Then UCP Oregon might have the perfect job for you! UCP Oregon is an exciting and empowering place to work. We help adults who experience developmental disabilities to live the life of their dreams—whether that’s living independently, working in a great job, or pursuing their interests and hobbies. We’re one of the top 100 Non-profit Employers in Oregon.

We’re currently seeking a full-time caregiver “Personal Assistant” who will support a young woman who experiences developmental disabilities. She is a friendly, sweet, and social person who lives in an apartment, near Clackamas Community College’s campus in Oregon City.

You’ll spend part of your time doing fun activities at home, such as watching movies, listening to music, reading young adult novels and Disney princess books, chatting, and playing board games. You’ll also do fun activities in the community, such as going to musicals, concerts, and church events and dances.

She also needs assistance as she takes medications, and as she deals with emotional challenges. You’ll also help her build independence in areas such as bathing, dressing, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, and budgeting.
