This Sunday marks the beginning of Direct Support Professional Recognition Week, a week-long celebration of the incredible work that DSPs do every day for individuals in need. DSP Recognition Week - September 11 - September 17 is a time to recognize and appreciate the vital contributions that DSPs provide to address the physical and mental health of individuals with disabilities, as well as Veterans and senior citizens.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf once again signed an official proclamation dedicating next week as Direct Support Professional Recognition Week.

Thank you to all Merakey DSPs and frontline staff for the incomparable care you give to those we serve every single day. Send photos of your celebrations for DSPs and frontline staff to Communications@merakey.org, and they may just end up in next week’s Pulse and on social media!
