Lots of Ways to Work
Working as direct support staff is a rewarding job that can involve supporting someone at work, an a community setting, or in their home.

Because we work closely with people who are vulnerable and their care is our primary concern, all of our positions require a background check and drug test. Though experience is appreciated, it is not always required. Adelante provides all of the state-required trainings to our incoming staff members so they can work safely and effectively. Many positions require employees to drive for the agency, and for those positions a good driving record is required. More specifics are listed on the individual job openings.
