Recognizing Direct Support Professionals

I’m confident that our direct support professionals got into human services to make a difference in people’s lives, not because they were seeking recognition for their work. Yet, when any opportunity arises to shine an even brighter spotlight on the efforts of our team, I take it!

Such an opportunity occurs this week (September 11 – 16) during National Direct Support Professionals Recognition week. A week that has been set aside annually in order to thank Direct Support Professionals for their skillful and selfless work with individuals who have intellectual and/or physical disabilities. Their profound commitment and demonstrated compassion is valued and cause for reflection as we consider the opportunity provided to live a life that is meaningful and filled with purpose.

Please join me in recognizing the efforts of our direct support professionals, not just this week, but every day. Together, we are positively life changing!

With much appreciation,
