Consumer-Directed Service Program


The Consumer-Directed Service Program has recently experienced considerable growth.

The need for Support Brokers continues to grow.

Support brokers work directly for adults and/or families with children that have developmental disabilities by helping:

  • maximize independence and integration
  • develop, write, manage and budget services
  • support responsible choices
  • identify goals
  • identify resources

Job duties of a Support Broker vary, as beyond core responsibilities,
duties depend on the needs and wishes of the employer.

These independent positions are:
Flexible Paid Part-time to full-time
