Care Provider(s) Needed in Franklin County

Pathlight is seeking a care provider or couple in Franklin County to share their home with "S," a friendly, respectful, and hardworking 27-year-old young man. S. enjoys tending to plants and flowers, but aside from his green thumb, S. is known for his strong work ethic, his pleasant disposition, and his eagerness to help others. S. can be reserved at first, but once he gets to know someone, his warm and enthusiastic personality blooms.

Although S. can drive and is fairly independent, we are looking for someone to take him under their wing and become a supportive and engaged mentor in his life. Best matches would be a care provider committed to working with S. on establishing and maintaining healthy, positive, and mutually respectful friendships while expanding his self-confidence and good decision-making skills. A home without children is the best fit for where he is in his life right now; however, S. loves animals so pets of all shapes and sizes would be fine.

Ideal candidates would also have skills in working with individuals with developmental disabilities (though not required), be able and available to develop a shared positive connection based on trust and respect, and establish clear and consistent routines. An open heart, reliability, maturity, and flexibility are required.

Caregivers receive a generous, annual tax-free stipend, respite, and ongoing support from Pathlight’s team.
