Direct Service Provider Recognition Week


September 12, 2021 12:00am

Location: Arkansas and Nationwide


September 12-18, 2021

Thank you, DSPs!

During Direct Service Provider Recognition Week, we recognize the need to elevate the vital career of the direct service professional (DSP). DSPs deserve better pay and benefits. The service they provide is a career and many across the nation are working to improve conditions for these professionals. We thanked DSPs, who caringly provide the supports people with disabilities need to be independent while living in their chosen communities - living, working, playing, and worshipping, when they want & where they want. DSPs are advocates who put their clients’ needs first. With these vital supports, more people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are in control of their own lives and are included and accepted in their communities.
