DSPs Week Intro September 12-18th
Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the hands and feet of our agency. With heart and soul, DSPs work tirelessly to further the mission of The Arc. The loving care DSPs provide allows people with disabilities to feel included and actively participate in our community.
This week, we honor DSPs and their essential work. In the face of an ongoing global pandemic, DSPs continue to demonstrate adaptability, dedication, and innovation in what they do. Whether it be covering new locations, working overtime, or taking on new job tasks, our DSPs have adapted to every challenge COVID-19 has thrown our way.
Each day this week, we will be highlighting the amazing, often unsung efforts of these incredible professionals whose exemplary work makes a difference in the lives of many. This is just a small fraction of the recognition they deserve, especially during a global pandemic. So please, join us in saying “thanks” as we raise awareness of the vital role DSPs play in the lives of people with disabilities.
