Why Work at Koinonia?

Koinonia is a leading provider of integrated, whole-person care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

We also provide employee-focused rewards including competitive pay rates, holiday pay, and 401(k) with company matching. Since we have many 24/7 locations, we offer flexibility, yet consistent hours week-to-week. Additionally, we offer paid training and casual dress.

What is DailyPay?

DailyPay allows employees to receive instant access to their earned but unpaid wages whenever they need them, without having to wait until their next scheduled payday.

With DailyPay, employees can transfer their accrued but unpaid wages to any bank account, paycard, or debit card prior to their next payday. Koinonia employees can also track their accumulated earnings during each pay period using the available balance feature.

There is no charge for employees to sign up for DailyPay. Similar to an ATM, employees pay a small fee of $1.99 per transaction to receive the funds the next day or $2.99 per transaction to receive funds instantly.
