Supporting Men and Women with Disabilities...


Working at Amicus is both rewarding and enjoyable. Our seven programs have a wide variety of positions and work hours. Amicus is known for the quality of its staff and for their longevity. Training is a central focus for each Program Director and for the entire agency. All staff who work directly with program participants will become Direct Support Professional (DSP) certified. We work closely with each employee to ensure that certification is not unduly burdensome.

There are many areas of interest in which staff learning occurs, from Positive Behavioral Supports to American Sign Language. Work at Amicus will challenge and motivate you. The individuals you work with will bring meaning and reward to your life and you will become part of a well respected agency.

Amicus provides equal employment opportunity and reasonable accommodation to all qualified applicants and employees regardless of national origin, gender, age, religion, creed, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, marital or veteran status, or any other legally protected status.
