Celebrate DSP Week - September 9-15
Direct Support Professionals week begins September 9th and runs through September 15th. Each year, Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) receive national recognition for the work that they do. DSPs are extremely hard working and dedicated people who often put the priorities of others before their own. They are an incredibly valued, but sometimes underappreciated group of employees. “We do not always have the opportunity to thank our Direct Support Professionals adequately. I appreciate your dedication to meeting our mission, vision and values,” says President and CEO Bill Vaughn.
In honor of our direct support staff, Mainstream Living will host the annual Employee Appreciation Picnic on September 15th at Union Park in Des Moines. The event will run from 11am-2pm and will feature lunch from Hickory Park, carousel rides, inflatables, games, raffles, and more. All employees and their families are welcome!
“Our DSPs are the heart and soul of Mainstream Living and I know we could not do it without you,” said Vaughn. “Mainstream Living is honored to have your talents, and the trust of the families and members we serve.”
