Let’s Recap This Year’s Direct Support Professional Week
A Week Of Celebration
September 12th-18th, 2021, was Direct Support Professional Week. On social media and our website kencrest.org/dsp-week/ we specially acknowledged the meaningful work of DSPs at KenCrest and across the country. We shared a series of stories from DSPs in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware, spotlighting what their career means to them, what they enjoy most about working closely with people in the I/DD community, and more. We hope you will help keep the celebration going and read about several DSPs at the link: kencrest.org/dsp-week/.
In addition, we stood alongside governors and senators who advocated for higher wages for these frontline workers and took the time to write a message or post a video of appreciation for Direct Support Professionals worldwide.
Finally, one home prepared breakfast for their DSPs as a “Thank You” and a way to take a break from their work and socialize with one another.
During DSP Week and beyond, thank you to each of our DSPs who help explore possibilities, mobilize resources, and empower dreams.
