Everyone Deserves the Opportunity For Growth

Are you lacking the experience, training, or opportunity to make a difference or advance within your current job?

Do you feel like you’re going through the motions and not finding fulfillment in your role?

Are you tired of working around a crazy schedule or dealing with harsh management styles?

Do you feel like you do an amazing job at taking care of others, but you feel undervalued and unappreciated?

We're Growing an Environment Where Advocates Thrive

Community Support Services is growing an environment where Advocates are appreciated and paid well for the life changing role they play in the lives of those who need them. We understand that good pay, proper training, and employee appreciation are vital and missing pieces of the direct care industry.

We're Constantly Evolving to Make the Lives of our Advocates Better

We’ve been in the Jasper County area since 1978. Over the years we’ve made several changes to make the lives of our advocates better.

  • We allow our advocates to create a set weekly schedule.
  • We provide all the training you need, but direct care experience preferred.
  • Our starting hourly wage is well above the industry average, starting at $18 per hour.
  • Advocates may be transferred in the beginning to make sure they're in the best direct care position for them.
  • We provide open opportunities for growth - a large percentage of our direct supervisors and company leaders have been promoted from direct care positions.

I started in this field 7 years ago, when a friend recommended a job to me. I started out working overnights, and over the years worked my way up into a leadership position. I have always been the nurturing type, with a passion to help others and hopefully make a difference along the way. Working in this field over the years has been very rewarding, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.

The best parts of working at CSS are the atmosphere, the people, and the individuals. Our agency, though it is big, is a very tight-knit company. We are all one big family and everyone is always willing to jump in and help one another out, despite the department we are assigned to. Our individuals are great and make our job easy. We get to go to work every day and watch them beat the odds.

I once read, "Allow your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day become your profession." I've been with CSS for almost three decades now and I've realized that is really what I did and I wouldn't change it. Work always has challenges, but when the work really matters to you, you get through all of them. Knowing that I make a difference everyday even if others don't know it or see it really creates a sense of purpose. I know I'm in the right place and have been the whole time.

Meet Kara

Meet Kara! Kara loves providing essential care to others who need it. Helping others is what makes her feel the most fulfilled. She was working in a social services position for another direct care company making a decent wage, and while she did feel like she was making a difference in the lives of those she cared for, she was struggling in her role.

Her hours were different every week, which made planning for her own life hard and there weren’t many opportunities for additional training or advancement within her company. Kara’s benefits also weren’t the greatest, offsetting the decent wage she was making. She felt stressed and uncertain about what a future within her current role meant for her.

Kara tried talking with her direct supervisor about how she was feeling but was abruptly dismissed. She felt stuck! Feeling undervalued and unappreciated, Kara decided to make the scary decision to explore finding a new place of employment.

Through a quick internet search, she stumbled across open positions at Community Support Services. She applied online, and within a day she was contacted by HR to set up an interview.

Kara arrived for her interview and was welcomed with a warm smile at the front desk. During her interview, she felt welcomed and confident.

After her successful interview, Kara filled out her new-hire paperwork, signed off on a background check, and scheduled her drug screen.

The following Monday, Kara was in training.

Kara has now been with Community Support Services for 4 years. She enjoys a similar role that she had before, caring for those in need. The difference now is that she feels valued and appreciated. She’s had the same set schedule the entire time, and she enjoys life much more.

You can keep doing the fulfilling work you love and work where you’re appreciated and valued. You can make a visible difference in the lives of others, in your life, and in your family’s life. You can start a career with a future, and avoid the pain and frustration of rigid schedules and management styles.
