We Love Our Direct Support Professionals!
Our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) show up every day to provide our Adult Program participants with the support they need. That support comes in many forms in any given moment. DSPs help each individual lead a self-directed life, providing opportunities for participants to choose meaningful activities and helping them make community connections. At the end of the day, it’s about being in relationship. DSPs get to know each individual and their unique ways of communicating. Ask any DSP what they love about their job and they are likely to say “being with the people.” Being a DSP takes a lot of heart, but it also takes strength, resilience, creativity, and ingenuity.
Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week happened in September, and we celebrated ours with catered meals, fun and games, massages, “mock”-aritas, cappuccinos, and gift cards. The work they do is invaluable to our adult participants, their families, and to the community. We love our DSPs! THANK YOU for the heart and the professionalism you bring to your work. You make the world better and brighter!
