Participant Directed Job Opportunities


Jobs within our FMS program are considered participant directed.  This means that participants employ, hire and manage their own employees.  In Minnesota, Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS) / CSG (Consumer Support Grant), and CFSS (Community First Services and Supports) are home and community-based services that help people of all ages, across all types of disabilities, maintain their independence and determine for themselves what mix of supports and services work best for them.

In these programs the person receiving the services or their designated representative is both the employer and the manager of the employees that work for them.  All employees that work in these programs are eligible to earn PTO and receive time and a half holiday pay for holidays worked (New Years Day, MLK Day, Memorial Day, Juneteenth Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day and Thanksgiving Day).

Mains’l supports CDCS, CSG and CFSS participants in finding support workers by allowing them to post here when they have a job opening. The Human Resources Department at Mains’l is not involved in these positions, so please contact the person listed within the description below if you are interested in working for them.
