Sponsored Residential Provider

Location: Lynchburg
Posted on: May 20, 2023

Job Description:

SSVA continuously recruits new sponsor providers who want to open their homes for multi-year placements of one or two adult individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our sponsors are committed to helping others become active members of the community in a natural setting.

SSVA is happy to contract with individuals, couples, partners or family groups (mother/daughter, etc). However, we prefer sponsor families who do not have any children younger than 12 years old. Sponsors must be 21 or older and have a HS diploma or GED. Sponsors should be active and engaged in the community. Sponsor candidates must have at least 6 months experience (career or life experience) working with individuals with Intellectual Disabilities - preferably adults. If you do not meet these requirements, we may be able to offer you options to work as a DSP in one of our other programs to gain the experience. It is possible for a relative of someone eligible for sponsored services to become a sponsor for them. However, there are stricter guidelines for qualifying than for those who sponsor non-related individuals. Sponsors should be comfortable functioning in an electronic environment and have strong writing skills.

Becoming a sponsor means that you will be opening a small business as a sub-contractor with SSVA; sponsor are not employees. This role requires exceptional levels of personal responsibility, yet it can provide opportunities for greater self-determination and chances to share your own joys and interests. Sponsors are responsible for all aspects of the individual's support needs. SSVA has a steady stream of individuals looking for sponsored homes and we are careful about matching people with homes that share their interests.
. Requirements:
--- Provide detailed information about your lifestyle.
--- Spend as long as 3 months to become fully certified.
--- Complete needed trainings, offered at no cost to you.
--- Cooperate with guidelines for your house to become a licensed site.
--- Celebrate diversity; accept people who may have a wide variety of personalities and needs.PI213042278
