Job Description


Settle in to a stable, permanent part time job. We want you! Do you like to work independently in a unique home environment? We are looking for a professional female attendant/guide/mentor to work individually with a lovely woman with an intellectual disability. She lives in her own home in Novato.

Just contact us if you are interested!


Monday through Thursday 2:30 PM-6:00 PM

No serious medical care is involved, no violence, no behavior issues. This is a support position with a lovely young woman in her cozy home. We love her and you will, too. This job is perfect for students, nurses, moms, or just someone who is caring, experienced, capable and wants to work.

Since this is a residential situation with a female, the client is requesting a female only for care, support and mentoring.

You will engage in fun activities that you plan, life guidance, protection, educational opportunities and daily plans. You will be working independently but provided assistance and training from the central agency, Little Red Wagon, as you learn. Your experience with people with disabilities is required, as well as your self-confidence, high energy level, strong cooking and shopping skills, professionalism, competence, toughness, and willingness to learn.
