In countless ways, direct support professionals assist millions of people with disabilities across the nation to lead lives of purpose.
They are personal care providers, teachers, mentors, and advocates. Their profession requires thorough and constant training, deep dedication, and diverse skill. Direct support professionals recognize the potential and desire that people with disabilities have to be involved and productive members of their communities and their efforts make it possible for people to ultimately reach their goals.
The Arc of Schuyler is grateful for its incredible team of direct support professionals who demonstrate a strong commitment to the people we support and work together to make The Arc of Schuyler a provider of choice for people with developmental disabilities and their families. Please join us during National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week in thanking direct support professionals for the powerful difference they make in the lives of others.
