There's nothing better than getting paid to actually help people!!
As a DSP you would watch over the residents and make sure everyone is safe and secure, help them with any issues they are having and log everything electronically that happened during your shift.
On a good day you could help people apply for jobs or different resources such as food stamps, health care, ext.
On a stressful night you could need to break up altercations between residents or call 911 for a suicide attempt. But those nights aren't as common.
Although you work alone co-workers are always just a text message away to help you figure out how to handle a situation.
