Service providers for people with disabilities and special needs across the country recently celebrated their caregivers in honor of Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week.
Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is a week-long celebration in recognition of the dedication and accomplishments of outstanding Direct Support Professionals and their vital contribution to communities across the country.
Easterseals DC MD VA support staff, at our three Adult Day Services centers, were recognized with cake and special recognition certificates, celebrating their contributions displayed around the workplace. Staff members were also treated to massages, and enjoyed a night out at Dave and Busters.
Non-profit providers like us play a crucial role in enhancing and supporting the lives of people with disabilities or special needs and their families. “Our direct support professionals are hard-working, dedicated men and women, who sacrifice a lot to support the people with disabilities we serve,” said Elizabeth Barnes, Senior Director of Adult Day Services. We enjoyed celebrating our direct support staff, but they are the heart of our mission year round.
