Updates for Families

People Inc. is pleased to announce that retroactive to Monday, May 17, 2021, our employees who have been providing direct support* for those we serve, will be receiving a pay increase of at least $2.00/hour to their base hourly pay rate. Some employees may receive more than $2.00/hour, based on the adjustment to the starting rate for the respective positions.

Additionally, the new starting rate for employees providing direct support to people with disabilities will be $15 per hour.

The dedication and resiliency that all of our staff have shown during this pandemic has been incredible, and we sincerely appreciate each employee. We are especially proud of the critical work of our direct support professionals.

We are committed to the retention of our direct care staff and have been steadily working on enhancing both salaries and benefits for our front-line staff. Family members are encouraged to share our career opportunities with family and friends, including college students, to help provide support for loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Check out our Careers section on our website, which includes available jobs and benefits.
