Sponsored Residential Provider
Company: SUPPORT SERVICES OF VIRGINIA INC.
Posted on: January 22, 2023
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.
