Independent Living and Housing Community Support Specialist
Do you want to work in an environment where you can make decisions and make things happen now, rather than waiting for the bureaucracy to do something in two or three years?
Do you like working independently and being accountable for your production but not micromanaged? Are you tired of working for organizations that say all the right words, but really don’t believe in the capacity of people with disabilities?
The IMAGE Center of Maryland just might be for you!
We are the Center for Independent Living serving the Baltimore Maryland area. We are an organization of people with and without disabilities at the cutting edge of disability change, providing services to assist individuals with disabilities to maintain independence and connect them with resources to benefit their lives. We teach independent living skills, one-of-a-kind engineering solutions, services to veterans to help them stay in their own homes, and services to young people so they can learn to live independently. With over fifteen programs and services, we are changing what it means to have a disability.
Our Independent Living and Housing Community Support Specialist will work in a variety of programs and settings. You don’t need prior experience with disability, but a broad knowledge of community resources in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and Harford County is preferred. We are seeking people who can multi-task and expect you to have a comfort level with the most current versions of Microsoft Office programs. This position requires excellent writing and communication skills and the ability to manage adverse situations and multiple tasks with deadlines.
Along with your cover letter and resume, begin a conversation with us by answering the following question:
Describe a life crisis, major obstacle, or personal limitation you have faced and how you managed it. If there are teachable lessons others can learn from your experience, how would you teach them?
