Every year, in this week of the year is set aside to honor our Direct Support Professionals. Our DSPs are the people who carry out our mission 24 hours a day 365 days a year. It isn't an easy job and it calls for a person to be responsible for another individual's safety and, very often, fulfillment. That's not a position just anyone can fill.
To get an idea what it means to the people who do that job listen to Tawana from our Best Road residence:
Jason Cummins is a DSP in Day Services. He hasn't worked as a DSP as long as Tawana but all you have to do is talk to him to get a sense of how important his work is to him.
If you receive supports or have a family member who does, you don't have to be reminded about how important these professionals are.
