Collaboration is at the core of everything we do.
Our team works together with individuals, their families, and community supports to deliver care that aligns with each resident’s unique needs and development goals.
Developmental Support Workers (DSWs) are at the core of our service delivery. They work directly with the individuals we care for, providing prescribed support and supervision while helping residents be as independent as possible. Developmental Support Workers enable residents to achieve their desired quality of life by encouraging and supporting involvement in recreational and educational activities, household chores, and money management. They advocate on the resident’s behalf and maintain homes so they are clean, safe, and hazard free.
At Momentum, we follow the standards for this field of work set forward by the National Association for Developmental Disabilities (NADD). They have identified a set of competencies a Developmental Support Worker should have, and we use these as our guide when we hire new employees to join our team.
Our Home Managers are responsible for supervising a home that is emotionally supportive, socially stimulating, and conducive to skill building and adaptability for our residents. Their goal is to create opportunities for residents to learn and grow, and to ensure Developmental Support Workers provide therapeutic support, while enabling residents to meet their individual goals. Home Managers train and supervise the Developmental Support Workers and ensure we offer industry-leading service to the individuals in our care.
The Program Director provides team-based leadership and is accountable for ensuring the organization meets its operational and strategic objectives. The Program Director works collaboratively with Home Managers, Developmental Support Workers, and administrative supports to maintain a high-quality service delivery across the organization. The Program Director is an ambassador for programs and services that support individuals with developmental disabilities, and frequently connects and collaborates with various community stakeholders, encouraging and facilitating opportunities to learn from one another.
Our Administrative Support Team manages a range of functions including scheduling, payroll, benefits, recruitment, information technology, and more.
