Celebrating Direct Support Professionals

DSP Appreciation Week Sept. 12-18: Celebrating Direct Support Professionals

Summit DD works with dozens of community organizations who provide the frontline services that people with disabilities rely on each day to work, live and engage in their communities. These organizations are made up of professionals called Direct Support Professionals, or DSPs.

DSPs know that what they do is more than just a job. They assist people in their homes so that they can live independently. DSPs provide the transportation people with disabilities rely on to get to their jobs, appointments and other community activities. And they also provide the hands-on job training and coaching services that help people find and keep jobs in the community. DSPs are the heroes among us and they deserve our gratitude.

Even with the challenges the pandemic brought, DSPs were there each day, ensuring that people could continue to move forward even in difficult times. Summit DD celebrates you! Thank you for your dedication, hard work and sacrifice. We truly appreciate all you to to make our community more inclusive for people of all abilities!

September 12-18 is DSP Appreciation Week. Please join us in celebrating all of the Direct Support Professionals who continue to give to others.

These heroes deserve our appreciation this week and all year long!
