You will develop close relationships with the people we support, partnering with them, their families, friends, and support network to help them achieve their personal goals and build skills needed for greater independence. As a Residential Counselor, you will assist individuals to develop self-management skills, responsibilities of daily life, meal planning and preparation, and transportation to medical appointments. You will work with individuals to foster social connections, friendships, and community membership while respecting and celebrating the individual’s culture, talents, and contributions.
