A unique opportunity to not only provide training, support, and care to Margot - a delightful young woman with IDD - but to also help to extend innovative community-based programs of adaptive recreation and environmental stewardship for people with IDD.

We offer competitive salaries and an exceptionally  stimulating and supportive work environmentEmail us for more information.

Our Goals

1. To ensure 35-50 hours a week of direct support for Margot

Margot is a 22 year-old, non-verbal young woman with significant levels of IDD. Our goal is to provide her with 5 to 6 days a week of teaching / support at home and in the community.

2. To develop work, volunteer, and recreation programs for Margot and others 

We aim to do this in collaboration with local businesses and non-profits, while leveraging partnerships with agencies at the county, state, and national level. Read more about the programs we hope to build in Kennett here
