Thanking DSPs

Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services honored direct support professionals with a recent celebration ahead of Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week, which is Sept. 13-19.

Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are essential workers who provide services and assistance to people with developmental disabilities in daily life, whether that’s in their home, on the job or at a day program.

Throughout the pandemic, DSPs have continued to provide essential services every day to people with developmental disabilities. DSPs have shown dedication and creativity in ensuring that people with disabilities safely receive the support they need during these difficult times.

“Direct support professionals are vital to the lives of people with developmental disabilities in our community, and they have really stepped up during COVID-19 to continue providing essential services. We wanted to make this PPE distribution special to show how much we appreciate their hard work,” said Carin Sherman, Quality and Performance Manager at Hamilton County DD Services. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Hamilton County DD Services has been distributing masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and cleaning supplies to local service providers.
