ABOUT ABILITY AND CHOICE SERVICES, INC. (ACS)

Family-owned since 1987, we operate a social and community access hub in Salt Lake and Tooele Counties along with integrated employment supports and in-home care for adults with developmental disabilities. Our day program serves as a community gathering hub for participants to socialize, learn life skills, and access the greater community with their peers. Our participants (along with staff) enjoy going to community assets such as parks, the zoo, the aquarium, the movies, volunteering, and bowling--as well as taking semi-annual field trips to destinations such as Wendover and Boondocks.

Our wonderful staff is at the heart of the great human services we provide to adults with developmental disabilities. That's why we offer great benefits and an awesome work environment and culture.

You are happy to help them get better access to the community by assisting them with educational and recreational activities. Conscientiously, you keep accurate and up-to-date documentation as well as promptly report any concerns about their health or safety.
