"I feel so fortunate to be able to surround myself with people [my coworkers] that truly understand what it means to care about and support one another both on the job and outside of work!"

“I have met residents with more compassion, knowledge, talent, and appreciation than any other person I know without a disability. It has given me daily, life-changing gratitude and I couldn’t ask for a more fulfilling job!”

"Without a doubt my residents and coworkers have changed my life! I have so many stories about how the laughter at our house has made my day so much better, whether we are laughing at something actually hilarious or laughing so we don't cry."



ACR offers full-time employees a competitively priced traditional medical insurance plan, with no increase in premiums in recent years, and an actual decrease in premiums for 2018. New to ACR in 2018 is a no-cost-to-employees online video healthcare option through NICE Healthcare with follow-up exams, labs and X-rays as needed at the employees home or workplace. Other benefits for full-time employees include paid time off, dental, vision, long-term disability and life insurance benefits, with additional options for short-term disability and supplemental life insurance.

ACR also has a qualified 401(k) retirement plan for both part-time and full-time employees. ACR employees are automatically enrolled in the 401(k) plan if they meet the requirements, and become eligible for vesting after 2 years of employment with ACR.


ACR typically offers placement bonuses for positions with the greatest need. Currently, there is a bonus of up to $10,000 for the full-time Emergency Float position, as well as other placement and recruiting bonuses.

So don't worry, we're all in this together!


Open Sourcing

From the start, ACR’s founders Jim and Dorothy Nelson sought to make the most of employee insight and creativity by soliciting their input on how to provide the best possible care for the people we support. Research shows that having this kind of direct feedback has helped build some of the best organizations in the world. Employee suggestions have helped make ACR a top workplace in Minnesota. Suggestions to Open Sourcing benefit the people we support as well as employees. All submissions are entered in a drawing for a $5,000 bonus.
