Live-in with Free Rent

Location: Rockville, MD

Department: Personal Supports

Type: Part Time to Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Jubilee Association provides support services to people who have intellectual and other developmental disabilities, helping them live in community settings and pursue their goals. We often use "live-in" staff as an integral part of the equation.

We are looking for a warm, outgoing, adventurous Direct Support Professional to assist a young man who recently moved from his family home  to his own apartment. Jay* lives in a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in downtown Rockvile, Maryland. Amenities within walking distance include restaurants, shops, grocery store, movie theater, Metro and more. .

Some responsibilities: assist with managing the apartment, working with Jay to create structures (such a meal planning, grocery shopping, cleaning) and activity schedules, transporting and accompanying him to some to his events. The staff should be punctual with good verbal and written communication skills.

Jay is a very capable young man on the autism spectrum. He works, takes public transportation, and is passionate about movies of many genres including action, comedy, animation, musicals, and much more. He loves Marvel and other classic comics, 80’s music such as Michael Jackson, traveling, exploring Washington DC or going on other day trips, and visiting theme parks. He  loves roller coasters and has an annual pass to Six Flags, so be ready to go frequently if hired! Jay  also enjoys putting together 1000-2000 piece puzzles relating to his interests, and these colorful works of art frame his walls. 

Jay works several jobs during the day. We are looking for someone who can assist with the morning routine and return to work again in the evening. Timing of the evening shift is somewhat flexible because we can have another staff person work with him in the afternoon if the live-in staff has another job.

Jay is a kind, nonjudgmental person and this is a wonderful, fun opportunity for the right companion. Staff need to be able to genuinely connect, and they need to be able to keep up with his active, adventurous life.


Requires: several years of related experience, own vehicle, clean driving record, adequate auto insurance, ability to complete required training.

The position is a part-time up to 29 hours a week or it can be combined with other position to be a full-time position. This position starts at 12.20/hour and comes with free rent and part-time benefits.
