"Disability is not a brave struggle or ‘courage in the face of adversity.’ Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live." – Neil Marcus
Can you “refocus” when you see an adult with a physical or developmental disability?
Instead of zooming in on the disability, can you zoom out? Can you at least catch a glimpse of the whole person – someone with a unique story waiting to be heard, differing abilities waiting to be recognized and most importantly a person who is entitled to love, respect and legal rights afforded every American? If so, ReFocus could be right for you.
ReFocus employees are motivated by a belief in the equality of all persons regardless of disability. We are committed to creating a community where adults with differing abilities can experience genuine caring and respect, where each person can participate as fully as possible in the normal activities of daily life and where each person is challenged to reach his or her full potential, whatever that may be.
A desire to teach, assist and model skills and behaviors that will enrich the lives of our clients is the first step toward employment at ReFocus. Experience with special needs folks or other human service work is helpful but not required. We offer extensive on-the-job training that will equip you with the knowledge, techniques and skills you need to work successfully and compassionately with adults with developmental disabilities.
If ReFocus sounds like an organization where you would “fit right in,” please apply. We’d love to meet you.
