Mary Lee Foundation is a local non-profit agency providing services to individuals with intellectual disabilities. We believe in the dignity of every person.
Here is an opportunity to make a positive impact on someone’s life – become a Host Home! This is a chance to help make a difference by opening your home to an individual with developmental/ intellectual disabilities. Host Homes create a supportive, family-like environment, and supply all of the care needed for an adult in this program. Host Homes also assist with all activities of daily living 24 hours a day.
We are seeking someone who is available to provide a safe and comfortable home, while ensuring the basic physical and emotional needs required for our individuals to live a high-quality life. You must have the ability to establish a comfortable, supportive, and genuine relationship with the individual you house and support.
Our Host Homes are contracted and reimbursed at a per-diem rate. As with all Mary Lee Foundation employees, applicants will need to pass a background check and not be listed on the national Employment Misconduct Registry, or on either Office of the Inspector General Lists.
Here are the current openings:
Client 1 is a male client who needs some physical assistance.
In addition to the per-diem rate of pay, this Host Home would have the opportunity to stay in one of our fine, close to downtown, apartments at a much reduced rate.
· Clean criminal background check
· Must live in Travis County
· Must be willing to receive training in medication administration, CPR/First Aid, and other specifics surrounding the individual’s needs.
Please call (512) 442-6077 to see if you are a good match! Alternatively submit a letter of interest along with your resume, explaining why you would be a good Host Home and we will have someone reach out to you.
