Leo’s Letter: Celebrating The Direct Support Workforce This Labor Day

In this week’s vlog, Executive Director Leo Sarkissian discusses the need to recognize and fairly compensate the important work done by Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), especially in light of Labor Day.

He reflects on the key role these members of our community play within the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families, and then introduces a mother’s perspective on the invaluable supports provided by her son’s DSPs.
