Our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the heart and soul of our organization and they define our agency's quality in every personal interaction they have each day. Their dedication to the people we support drives our success. Individuals with developmental disabilities work to be fully contributing and valued members of their communities. The availability of qualified, competent, and stable Direct Support Workforce plays an important role in supporting people to accomplish these goals. To be successful, it is critical that DSPs have the competence, confidence, and ethical decision-making skills with the guidance necessary to provide quality support and to have access to a career path aligned with ongoing professional development.
Our DSPs support individuals in day supports, in our residential homes, the workplace, in the community, and more. DSPs develop and maintain positive, open communications; and project a caring, and professional image which fosters confidence in staff's ability to provide care.
