skills such as cooking, hygiene, cleaning, medications, transportation, socialization, and learning new skills. All of our group homes and apartment programs are located in Cape May County.

The starting rate of pay is $9.00 per hour for the first 96 hours of training, and then the pay is raised to $9.50 per hour. If you have previous experience in the field of developmental disabilities then the starting rate is higher.

At this time we have full-time (40 hours per week), part-time (8 to 24 hours per week), and on-call work (filling in for those out sick or on vacation). Most of the work here is either second (3pm-11pm) or third (11pm-7am) shifts. We especially need staff for overnight shifts. There's not much day work (7am-3pm) here in the group homes during the week, but some on the weekends.

There's a benefits package including health (Horizon Blue Cross), prescription, vision, dental (Delta Dental), 12 paid time-off days per year to begin with that increases over the years, group-term life insurance, retirement plan, and holiday pay.
