If so, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) might have the perfect job for you. We’re ranked as one of the 100 Best Non-Profit Employers in Oregon.
We’re currently seeking a full-time Supported Living Specialist who will work 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday (8 hours per day, between the hours of 8am to 5:30pm).
You’ll support adults who experience various developmental disabilities; all of them live independently in their own houses and apartments. You’ll get to help them make their own choices, learn awesome new skills, and do fun activities in the community.
