Personal Assistant (PA) Orientation

If you are interested in working as a Personal Assistant for people with disabilities receiving Home Services in Kankakee or Iroquois County, attending this free orientation will provide you with the information you need. Upon completion of orientation, your name and contact information will be added to our Personal Assistant Registry and provided to Home Service customers in need of a Personal Assistant. For more information or to register for an orientation, please call us at 815-936-0100 or TTY 815-936-0132.

Those who complete the PA Orientation should note that Options CIL is not their employer and that completing the class in no way guarantees employment as a personal assistant. Completion of the class does enable the participant’s name to be placed on the Options’ PA referral list that is provided to people with disabilities who are DHS Home Services customers.
