COUNSELING JOBS WITH FREE RENT!

Jubilee Association provides support services to people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities in Montgomery County, Maryland,  helping them live in community settings and pursue their goals and dreams. We often use "live-in" staff as an integral part of the equation.  As an example, "Will" and "Sera"* are a young  couple who live in a beautiful town center apartment with the assistance of their families and several support staff, including one who lives with them and works with them on a part-time basis. We also have individuals that live by themselves with a staff, or groups of 2-3 people who live in apartments, townhouses or single family homes  with staff.

We find that when we have staff making their home with the people we support, there is an increased sense of ownership and commitment to create a homey and stable environment. As such, we want to create a list of people who are potentially interested in a part- or full-time live-in arrangement with us at some point in the future. Live-in positions can be a win-win when staff are in transitional situations, such as: student, transplant to the DC area, bouncing back after a divorce or similar life change. In addition, occasionally some locations can accommodate a married couple or a parent/child situation. 

Potential jobs are throughout Montgomery County, a Maryland suburb of Washington, DC.

Here are some typical options:

1. Part-time: live rent-free and get paid to work 5-29 hours/week with person or persons supported, mainly early mornings and evenings/nights from Sunday evening to Friday morning. On the weekends, you are free to stay or go.. This is a fairly flexible arrangement that meshes with many full-time positions or school schedules. Part-time benefits apply, including paid training, time-and-a-half for holiday work, vacation incentive, paid sick and annual leave after one year.

2. Full-time: live rent-free and get paid to work 30-50 hours/week with persons supported, mainly early mornings (e.g. 6-9 a.m.) and evenings/nights (e.g. 4-10 p.m.) from Sunday evening to Friday morning. On the weekends, you are free to stay or go. Full benefits, including health/dental/life insurance, retirement, paid sick, annual and holiday leave, apply. Annual compensation can be up to about $31K, not counting free rent, free utilities, free meals when on duty and a pretty sweet commute.

Requires: several years of related experience, intermediate computer skills, great customer service and interpersonal skills, HS diploma, clean driving record, ability to help organize a household.

Some positions may require the use of your own vehicle & possession of 100/300/50 auto insurance. 

Some positions may require a person of a specific gender due to personal care provided and sharing of personal living space.

Let's say Alan (24) and Terrick (27) have selected you to help them as they move away from their families and into their first apartment. You quickly notice that Alan is very neat and Terrick is very messy and the men argue over chores and the state of the apartment. How do you proceed? **
You learn that Terrick has spent most of his rent money on gifts for a girl he likes. You are concerned the girl might be manipulating him. Also, the rent is due next week and Terrick doesn't have any savings. He begs you not to tell his family. What do you do?*
