Are you looking for an awesome job where you get to make a difference every day? If so, UCP Oregon might have the perfect job for you!
UCP Oregon is an exciting and empowering place to work.

We’re currently seeking a caregiver “Personal Assistant” who will support a woman who lives in her own house in Milwaukie and experiences developmental disabilities. She is an energetic, enthusiastic woman with a great sense of humor. She is eager to work with a “Personal Assistant” who enjoys having lots of fun. Together, you will go on trips, explore her very cool neighborhood, go bowling, and play games such as UNO.
You will also work together on household chores, cooking, and running errands. She needs assistance with showering, taking medications, eating, and transferring from her wheelchair.
You’ll work two shifts per week, totaling 40 hours per week: 12pm on Sunday to 6pm on Monday (a 30-hour shift) and 10am to 8pm on Friday (a 10-hour shift). *You’ll also work your regular hours on Agency holidays.
