ABOUT THE ARC OF CUMBERLAND AND PERRY COUNTIES

The lack of services for people with disabilities led a group of parents to band together in 1953 to form The Arc of Cumberland and Perry Counties (CPARC). For decades, children and adults with disabilities were systematically denied educational opportunities, vocational training jobs, housing, and almost every other right and service that people without disabilities took for granted. Today, our staff continues to advocate for people with disabilities; offer tools and training to help families; and ensure that individuals live, work, and play in their community.

We would not be able to achieve our mission to empower, inspire, and educate people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and the community without our staff. Here at CPARC, we have a team-oriented culture where we work together and treat each other like family.

Because we value the input of each employee, we have an open-door policy. We also offer top compensation and benefits.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A DIRECT SUPPORT PROFESSIONAL (DSP)

As a Direct Support Professional (DSP), you support people with disabilities to live their best lives as independently as possible. You assist with activities of daily living such as household maintenance, transportation, administration of medications, grocery shopping, meal preparation, personal care, and more.

While supporting people with disabilities, you build strong relationships while learning their individual differences in ability, personality, interests, learning, motivation, likes, and dislikes. This helps you to provide the best care. In this position, you find the work of supporting people with disabilities to live amazing lives according to their own needs and desires extremely rewarding!
