Arc of Yates Celebrates Direct Support Professional Week

During the week of September 10th, the Arc of Yates joins other organizations around the country in celebrating Direct Support Professionals (DSPs).  The contributions made by DSPs are invaluable and one week a year is designated to allow service providers from across the country to express their appreciation.


Direction Support Professionals are the foundation of any service organization.  Their jobs can be extraordinarily difficult and include a high degree of responsibility.  At the same time, these highly skilled, dedicated professionals report that their ability to enhance the lives of others is tremendously rewarding.


Caregivers will attest that DSPs are like family to the individuals they support, and it is not unusual for Direct Support Professionals to work with the same individuals for most of their careers.


At the Arc of Yates, it is an honor to recognize the DSP staff and the inspiring work they do.  It is because of their skill, commitment and significant efforts that we positively impact the individuals that we support and our community at large.
