Innisfree Village, a lifesharing community with adults with intellectual disabilities, is dedicated to providing a home and work environment in an atmosphere of beauty, warmth and respectfulness.
Established in 1971, Innisfree Village is made up of 40 coworkers (adults with intellectual disabilities), 15-20 full-time, community caregivers from around the world and about a dozen paid staff. We live on a 550 acre farm 30 minutes from Charlottesville, VA. Together we work in our therapeutic weavery, woodshop, organic gardens, farm, kitchen and bakery. All community members are valued and encouraged to explore a full and meaningful life.
Residential Caregivers will live in one of our family-style homes with 1-2 other volunteers and 2-6 coworkers. You will be overseeing their personal care and the management of the house. This is a volunteer position with great benefits in a beautiful setting. Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age with some experience in personal care, house management or a high level of maturity, with patience, flexibility and a sense of humor. Volunteers receive room and board, 15 paid vacation days, two consecutive days off each week and a monthly stipend of $265.
