More than a third of our about 400 employees have been with the OHI team for five years or more. We believe that’s because of our unique philosophy, family atmosphere, sense of teamwork, and commitment to people with intellectual disabilities and mental illness.

Direct Support Professionals
Most of the job openings at OHI are for Direct Support Professionals. These OHI team members work day-to-day, offering support to people with mental illness or intellectual disabilities while teaching them skills they need to live independently in their communities.
More specifically, Direct Support Professionals:
- Support people as they go about their daily activities, be a role model, and mentor
- Administer medications if needed
- Foster positive relationships between people with disabilities and families, friends, neighbors, and community members
- Maintain professional documentation
- Provide opportunities for people to be active members of their community
- Maintain a positive attitude and create a positive atmosphere
Variety of Hours
Direct Support Professionals work a variety of part- and full-time hours — during the day, in the evening, on weekends, or around the clock, including overnights.
DSP positions include health, dental, life insurance benefits, paid training and certification, personal paid leave, and holiday benefits. Enjoy non-traditional working hours and a job that matters! Have real career advancement opportunities!
Community Supports Supervisors
We occasionally have openings for Community Supports Supervisors (CSSs) who oversee services that support people with disabilities — mental illness, co-occurring mental health, substance abuse disorders, intellectual disabilities, or all three — and supervise DSPs.
Working as part of an interconnected team, a CSS:
- Assures quality supports and services are provided to people receiving OHI support services
- Develops plans to help people with disabilities live more productively in their communities.
- Keeps records and monitors progress of people receiving OHI support services
