What is Direct Support?

Heritage Christian Services works with thousands of people in Rochester and Buffalo to make sure they have access to housing, jobs and other things that make life better.

Most of our agency’s 3,000 employees work directly with people who have disabilities. Their work happens where life happens, which means working could be where people visit family or even go fishing, to mention a couple of examples. But wherever they are, they treat people with respect and dignity.

In a direct support role, support adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by:

  • teaching independent living skills
  • assisting with personal care
  • advocating for inclusive communities
  • encouraging growth in personal relationships
  • and assisting people to fulfill in their lives what matters most to them.

Direct support professionals might find themselves in several roles, like being an: educator * hair stylist * adventurer * chauffeur * health and wellness coach * travel companion * advocate * chef * dance partner * encourager * and more.

Discover a meaningful career at Heritage Christian Services, where every day is different. In a direct support job, you will not only grow as a person, but you’ll be making the community better.
