About the Program

Our program is for training only. We are not a personal assistant hiring agency.

PAs are hired directly by a person with disabilities, not by Access Living. This means you will be employed directly by the person you’re hired to support.In many cases, the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS/IDRS) serves as the fiscal agent, which means that they will pay you. Access Living is not responsible for payment or regulation of payment.

Schedule Your Training

If you would like to be scheduled for a training, contact a Personal Assistant Training Coordinator.

**PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 safety measures, there are only a limited number of seats per training. Please contact a Personal Assistant Training Coordinator to reserve your spot and to confirm training session location.
