If you have a vehicle, that is pretty much the most difficult requirement for this job.  As long as you have been driving for 3 years or more, are over the age of 18 and can lift 50 pounds more than likely you qualify for this job. HOPE is a non-profit organization that lends support to over 1200 families across Alaska.  They are also the only organization that provides services state-wide to mild to severely disabled people.  Their main focus is being able to keep families in the communities they want to be in.  If you are looking to better yourself as an individual this would be a great job to have.  The feeling you will get when making the difference you can make for an entire family is amazing and you should not miss out on that.
