Selecting the right person to provide services to the people we support is crucial. ADVANCE recruits staff who have the necessary skills and also possess the characteristics needed to work effectively and harmoniously to provide the best of service.

ADVANCE employs about 200 people working in a variety of areas all focused on fulfilling our mission and vision through personalized services and supports. Direct Support Professionals are the foundation to making sure people are living the life they want. This can mean going grocery shopping, going to the movies, passing medications, helping with activities of daily living as well as forming relationships with people.  Direct Support Professionals are essential in providing Education, Experience and Exposure as well as advocating for the person. 

We employ Support Professionals to assist the people that we support. A support Professional will help people supported in reaching their life goals. They may also assist with daily tasks, like cooking, eating, cleaning, getting dressed or getting to work. Support Professionals help the people we support build dignity and success in their lives. Support Professionals develop long lasting and rewarding relationships with the people they support. The people we support all have individual goals and dreams. Some of these goals and dreams may be to gain employment in the community, take a trip to a major league baseball game, or even go to Disney World!

Some events and recreational activities that people enjoy are; Softball, Arts in the Park, SDSU games, Rodeo, Theater, Crafts, STARS , Movies, Shopping, Dining Out, Concerts at the Swiftel Center and many More!
