PAY RATES AZA United is compensating parent providers in Southern Arizona (all areas south of Marana) at the following rates:
$21/hour for Habilitation services
$19/hour for Attendant Care services
Next Steps for Interested Parents AZA United is committed to doing all we can to serve and support families, and we are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for interested parents. The first step is to fill out this application and then we will contact you with next steps.
This application is ONLY for PARENTS/GUARDIANS who would like to work with their own children (regardless of the child's age).
Please note that parents may provide Habilitation and Attendant Care services only (not Respite). You can also have additional providers that work with your child for any of these services. Contact your DDD support coordinator if you need to request an increase in the number of hours your child is currently authorized to receive. If you need help, contact our Family Support Team at [email protected]

Additionally, we are putting extra efforts in place to make sure that the process of getting started is faster and easier than ever, especially for parents in this role. Temporary Direct Care Workers will be independent contractors, which allows for greater flexibility and higher pay than our standard Habilitation & Respite Provider position.
We look forward to supporting you as a parent provider for AZA United!
