DSP Appreciation Week: A message from Governor Tom Wolf

In honor of DSP Appreciation Week (September 13 - September 19), we'd like to re-share Governor Tom Wolf's message of appreciation for all direct support professionals across Pennsylvania. According to Kristin Ahrens, ODP’s Deputy Secretary, “This proclamation recognizes the dedication, the skill, and the absolutely critical role of DSPs in supporting people with intellectual disabilities and autism to live Everyday Lives. During the pandemic, they have been heroic in their work to keep the individuals they support happy, healthy, and safe.”
