To celebrate Direct Support Professional (DSP) Week this year JEVS Community Living Home Support (CLHS) staff showered our amazing DSPs in appreciation. The staff at our Ashton Rd location held a “DSP Appreciation Week” with events that consisted of food and fun! Some of the fun events included a car wash, bingo night, and wrapped up with a cookout all in the name of showing our appreciation for the work our 262 DSPs do day in and day out.
Our DSPs not only take care of their clients but they also pour into themselves and work to learn and grow as a Direct Support Professional. When The National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals’ (NADSP) E Badge Academy offered 3 levels of DSP certifications, Rabi a DSP and counselor, jumped right in and received the very first DSP certification for JEVS!
We understand the hard work and dedication that goes into the work of being a Direct Support Professional and we know that they are the backbone of the work we do here at JEVS. This month and every month we appreciate our DSPs!
