Direct Support Professional
"When I first started 12 years ago with Waban, I was unsure if I could do this line of work due to only doing retail and factory work. Within a few months, I realized that this line of work wasn’t only fun, but was also very rewarding.
I work with some great people on staff and have been with a lot of the same consumers for most of my 12 years at Waban. The services Waban offers to consumers has made it possible for them to flourish as individuals, which has been great to witness and be a part of."
"The past 5 years working for Waban has given me the privilege to work with an outstanding team of individuals to enrich the lives of our consumers and share in their successes. It is a rewarding feeling to know that the supports and encouragement you’ve provided have helped others build their independence and achieve their own personal goals. Not only has working at Waban provided me with the opportunity to take part in our consumer’s journeys but Waban has also given me the opportunity to build on my own professional journey. Starting as a Direct Support Professional, Waban has supported me and provided me with the opportunity to learn the skills needed to advance to an Assistant House Manager and now a Program Manager."
