Through it all we will be there to support you. Before you ever set foot in a individuals apartment you will receive 75 hours of training. What challenges? You will be yelled at sometimes. Some of our folks are non-verbal. Some are confined to a wheelchair. Some also have mental health disorders, such as bipolar, schizophrenia, or depression.  We have direct care staff who have worked with us for 5, 10, 20, 25, almost 30 years. Why do they stay? Two reasons: love of the individuals and management support.  To get a better feel for the job read our note to family members on this site. You will see that we are all about communication and relationships. You will develop a real friendship with these individuals while you help them create the life they want.

We offer competitive wages and health insurance. But what we really offer is a chance to help someone realize their dreams. Interested?

Client and parent testimonials:

I have worked at Maksu Inc. since 1997, the reason I have worked here this long is I love supporting people with dis”ABILTYS” and giving them a voice they might not have for themselves. It warms my heart knowing that I can help make an impact on someone wither it is getting them in the community, eating better, quality time with others or just being a support system when they need it. I feel that anyone with a special heart and the willingness to help others should be working at Maksu we have a very special group of people here.

I love what I do and all our clients here make it worthwhile. I’ve been here this long because I couldn’t see myself anywhere else. These clients have all become a part of my life and I can’t imagine not seeing them or interacting with them ever.

I have stayed employed at Maksu because of the clients and my coworkers. If I am having a rough day the clients are always there to make your day. I enjoy the people I work with and the relationships I have built. They make it easy to ask questions when I don’t understand something and need clarification. We are always looking out for each other and there for each other. I would recommend others to apply because you get to work with such amazing clients. We offer great incentives when you have been employed for a year or more. Those are my reasons why I have stayed employed and would suggest others to apply.
