The Difference Is You!

Working with children and adults with developmental disabilities is an experience like no other.

Where else can you create deep, lasting bonds with individuals and families, while empowering them to reach new levels of respect, self-determination, empowerment, and self-advocacy? DEC has unique opportunities for caring, determined people in search of this type of engaging and rewarding employment.

This Will Change You!

In teaching life skills, developing goals, and encouraging clients and families, you’ll start to see your own friends, family, neighbors, and community in a new light. As a client works through a setback, you’ll see amazing examples of strength and commitment. This is not a job free of challenges – there are obstacles unique to each client – but it is incredibly rewarding to see the effect your effort has on the people we serve. You’ll find your own senses of respect, empowerment, and advocacy grow in proportion to your commitment to serve.
