Stuck in a job rut? Get moving again at LOGAN

Join the LOGAN Residential Team as a DSP and earn up to $875 in sign-on bonuses the first year!

Stuck in a rut in your current job?
Working hard but getting nowhere?
Tired of the daily grind?

If you answered yes, then it’s time to make a job change. And the timing couldn’t better! Opportunity is knocking at LOGAN, so open up and see what we have to offer. 

At LOGAN, going to work means helping someone discover and fulfill their potential. Jobs matter at LOGAN. Employees matter. They matter to the people they serve and to the agency and its mission.  Here’s what one employee says about working at LOGAN: “LOGAN is in my heart.  I’m pretty sure it’s my ‘forever’ job.”

Wanted: Direct Support Professionals

  • In our Residential Services program, our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) help manage a household in a Group Living or Supported Living site. House staff plan and prepare meals, help the residents with housecleaning and bill-paying, and provide assistance for daily personal living tasks. They become family to the men and women they assist. You get to work in a home, not an office, and no two days are alike.
  • In our Studios at LOGAN day services program, DSPs assist the men and women we serve with a variety of projects including art, crafts, cooking, music and gardening. If you spend a lot of time watching the DIY channel on television or browsing Pinterest on the Internet, then this is the job for you. We pay you to share your creative talents with others. The Studios are located at LOGAN Center and LOGAN Industries in South Bend.
  • In Community and Family Supports, our DSPs take clients shopping, to the movies and on other fun outings. Imagine getting paid to window shop at the mall or go to the movies. It happens at LOGAN! Those jobs take you out into the community every day. So if you don’t like the confinement of an office, this would be a great job for you.

Don’t let the word “professional” in the title Direct Support Professional scare you. We train our staff, so it’s OK if you haven’t worked in direct care before. You don’t need previous experience, but you do need a valid driver’s license, clean driving record, and you must pass a drug test and background check.

Immediate benefits

For a limited time, LOGAN will be offering sign-on bonuses for the first year of employment as a Direct Support Professional in our Group Living or Supported Living programs. You can earn $125 upon completion of a 75-day successful introductory review, $250 upon completion of six months and $500 upon completion of the first year. That’s a grand total of $875 in one year! If someone who currently works at LOGAN referred you, then that person earns the bonuses, too. Learn more about these benefits here. Please note, the sign-on bonuses apply only to those hired for Group Living or Supported Living.

In all departments, LOGAN offers competitive wages and extensive benefits for eligible staff, including paid time off, health insurance, life insurance, matching 403 B retirement savings, and reimbursement for on-the-job mileage in your personal vehicle
