Progress Center for Independent Living is recruiting personal assistants and Certified Nursing Assistants to assist people with disabilities in their homes.  Full and part time work is available. No previous experience is necessary. Personal assistants are offered $13.48/ hour. People with disabilities are encouraged to apply. This is an opportunity to work with people with disabilities and to learn about independent living. Personal assistants play a significant role in helping a person with disabilities to live in their own home, instead of a nursing home.

Duties you may perform:

  • Housekeeping & Laundry
  • Cooking & Meal Preparations/Clean up
  • Assist with hygiene needs, including bathing and toiletry
  • Running Errands
  • Assisting with mobility needs
  • Many individualized needs, including getting in and out of bed, and dressing

Join Progress Center’s Weekly Peer Support and Art Group. Before Covid-19, this group, led by Board Member Susan Becker, met monthly.  Over the past month or so, the group has met bi-weekly.  Now, the group will transition to weekly meetings.

At the meetings, we spend an hour sharing what is on our minds, and sharing artwork on which we have been working.  If you have a piece of art you would like to share, please feel free to bring it to the meeting to share over the zoom screen, or send a picture of the art to the meeting organizer ahead of time.  Then, your art will be shared via screen share during the meeting.
