Headquartered in Wayzata, we have 35 houses and 10 apartment programs in Hennepin County. We are proud to be a Star Tribune Top Workplace for ten years in a row!

Responsibilities:
As a DSP, you will directly support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The people we serve live in Hammer’s group homes or apartment programs with the support of caring teams who provide on-going assistance, teach independent living skills, support health and personal cares, help with household tasks, and offer social and emotional support.
